In today’s political climate, it seems if you want to keep your career in the entertainment industry you have to bow the knee to all the wackiness that comes out of the modern progressive movement or else be blacklisted and labeled an idiot.
A good case in point is the fervor in Hollywood over the whole “climate change” issue, which these movie hacks and actors all claim is absolute fact, despite their lack of formal science training and a solid evaluation of the objective evidence not published by a left-wing rag.
This is so prevalent that even music legend Stevie Wonder has gotten in on the action. During a concert planed to raise money for hurricane relief, Wonder commented that anyone who didn’t believe in global warming was either “blind or unintelligent.”

According to The Hill, Stevie Wonder struck a political note at a concert to raise money for hurricane relief late Tuesday, saying anyone who does not believe in global warming “must be blind.”
“Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent,” the musician said during the “Hand in Hand” telethon.
“Lord, please save us all,”
Wonder’s comments come amid questions for the Trump administration about climate change in the wake of two devastating Hurricanes making landfall in the U.S.
President Trump’s homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert, said on Tuesday it would be inappropriate for him to comment on climate change.
The Trump administration has already started to roll back almost all of Obama’s regulations and policies concerning climate change, such as limits on greenhouse gas emissions for oil, natural gas, and power plants.
Part of the reason the left has latched on to this issue of climate change has little to do with preserving the planet or seeking to be good stewards of creation. It has everything to do with wealth redistribution.
The concept of protecting the environment from pollutants caused by private sector manufacturers gives them a justification for creating regulations that will inevitably cause business owners to have to give up large sums of their profits for fees and penalties, providing additional revenue to the government for the funding of other programs.
Unfortunately, people like Stevie Wonder are unwitting tools in the hands of such individuals, all because they lack the foresight to do their research.
