They are defending the society. But I tell you stay in doors ladies and gentleman. Stay cool. Get fans or whatever. And the poor, they need emergency fans and ice to cool down — the number of people dead. I have not been one who believed in the global warming.

They have broken heat records in a number of cities already this year and broken all-time records and it is getting hotter and the ice caps are melting and there is a build up of carbon dioxide in the air. We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels. If we are contributing to the destruction of the planet we need to do [something] about it.
What’s really surprising about this is that it doesn’t appear that his immediate reaction was to tell everyone to pray to God to reduce the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Instead he suggests *GASP!* that we mere humans are going to have to clean up this mess ourselves.
