“Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant f***sticks.”
Thursday’s article described a “chilly 58 degrees” that met Gore’s Climate Reality Project when the plan was to offer free ice cream — presumably to fend off global warming-induced hot weather — at the hearings in the Mile High State. And not surprisingly Weir’s pointed reaction drew rah-rah responses from his followers:
But not all were on board:
Simon Templar added his two cents right back to Weir and CNN: “Hey @CNN, @BillWeirCNN is neither a journalist nor a scientist you willfully ignorant f***sticks…”
For what it’s worth, Merriam-Webster defines “climate” in this context as “the average course or condition of the weather at a place usually over a period of years as exhibited by temperature, wind velocity, and precipitation.”
Weir later apologized for name calling:
The glop of Midwestern guilt stuck in my chest prob won't go away until I apologize to @foxnation for name-calling. Dumb move. My bad.
