House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, during an interview on MSNBC, that raging wildfires in California, Oregon, and Washington are direct proof of the climate change disaster unfolding across the country. 

“Mother Earth is angry,” Pelosi said. 

“She’s telling us – whether she’s telling us with hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, fires in the West, whatever it is … that the climate crisis is real and has an impact.”

As Pelosi spoke about the climate crisis, MSNBC showed a series of short clips highlighting the widespread devastation in her home state. 

Pelosi is the latest in a recent line of leading ‘Party of Science’ Democrats to attempt to directly connect the wildfire situation in the western US to the climate crisis. 

For example, California Governor Newsom, on Sunday (Sept. 6), told reporters during a news conference that wildfires in California were “the realities of climate change.”  

“California has always been the canary in the coal mine for climate change, and this weekend’s events only underscore that reality,” he said. “Wildfires have caused system failures, while near-record energy demand is predicted as a multi-state heatwave hits the West Coast for the second time in a matter of weeks.”

And none other than former President Barack Obama tweeted that humans were at fault for the orange skies over San Francisco:

Pelosi was also heard on Thursday, speaking at a news conference, indicating if Joe Biden wins the White House and Democrats return to power – she would be fully committed to passing climate change legislation.

She said legislation to combat the “climate crisis” would be among the top agenda items.

“It is absolutely a priority,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi made no mention of the Green New Deal, put forth by AOC.  

Notably, as RT reports, both the left and the right were offended by Pelosi’s colorful rhetoric…

“Didn’t Pelosi mock the idea of a green new deal? Spare us your crocodile tears,” one self-proclaimed ‘progressive’ person wrote.

And on the right, made light of what they perceived as hyperbole, mocking Pelosi for presuming to speak for the forces of nature and calling into question the Democrats’ definition of themselves as the “party of science.”

However, while Democrats desperately try to connect wildfires and hurricanes to the climate crisis, maybe La Nina (see: here) could be the culprit. 

Or… California’s “horribly mismanaged forests” might be responsible for the wildfires’ scale.

Or… new concerns are growing in Oregon that some of the wildfires have been started by arson.

Nevertheless, Democrats are seizing the moment to push through climate change legislation that would be nothing short of ushering in an era of Modern-Monetary-Theory-funded Green new Deals, and ‘Democratic’ socialism
