RUSH: Brian in Truckee, California. Great to have you here, sir. Hello.
CALLER: How’s it going, Rush? Mega dittos from Truckee.
RUSH: Thank you, sir. Great.
CALLER: I’m between the ages of 18 and 35. I’m actually 27, and I just wanted to dispute your claim the other day that people between the ages 18 and 35 automatically believe in global warming. I actually do the weather here for some ski resorts in Lake Tahoe and I think it’s pretty easy just do any kind of research with scientists right now. There are so many scientists out there that are against manmade global warming, and I don’t understand how people in politics, especially the president, don’t hear from these people. You have 400 scientists in December sign a document they sent to the Senate saying that they didn’t believe in manmade global warming and said that there’s many more of them, they just can’t say anything because they’ll lose funding.
RUSH: Exactly right, they’ll lose funding and they’ll be shunned by their elitist peers. How old did you say you were?
RUSH: You’re 27. You are between the age range of 18-35. But my point is that if you are between 18 and 35, the odds are you probably buy into the whole notion that we, human beings, particularly in advanced societies, are destroying the planet via climate change. Look at General Electric, the CEO there, Jeff Immelt has made the decision to go totally green. That’s because he thinks his customers buy into this. It’s the same thing with automobile manufacturers. They’re coming up with more and more hybrid versions of vehicles. They think their customers buy into this. Politicians sign on to it because they think that a number of people buy into it and will vote on it. There’s no leadership on this, nobody willing to stand up and say it’s a hoax; it hasn’t been proven. There’s no science that can guarantee and prove that what these people claim is happening because of man. So I’m glad to note that you’re an exception to that group of people. Keep up and don’t give up.
