Because of the unproven theory of man-made climate change, one notoriously left-wing MSNBC “journalist” believes that there’s no point to living life here on Earth.
Katy Tur, who last made headlines when she confused two flyover states with each other, shared her dystopian view of life after reviewing an article in The New Yorker about climate change.
“I read that New Yorker article today and I thought gosh, how pointless is my life,” she said Tuesday. “And how pointless are the decisions that I make on a day to day basis when we are not focused on climate change every day, when it’s not leading every one of our newscasts?”
Watch a recording of her comments below via conservative commentator Mark Dice:
Published in The New Yorker last month, the article she referenced alleged that man-made climate change is slowly transforming all of Earth into an uninhabitable wasteland.
“Fires in California are burning this quickly and this intensely because of climate change,” she tried to explain during an earlier portion of Tuesday’s gloomy segment.
“Longer droughts, stronger winds and urban sprawl have made these fires worse. And do not kid yourself. It will keep getting worse every year until we, as humans, either find a solution or we move. Fires, floods, storms, famine — the effects of climate change are all around us. And according to a new essay by Bill McKibben, it’s shrinking our world. Not literally, but livably.”
But her gloomy outlook doesn’t reflect the facts. Despite a “consensus” of scientists subscribing to the theory of climate change, science isn’t based on consensus but rather on concrete facts.
In the case of California’s wildfires, while some scientists blame it on climate change, others believe culpability lies with the state’s left-wing environmental regulations.
These regulations have forced the U.S. Force Service to abandon certain wildfire prevention techniques that had previously worked for decades without problems.
“[T]he U.S. Forest Service, which is tasked with managing public wildland, once had success in minimizing widespread fires in the early 20th century,” The Daily Signal notes. “But many of these successful methods were abandoned in large part because of efforts by environmental activists.”
These competing narratives means the science behind climate change is far from settled. Nor does anyone know what sort of innovative contraptions humans might invent in the upcoming decades. Even if man-made climate change is real, chances are humans will eventually find a way to resolve it.
Because of these facts, many felt as if Tur’s dismal, pessimistic viewpoint was ridiculous. Included among the detractors was outspoken Hollywood actor James Woods.

This is just beyond ridiculous. There is no real evidence that climate change is caused by human activity. The “science “ that purports to show this is not science. The IPCC is political not scientific. Just nonsense.

Critical thinking and healthy skepticism are so hard for millenials, apparently.

This statement is a direct consequence of working for MSNBC-13. Someone needs a couple dozen sessions on a shrinks couch.

Working for MSNBC would cause anyone to feel their life was pointless.

If her life is this ‘pointless’ over this subject matter, she has very low expectations & a minimal tolerance level for dealing with life & its complexity.

Nice to see that people have zero confidence in human ingenuity. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄…and believes that we are completely responsible for the uncontrollable.

I suppose she would be right if we all hadn’t already died 40 years ago from the population bomb…or died again 20 years ago from the melting ice caps. #HyperboleSells

The latter tweet alluded to the myriad of doomsday theories that have been peddled over the last few decades by non-scientist Democrats, most notably former Vice President Al Gore.
In his 2006 film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” he claimed the Earth would reach a point of no return within 10 years unless certain drastic measures were taken to stave off climate change.
Watch the below interview from 2017 to see Fox News host Chris Wallace confronting the former vice president about this debunked theory:
Perhaps in another ten years, Wallace can pose similar questions to Tur about her theory that life on Earth is pointless because the planet will soon be entirely uninhabitable.
In the meantime, the MSNBC host should prepare for more mockery like this:
I would appreciate if she transfers her 401k to me since she won’t be needing it.

By her own standards, her life is meaningless regardless of global warming being man-made or being avoidable. pic.twitter.com/NKJ67KAq2q

If MSNBC would fire her and all the other left leaning mouthpieces the reduction of hot air would decrease the world’s overall temperature by 4 degrees! Hurray we’re all saved!!!
