After President Obama addressed the Climate Change Conference in Paris on Monday, Newt Gingrich accused him of living in a fantasy world because of his views on global warming.
This president’s delusional. He’s not ideological. It’s not just that he’s left-wing. He lives in a fantasy world. His description yesterday that, you know, global warming is going to submerge entire countries, force us to abandon cities, leave farm fields that are no longer useable. This list went on and on. It was like Al Gore at his most irrational. But this was the President of the United States and the danger is he may believe all that stuff. None of it is really true, even if you really believe in global warming, none of what he asserted is true at any point in the next hundred years.
The president’s community organizing non-profit group, Organizing for Action, asks people to call out the climate change deniers:

97% of Climate Scientists agree that climate change is real and man-made, and affecting communities in every part of the country. Yet too many of our elected officials deny the science of climate change. Along with their polluter allies, they are blocking progress in the fight agains climate change. Find the deniers near you and call them out today.
Gingrich said that global warming is like a religion to the president.
His religion is global warming is terrible, global warming is a disaster, global warming is horrible. And if you don’t believe those things, you’re not part of his religion. And it’s literally a religious-like commitment to a fantasy world.
