When he’s right, he’s right.
Obama on Wednesday during a televised interview linked climate change to the rise of dangerous ideologies.
“What we know is that — as human beings are placed under strain, then bad things happen,” the president said. “And, you know, if you look at world history, whenever people are desperate, when people start lacking food, when people — are not able to make a living or take care of their families — that’s when ideologies arise that are dangerous.”
Though the cause was economic collapse and not climate change, desperate people lacking food and jobs is what gave us the New Deal and 85 years of progressive erosion of federalism.
