On Wednesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC regulars fearmongered about the possibility that the world will become uninhabitable for humans unless the Joe Biden administration can enact regulations on the fossil fuel industry that were blocked by President Donald Trump.
MSNBC weekend host Jonathan Capehart made absurd suggestions that humans might have to fly into space to find a place to live: “We have to get a handle on this — otherwise, we’re all going to be looking for seats on… the Branson rocket — the Bezos rocket — the Musk rocket up for another place that’s habitable for human life.”
Historian Jon Meacham hinted that there might not be anyone alive in the future to admonish their ancestors for not acting in the present.
Host Andrea Mitchell began the segment by blaming “climate change” for recent weather disasters involving wildfires and flooding. “And extreme weather wreaking havoc worldwide as the experts say climate change taking place even faster with greater impact than ever predicted.” She then brought aboard Meacham and began by asking him if the current extreme weather events are a critical time in history.
