On FOX & Friends this morning, Donald Trump fanatics Diamond & Silk explained that climate change was a myth because, if it was real, we would feel it since the Earth is “rotating at 1,000 miles per hour.”
It’s the same bizarre logic that leads Creationists to say evolution is false because we can’t see one species directly changing into another. The misinformation is so overwhelming, you don’t even know where to begin.

Listen, you have to realize that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she’s reckless, she’s clueless, and she have a vacuous mindset. First of all, civil rights have nothing to do with climate change. First of all. And then second of all, her Green New Deal is a green new scam that we must stay away from.Now, I know that she’s worried about climate change, but she need to talk to Mother Nature. Because with the Earth rotating at 1,000 miles per hour, OK, 365 days of the year, we subject to feel climate changing a little bit. But not to the tune where we have to dismantle everything and start the Earth back over again. It’s a absolutely no for us.
I love the elongated pause from the hosts after Diamond and/or Silk (¯\_(ツ)_/¯) shuts up. Even they seemed to be dumbfounded by the response.
For what it’s worth, the Earth is spinning at the same rate even when it’s summer and winter, and the reason you don’t feel it is the same as when you’re flying at hundreds of miles per hour in a plane, and climate change isn’t something you feel instantaneously… and why am I even bothering with all this. They’re not listening.
Honestly, I’m surprised they know the planet spins. I just assumed they thought it was flat.
