After her removal, Hawley told the audience, “It’s interesting this administration wants to use the climate crisis as a justification for its agenda in Ukraine and elsewhere.” “Maybe they ought to visit with that gal,” he added. [firefly_poll] Not only did this manage to get this woman laughed off stage, it highlighted an important point: Even if the “climate crisis” is our greatest enemy, China is … still our greatest enemy, too. In 2021, a study by the Rhodium Group found that China emitted 27 percent of all greenhouse gases in 2019 — more than the rest of the industrialized world combined, according to the BBC. The United States emits only 11 percent. Of course, protesting a communist apparatchik like this in China would get you a punishment a bit more severe than being laughed at and dragged off stage, which is why this kind of thing isn’t quite as popular over there. “Even if China wasn’t the world’s worst polluter — which it is — the idea that climate change is a greater threat to the United States than the Chinese Communist Party is idiotic,” Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts told Fox News. “What’s even more foolish — this administration’s willingness to ignore very real threats from China because they want a purely political win on climate change,” he added. At the very least, most right-thinking people know that people with these priorities can be safely laughed off stage. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
