America’s biggest problem right now is that “We’ve got people in charge of important shit who don’t believe in science.”

Well, at least it is if you believe that world-renowned expert Harrison Ford.

Ford was speaking at an environmental awards ceremony in Culver City, California, where he was fêted for his work as executive vice chair of Conservation International.

According to Hollywood Reporter:

“We face an unprecedented moment in this country. Today’s greatest threat is not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire,” Ford said during his acceptance speech of the Founders’ Award. “It’s that we’ve got people in charge of important shit who don’t believe in science.”

He went on to criticize those politicians who let “political or economic self-interest denigrate or belittle sound scientific understanding of the causes and effects of human pressure on the environment.”

Yeah, right. The problem with this speech is that every word is tosh, including all the “ands” and “buts.”

It would have been accurate during the Obama era when the administration was indeed chock full of activists – John Holdren; EPA administrators Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy; NASA GISS’s James Hansen – who believed science should very much take second place to progressive politics.

But thanks to Donald Trump, those days are over.

Ford’s speech got even more stupid later.

Did you hear the scary rumor at the weekend that President Trump was about to renege on his promise to quit the UN Paris Climate Agreement?
The good news is that it was #fakenews. (Shame on you, WSJ!)

The bad news is that it wasn’t so implausible as to make anyone go “Donald Trump? Cave to the Greenies?? That would never happen in a million years!!!”

Because the fact is, he still could very easily.

After all, on green issues it’s not just a case of Donald Trump vs. Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, National Geographic, the Weather Channel, the Democrats, the Washington Post, the National Academy of Sciences, the UN, the European Union, the Nature Conservancy, the WWF, most university professors, and your kids’ schoolteachers, etc.

It’s also a case of Donald Trump vs. large chunks of Congress and most of his administration, from all the Obama holdovers at the EPA to the majority of his inner circle including Javanka, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Chief Economics Advisor Gary Cohn.
