Geez… It’s obvious that Gary Johnson has already blasted off to another planet. Sorry, but his tongue episode that aired on Morning Joe was the weirdest thing ever. I have to believe he’s already inhabiting another planet. Is he the new Starfleet Commander willing to be the first human to inhabit Aleppo Centauri? How often did he say he smoked pot?
Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said on Sunday that the human race will need to colonize other worlds in order to survive.
“This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked the former New Mexico governor about something he said in 2011, when he seemed to dismiss the growing threat of climate change.
“In billions of years, the sun is going to actually grow and encompass the Earth, right? So global warming is in our future,” Johnson, who opposes environmental regulation, said at the time.
Here’s the somewhat puzzling exchange from Sunday:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Does that mean we don’t do anything about it now?
JOHNSON: No, George. Come on.
Can’t ― can’t we have a little humor once in a while?
And that is long-term. I mean the plate tectonics, uh, at one point, Africa and South America separated and I am talking now about the Earth and the fact that we have existed for billions of years and will going forward.
Look, what it points to, also, is the fact that we do have to inhabit other planets. I mean the future of the human race is of ― is space exploration.
