WATCH The Eternally Dense Rick Santorum Say The Sun Is Not ‘Reliable’ As An Alternative Energy Source

While appearing on CNN Thursday morning to discuss President Trump’s plan to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord, former Pennsylvania Senator and failed presidential candidate Rick Santorum proved why no one will ever take him seriously.

Santorum began by saying the president should use Twitter to promote his agenda instead of attacking the media, adding:

“If he wants to get on message then he needs to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord or maybe even a halfway measure.”

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, who was also a guest, replied:

“No, no, no! There are 3.3 million people in America that are working in the clean energy industry. If you look at my state, there are almost 90,000 jobs in clean energy right now.”

To that very good factual point, Santorum responded:

“We have a fracking revolution. And it’s driving down the cost of our electricity.”

Yeah, a fracking revolution which is now causing increased seismic activity in places that have never before experienced such things. Not to mention the toxicity of the fluid used in fracking.

Again, Graholm used facts to make her case:

“Solar and wind are cheaper than coal. Right now, China is cancelling 107 of its coal plants because why? Solar and wind are cheaper than coal. Same in India.”

That’s when Santorum reached into his pocket and pulled out his stupid card, declaring:

“It’s not reliable, it’s not consistent.”

To that, Granholm could only exclaim:

“Oh my god!”

Here’s the truth, which Santorum neglects to understand or acknowledge: The sun is expected to last another 5 billion years.

Life on earth will be around about another billion. That sounds pretty damn reliable and consistent to me.
