Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) has issued a statement blaming the recent hot weather on so-called “climate deniers.”
Lieu took to Twitter to share false claims from CNN regarding the heatwaves and alleged “climate crisis.”
He then urged his followers to “blame a climate denier” for higher temperatures during the peak summer months.
“Denier” has become a new favorite term from the Left that is used to smear those who don’t agree with the Democrats’ narrative.
Similarly, those who question election results are smeared as “election deniers” – but only when Democrats win.
“Suffering from excessive heat?” Lieu tweeted.
“Blame a climate denier.
“Climate deniers were wrong.
“Scientists were right,” he claimed.
“You have the power to vote out elected officials who refuse to deal with facts, and vote in officials who understand we are in a climate crisis.”
Suffering from excessive heat? Blame a climate denier.
Climate deniers were wrong. Scientists were right.

However, despite what CNN claims “scientists say,” historical temperature data doesn’t show anything unusual for this year, despite the recent heat waves.
In fact, since temperate records began in 1927, there are several years with higher temperates than in 2023.
This year, the percentage of the U.S. that reached 110F is currently at a record low.
Looking at historical data shows nothing out of the ordinary in recent years but shows far higher temperatures in the past.
While there have been heat waves this year, temperatures in 1936 were far higher than today.

While there have been heatwaves in part of Europe and the United States this summer, the argument for the “climate crisis” narratives is that global temperatures are allegedly rising.
However, different parts of the Northern Hemisphere have had mixed temperatures this summer.
For example, the United Kingdom has just experienced an unseasonable cold July while other parts of Europe have basked in hot weather.
Localized high temperates are due to hot weather, not “global boiling.”
Meanwhile, Lieu’s fear-mongering tweet was met with widespread mockery on Twitter.
Actor Dean Cain responded to Lieu’s post by urging people to vote the congressman out of office.
“Please vote OUT @RepTedLieu,” Cain tweeted.
“Someone tell Ted about summer,” Kurt Schlichter tweeted.
“There is not a thing that a politician can do that will change the future weather.
“If you think otherwise… you may be in a cult.”
Lieu is just one voice within a chorus of climate alarmists, however.
In a tweet last week, twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blamed President Donald Trump’s supporters for the weather.
“Hot enough for you?” Clinton tweeted alongside a fire red-colored collage of fake “climate crisis” headlines from the corporate media.
“Thank a MAGA Republican.
“Or better yet, vote them out of office.”
Hot enough for you?
Thank a MAGA Republican.
Or better yet, vote them out of office. https://t.co/0MFC6rPq6o
