CNN correspondent Bill Weir accuses Republicans of hastening ‘the end of a livable Earth’

CNN’s expert on climate, Bill Weir, blamed Republicans for bringing about the end of the world in a tweet, which he promptly deleted.

“Not a single Republican in either chamber voted for the first piece of ambitious climate legislation in U.S. history,” Weir wrote, referring to the Inflation Reduction Act that will soon be signed into law by President Joe Biden. “Best case, they let their opponents become the party of Industrial Revolution 2.0. Worst case, their obstruction hastens the end of a livable Earth.”

The bill will pour roughly $370 billion into energy security, with $9 billion going to help homeowners switch to renewable energy and $60 billion allocated for environmental justice programs in disadvantaged communities, among other new energy policies. Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers side with a number of economists who claim the bill will contribute to inflation.

Weir’s tweet faced immense backlash from conservative figures who are attempting to counter the effects of rising greenhouse emissions.

“Hey [Bill] — we chatted about this very topic earlier in the year,” conservative environmentalist Quill Robinson tweeted, including a link of their exchange. “What’s the point of doing interviews with you if you’re going to fall back on the same tired partisan dogma?”

“The new CNN continues its march back to the center,” Fox News contributor Joe Concha tweeted.

Others agreed with Weir’s tweet, even after the CNN correspondent deleted it and apologized.

“Deleted a tweet that was poorly worded and did not land as intended. Apologies,” Weir wrote.

“Journalists apologizing for tweets that are objectively true in order to appease an online mob that believes some guy in his mom’s basement is a super secret agent with LEVEL TURBO BRAVO SUPER CLEARANCE working to root out the deep state,” Adam Nathaniel Peck wrote. “2022 in a nutshell.”

“The right is fuming about this post from [Weir] but it’s just objectively true and fair analysis,” Ryan Grim of The Intercept tweeted. “Carbon emissions are what they are, and they do what they do, and they don’t care about your feelings.”
