  • HURRICANE HARVEY IS ON THE WAY. FOR NOW WE BELIEVE IT WILL

  • BE A CATEGORY 3 HURRICANE, COULD BE WINDS OVER 100 MILES PER HOUR

  • AND HEAVY RAINS, IT'S LIKELY TO HIT TEXAS. LET ME SHOW YOU SOME

  • PICTURES OF THE HURRICANE, OR AT LEAST SATELLITE PICTURES, THAT

  • IS A GATHERING STORM, IF YOU WILL, THAT'S THE PATH IT'S

  • LIKELY TO TAKE, ONE MORE PICTURE HERE, THE LEVEL OF PRECIPITATION

  • AND THE STRENGTH OF THE STORM, WE DON'T HAVE DOPPLER 4000 HERE,

  • NOR AM I A WEATHERMAN, WE COULD HAVE BROUGHT IN MARK THOMPSON,

  • BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT OF MY STORY. THE POINT IS WHETHER THIS

  • IS GOD DOING IT. NOW, THAT SOUNDS OUTRAGEOUS, RIGHT? BUT I

  • HEAR FROM CONSERVATIVES ALL THE TIME WHENEVER THERE IS FLOODING

  • OR A HURRICANE, WHO DO THEY BLAME? TO THEY BLAME

  • METEOROLOGISTS? NO, AND THAT WOULDN'T BE FAIR EITHER. DO THEY

  • BLAME CLIMATE CHANGE? OH NO THEY DON'T. THEY USUALLY BLAME PEOPLE

  • LIKE GAYS, LESBIANS, LIBERALS, AND THEY DO IT IN ONE NATURAL

  • DISASTER AFTER ANOTHER. SOMETIMES, AND ESPECIALLY IF IT

  • HITS AREAS WHERE THEY THINK THERE'S A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF

  • LIBERALS OR GAYS, FOR EXAMPLE WHEN THE HURRICANE HIT NEW

  • ORLEANS, THERE WERE VERY PROMINENT RIGHT-WING PASTORS IN

  • THE COUNTRY WHO SAID IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE GAYS IN NEW

  • ORLEANS. IT WASN'T BECAUSE OF THE OVERWHELMINGLY CONSERVATIVE

  • VOTERS OF LOUISIANA, NO, DEFINITELY NOT. SO I WAS CURIOUS

  • TO SEE, THERE'S A HURRICANE COMING THIS SEASON, WHERE IT

  • WILL HIT, AND WHY GOD IS UPSET. IS IT GOING TO HIT GAY PEOPLE

  • AGAIN? AND HENCE THE IDEA THAT IT IS DIRECTED TOWARDS THEM

  • BECAUSE GOD IS ANGRY AT US? LET'S FIND OUT --

  • IT'S GETTING STRONGER --

  • IT'S COMING, GUYS. THE STORM IS COMING, IT'S GETTING STRONGER

  • AND STRONGER. NOW, THERE'S A THEORY OUT THERE THAT AS THE

  • PLANET WARMS UP THE OCEAN ALSO WARMS UP AND ACTUALLY

  • INTENSIFIES THE STORMS, HENCE MAYBE GOING FROM A TROPICAL

  • STORM TO A CATEGORY 3 HURRICANE IS EXACTLY WHAT WOULD HAPPEN

  • DURING CLIMATE CHANGE. YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ANYONE STORMS BECAUSE

  • OF CLIMATE CHANGE, BUT AGAIN LET'S FOCUS ON WHY GOD MIGHT BE

  • ANGRY HERE, BECAUSE I'M SURE THAT'S THE REASON, NOT HAVING

  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH CLIMATE CHANGE --

  • WAIT A MINUTE --

  • HUH. HOW IS THAT FOR TWIST? DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING. MAYBE

  • GOD IS ANGRY AT THE OIL COMPANIES. WHAT DO THEY DO? OH

  • RIGHT, CREATE CLIMATE CHANGE. CERTAINLY HELPED TO CREATE IT.

  • IS IT JUST A COUPLE OF COMPANIES? THAT'S CHERRY PICKING

  • LIKE THE REVERENDS DO ABOUT LGBT PEOPLE WHEN STORMS COME. LET'S

  • FIND OUT --

  • THAT'S A GIGANTIC PERCENTAGE OF THE REFINERIES AND JUST A

  • SMALL LITTLE AREA, JUST THE AREA WHERE THE HURRICANE IS GOING TO

  • HIT. IS IT COINCIDENCE? OR PERHAPS JUSTICE?

  • SO THERE'S THE OIL FIELDS GETTING HIT, THE REFINERIES

  • GETTING HIT, THE CRUDE OIL GETTING HIT -- YOU START CLIMATE

  • CHANGE AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU GET THE CONSEQUENCES OF CLIMATE

  • CHANGE. WHEN IT HITS EVERYONE ELSE, NO BIG DEAL, IT WAS THE

  • GAYS WHO DID IT. WHEN IT HITS YOU, ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU ARE

  • CONCERNED. YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT YOUR BOTTOM LINE, GAS PRICES

  • GOING UP, ETC. WHAT ABOUT THE WHOLE WORLD'S BOTTOM LINE? LOOK,

  • DO I WANT THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS GETTING HURT? ABSOLUTELY NOT, I

  • DON'T WANT ANYONE GETTING HURT, I DON'T CARE WHO THEY VOTED FOR

  • OR WHAT THEY DO OR WHAT THEIR JOBS ARE OR ANYTHING ALONG THOSE

  • LINES, BECAUSE WE AREN'T ACTUALLY MONSTERS LIKE THE

  • RIGHT-WING ARE, LIKE THOSE INSANE FUNDAMENTALIST PREACHERS

  • ARE. HAVING SAID THAT, MAN, IF THESE WILL COMPANIES -- IT'S NOT

  • IF -- THEY ARE AN ENORMOUS PART OF THE REASON WHY CLIMATE CHANGE

  • EXIST IN THE FIRST PLACE, I'M NOT GOING TO SHED A TEAR ABOUT

  • THE FINANCIAL DAMAGE IT DOES TO THOSE COMPANIES AS THEY HAVE

  • INFLICTED ENORMOUS FINANCIAL AND HUMAN DAMAGE, OFTEN COSTING

  • INCREDIBLE AMOUNTS OF LIVES ALL OVER THE WORLD, WITH CLIMATE

  • CHANGE. THEY PRIVATIZE THE GAINS BUT THEY SOCIALIZE THE LOSSES ON

  • ALL OF US WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS, WHICH IS THE

  • WARMING OF THE PLANET. SO THOSE CHICKENS ARE COMING HOME TO

  • ROOST IN TEXAS OVER THE WEEKEND. I HOPE EVERY HUMAN BEING IS

  • SAFE, AND BY HUMAN BEINGS I DO NOT INCLUDE MULTINATIONAL

  • CORPORATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT STARTED CLIMATE CHANGE

  • IN THE FIRST PLACE.

HURRICANE HARVEY IS ON THE WAY. FOR NOW WE BELIEVE IT WILL
