Matthews Fearing Impending ‘Climate Disaster’: ‘We’re A Frog In The Pot,’ ‘All Of The Sudden, You’re Dead’ | Mediaite
“For the president to invoke fires and disaster – the impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms – is to communicate that what we’re seeing now is the front edge of climate disaster,” Hayes added.
He said that striking a tone of fear of the future, one that the president struck in his inaugural address, is the only way to create a consensus around the reforms Hayes believes are necessary to avoid climate change.
“Otherwise, we’re just a frog in the pot,” Matthews interjected. “As it reaches boiling temperature – ‘oh, this is nice. This is still nice. This is okay. I can live with this.’ Then, all of the sudden, you’re dead.”
