My New Girl Crush: Miranda Devine-Must Read "David Suzuki Drives Me Crazy"

I want the t-shirt and that needs to be a song.

I'm dying. 

Via Small Dead Animals, behold: "David Suzuki Drives Me Crazy". 

Exhibit A:

"But on Monday night’s fawningly titled “an Audience with David Suzuki”, he showed himself to be astonishingly uninformed about the science he proclaims on, from climate to the dreaded genetically modified crops"

"When tackled on his reef cyclone furphy by IPCC expert reviewer and environmental engineer Stewart Franks, he rolled over: “I have to admit, that that was suggested to me by an Australian, and it is true, I mean, it may be a mistake. I don’t know.

"When a scientist in the audience defended working on genetically modified bananas to counter Vitamin A deficiency so that poor Ugandans don’t go blind or worse,” Suzuki said: “what’s the rush?”.

"Just a few dead and blind Africans, I guess."

By the end, even Q&A’s greenie host Tony Jones looked sheepish.

Corporations are not people”, opined Suzuki at one point, prompting a twitter spurt of ridicule such as “clouds are not unicorns”. 

Exhibit B: 

"Asked if he still wanted to jail politicians for “denying what you call the science of climate change”, Suzuki said: “You bet..  it is a crime against future generations and there ought to be a legal position of intergenerational crime and I think there is criminal negligence.”

"What about reckless endangerment of the economy with fairy stories from eco-pseuds. Is that a crime?"
