Oklahoman gives editorial blank space to Robert “Spaulding” Hefner the V…

It looks like my praise of The Oklahoman's recent coverage on global warming was a bit premature.


As an Ogle Mole pointed out in our comments section, the paper recently gave Robert "Spaulding" Hefner the V – the spawn of Crazy Carol Hefner, and guy who once wanted to meet me in a parking lot – some blank editorial space to criticize global leaders for "weaponizing fear" on global warming.


He's also mad that these leaders aren't not doing enough to give developing countries more access to fossil fuels so they can do their part to increase global temperatures.

The world needs climate leaders who prioritize people over molecules


World leaders descended upon Glasgow, Scotland, for COP26 at the end of the week to exert their Western arrogance upon the rest of the world, without a thought of the 1 billion people still living in energy poverty today.


These people are forced to cook with wood and dung in their homes, leading to indoor air pollution that kills about 4 million per year, making it the deadliest environmental problem facing the world today — 2,667% more deaths per year than those attributed to climate change.


They meet on the heels of the president of Uganda making a powerful statement that “Africa can’t sacrifice its future prosperity for Western climate goals” and ministers from the G-24 labeling net-zero goals “anti-equity.” They have a point, too. When did we start caring more about molecules than we did people?


Yep, when did we start caring more about molecules than we did people??? That's a great question, Mr. Trust Fund Kid That Comes From A Family Of Oil Overlords That Have Always Care About Petroleum Molecules More Than People.


That being said, Spaulding does bring up a decent point about indoor air pollution. It is a complicated, nuanced issue that the UN and governments are aware of. If you want to learn more about it, I'd suggest reading this article or this article.
