Thankfully, when Fox News makes idiotic claims about serious environmental issues, we can count on Jon Stewart to come out swinging.

The comedian took on all the news personalities who used the polar vortex to make the argument that climate change can’t possibly be real. Fox News host Stuart Varney said on air, “Looks to me like we’re looking at global cooling. Forget this global warming. That’s just my opinion.” Stewart shot back, “Yeah, it’s your opinion. It’s your f*cking opinion! It means nothing!”

Stewart then shared some of his personal opinions that he considered to hold equal weight to Varney’s. He said, “Based on its flavor I think led paint is good to drink. That’s my opinion. Peeing into a fountain at the same time as another person is a good way to switch souls with them.”

Then, of course, “FOX & Friends” brought on Donald Trump to share his thoughts on the subject. He’s a climate change scientist, right? An expert? Of course we should listen to him.

Watch the full clips below to see all of Stewart’s jabs.

    Are you willing to risk history judging climate change propaganda and it’s 31 years of needless CO2 panic to billions of children as a total war crime?

    Remaining Believers,

    In your eagerness to “believe” and condemn our children, you remaining “believers” didn’t notice that science’s consensus of “belief” goes no further than “could be” leaving you doomers “believing” more than science does. Now who’s the fear mongering neocon?

    So what is it that you believe in; your personal “belief” or sciences’ “could be” belief in climate change?

    If you have a personal belief in climate change crisis then people should respect that but just say it and don’t tell kids that science is agreeing with you.

    And get up to date?

    *Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.

    *Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit).

    *Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.

    *Obama had not mentioned the crisis in two State of the Union addresses.

    JS knows science’s consensus of belief went no further than “could be”.
