Climate Change is real, and anyone who tells you otherwise either works for the fossil fuel industry, is paid off by the fossil fuel industry, or is brainwashed by the fossil fuel industry. The earth is steadily growing warmer at an alarming rate and the more we ignore it the worse off we’ll be. According to leading scientific research at NASA showing a broad of consensus of 97% of scientists, the earth’s climate is drastically warming.
However, despite science and all the research that proves without a doubt that earth is getting warmer, there are still those who like to pretend it doesn’t exist, because that would mean less profit to be made.
Enter — the Koch Brothers.
And roasting the Koch Brothers like only they can, are the folks over at Funny or Die. In a new parody video they depict the Koch Brothers with Beau Bridges playing both David and Charlies Koch. He then says:
“You might know us as just a couple of chill guys who own the Republican party. But what you may not know is that there’s a major problem plaguing our society — idiots who claim that Climate Change is real.”
The brothers then go on to say that they spent billions putting together a group of the “hottest conservative pop stars” to sing an anthem that they wrote to combat those stating the fact that Climate Change is real.
The cast? Some of the best and brightest young stars in Hollywood, including January Jones, Darren Criss, Emily Osment, Estelle, and others, who are definitely not conservative. However, they lambasted the Kochs, Republicans, and the rest of the Climate Change deniers in an absolutely spectacular fashion.
The anthem, shot in a “We are the World” fashion, reminiscent of the 1980s anthem, was spot on and hilarious. This is one you really don’t want to miss.
