Sigourney Weaver’s New Climate Sci-Fi Flick

Here is a clip of Sigourney Weaver poignantly talking about the Texas and Kansas drought which is happening “right now”, and how it is caused by “climate change” and is putting farmers and ranchers out of business. Only problem is. everything she said was untrue and the exact opposite of reality..

There isn’t any drought in Kansas or Texas. Most of Texas is considered “Extremely moist” right now.

This is what an actual farm looks like in Texas on July 30, 2016. Green as far as the eye can see.

Kansas is also much wetter than normal, and has been for most of the last 50 years.

Farmers in Kansas are having problems because they are growing too much corn.

Things weren’t always this good. This is what Kansas looked like 80 years ago.

Everything that Sigourney Weaver said in this clip was a complete nonsense. There is no drought in Texas or Kansas. Farmers are not having problems growing crops, and droughts used to be much worse in Texas and Kansas.

Did Sigourney never watch The Wizard of Oz or read The Grapes of Wrath? But then again why would her speech be any different than all the other lies at the convention?

    So she’s a pretty good actress. How much did she get paid to say that?

    There has been no drought since 2012. This is going to be the 4th straight bumper corn crop. More grain that we know what to do with.

    Only one significantly reduced corn crop due to drought since 1988, as opposed to four between 1930 and 1936. 1934 and 1936 by close to 50%!

    Of course, alarmists will say it was because straight white male rube farmers ruining the soil, like ten years of on and off very severe drought had nothing to do with it. Right!

      NO, No, Andy you have it WRONG!

      It was the very low levels of CO2 prior to industrialization of farming and CO2 starvation in plants that cause the 1930s dust bowl. We all know that.

    The only thing that is “… putting farmers and ranchers out of business.” is the US Government via the Food Safety Modernization Act with all it’s red tape.

    I would say this is a twofer. Blame Climate Change for the devastation visited on farmers by the government.

    The Guardian did the same in ~2010, when they blamed Climate Change for the suicides in India when it was actually Monsanto and GMO crops.

    Farmers were hooked by the hype that GMO cotton would have a far better yield. Then they had to buy not only seed every year instead of using the best saved seed, but herbicides (Round-up) and pesticides. The deaths were often from drinking Monsanto pesticides. (Major hint as to the cause right there.)

    …Interesting then that a contributor to the FAO’s Forum, Professor El-Tayeb, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Industrial Biotechnology at Cairo University commented that: “..currently available (GMO’s) mostly contribute negatively to poverty alleviation and food security – and positively to the stock market.” www(DOT)warmwell.com/gm.html

    The Propaganda media is STILL defending Monsanto BTW.

    But the reality is Monsanto official Beaten by farmers in India over Failed GMO Bt Cotton Seeds which again points to the Monsanto con artists not Climate Change.

    Mother Jones has a decent article on the subject.

    Tony, I am hoping that Trump’s AGW advisors make good use of your website.
    Your posted info is vitally important to the Trump campaign.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Tony sent info. to Sundance. I know his site is monitored by Trump’s Staff so with luck they will be clued in to this site if Sundance forwards the info.

      You can contact the Trump campaign direct via

      I would do it but my IP address has been banned and I now have a very very limited voice on the internet. TPTB does not like logical arguments in support of Trump so I was banned quite early at American Thinker, Breitbart and then all of DISQUS and then a couple weeks later an IP address ban.

      Note that foul language is OK but logic coupled with facts is not!

      One nice thing, we are now finding out just how much censorship of information goes on today.

    Sigourney Weaver, like most Hollywood “stars”, has intimate knowledge of Malibu, Aspen, the Hamptons, Nantucket, St. Tropez, and Gstaad.

    I’d bet a bunch she’s not been within 500 miles of west Texas or any part of Kansas in the last 20 years (I’m talking lateral distance, not fly-over altitude)

    In her profession, she’s paid enormous sums to speak emotional lines written by others

    [nonetheless, I love the movie “Dave”, especially Kevin Kline]

    As I’ve said before, I live in San Antonio, Tx. We are currently NOT in a drought right now. We had an extremely rainy Spring and then we got heavy rain on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday just this last week. Rain during the Summer here is very uncommon, at least in San Antonio.
