Twenty-seven House Democrats have joined a growing chorus of voices calling for the resignation of World Bank chief David Malpass after he made comments that critics say smacked of climate denial.
In a letter sent Thursday to President Biden, representatives Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), Sean Casten (D-Ill.) and 25 other Democrats said Malpass’s recent comments were both “troubling” and “unacceptable” and that the World Bank should have a “leader who listens to the science and is a global leader in combating climate change.”
“We urge you to advocate for the removal or forced resignation of David Malpass as World Bank Group President. The facts are clear that we are in a climate crisis and there’s no alternative but to take bold action,” the lawmakers wrote.

Oh wait, that's what they demanded fifty years ago, when they didn't have control of the levers of power.
The guy said that he doesn’t know about climate change because he’s not a scientist.
For that he is being pilloried.
A Supreme Court Justice can say she doesn’t know what a woman is because she’s not a biologist and that’s okay.
Why is it that in one case you’re allowed to profess that you just don’t have enough scientific knowledge to make a judgment about something, but in another case to use the same reasoning you are condemned?
the dems and their donors are salivating about all of that green new deal money
and nobody is going to get in their way
At an event during U.N. high-level week in New York, Malpass was asked whether he agreed with the scientific consensus that the “manmade burning of fossil fuels is rapidly and dangerously warming the planet.”I hope everybody notices this insanity. Malpass spoke the truth. He gave a perfectly reasonable and intelligent answer to the "gotcha" question. A miracle!
“I don't even know. I'm not a scientist,” Malpass said in response.
His remarks prompted an outcry from environmentalists including Al Gore, who called Malpass a “climate denier.”
Lol... They are trying to play “T ball” against the major leagues... They will be swatted away like flies...
The World Bank is just one entity in the middle of the pyramid of those who own us as slaves through debt, all of us...
They better be careful even going there... They have no clue what they are actually dealing with. Wait... Maybe it is good that they do...
Typical Democrat reaction. Instead of reasoned debate, just start yelling: “Off with his head!”
It seems to me that the chief scientific discipline involved in "climate science" is actually political scinece.
A candidate for shipment to the gulag until he gets his mind right.
You can bet these ignorant voices will get squashed immediately, it will be as if it never happened. Marching orders memo sent, they will get it in the morning.
They are messing with the wrong people here...
Has the left ever named any climate scientists with credentials besides Greta, Al Gore or AOC that can confirm man made climate change? I can't. They always say "Scientists say" What scientists? What are their names?
I can name 2 who have called it complete BS: Richard Lindzen and Roy Spencer Phd who are completely ignored.
Richard Lindzen, read his credentials....
Richard Siegmund Lindzen (born February 8, 1940) is an American atmospheric physicist known for his work in the dynamics of the middle atmosphere, atmospheric tides, and ozone photochemistry. He has published more than 200 scientific papers and books. From 1983 until his retirement in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a lead author of Chapter 7, "Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks," of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Third Assessment Report on climate change. He has disputed the scientific consensus on climate change and criticizes what he has called "climate alarmism."
Think about that phrase.
You're not permitted to debate science. You aren't even allowed to think about it. And you certainly can't bring up the distinction between science and policy.
You must only shut up, listen, and accept.
F’ your phony, corrupt ‘science’ you lying jackasses.
Which version of science. Real science or the “Real Science”. One is based on observations of nature and the other is a political agenda.
“ You must only shut up, listen, and accept.”
It’s the 21st century American Way.

LOL! Oh wow, I love that movie, I must have seen it 50 times. It is so right on point with how the left acts.
I first saw it in the theater with my parents when I was around 14 and wow, probably my first bitch slap upside the head I ever had to the horrors of tyranny.
What’s really frightening is you can change the title to “Invasion of the democrats” and the movie would fit perfectly with what is going on today. Falling asleep while they take over your life is exactly what the RINO party is doing today, and what is the FBI doing? Acting just like the cops in this movie. “We have Maga Republicans! Send the Swat team and kick down their door” And they are indoctrinating the kids to “join us”
