It seems progressive Democrats waste no opportunity to push the narrative of climate change – even using the momentous birth of a royal baby to sound the alarm.

Sen. Brian Schatz sparked a collective eye-roll on social media after offering his two-cents on a name for the newest British royal, a baby boy born to Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, on Monday.

While the world celebrated the birth of Queen Elizabeth’s eighth great-grandchild, and speculation ran rampant about name possibilities, Schatz could not let the moment pass without political commentary.

The Hawaii Democrat found very few on the left who cheered on his idea.

The Twitter page for the self-described “Climate Hawk,” who was appointed in 2012 to fill the seat left by the death of Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye, is replete with climate change and climate “emergency” commentary.

In a recent thread on Twitter, the former Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii opined that the “American agencies that oversee the financial system have decided to ignore climate change.”

But using the joyous news of the birth of a baby to push the left’s climate agenda was not a good look for the congressman as his royal baby name suggestion – joking or not – was met with scorching mockery.

Many Twitter users used the warnings of “climate emergency” proponents against them.

Still, some people figured the senator’s tweet was a great occasion for some laughs and some creativity.
