Arnold Schwarzenegger made it quite clear where he stands on recent political issues when he said he wished he could go back in time. Forgetting he only played the Terminator and isn’t actually a real-life cyborg assassin, he said his wish to time travel was related to his desire to “terminate” our biggest evil.
When Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected “Governator” of Kah-Lee-Fornia, he was a conservative Republican. He quickly, however, embraced far-left pro-welfare and gun control positions and has been a RINO ever since. Maybe that’s why this Republican in name only is also a hardcore open borders global warming cultist, but then again, it just could be that he’s insane.
At a recent climate conference, the actor said he wishes he could go back in time so he could “terminate” fossil fuels. But, somehow, the time travel thing is the least crazy part about this.
The AP reports that Schwarzenegger spoke at the UN climate conference in Poland on Monday:
Arnold Schwarzenegger says he wishes he could travel back in time like the cyborg he played in “The Terminator” so he could stop fossil fuels from being used.
“If we would’ve never started in that direction and used other technology, we’d be much better off. The biggest evil is fossil fuels: it’s coal, it’s gasoline, it’s the natural gas,” said Schwarzenegger.
Get it? He played a time-traveling cyborg in The Terminator movies, and now, he wants to use that fictional technology to terminate fossils fuels. What that means to him is anyone’s guess.
How exactly would you go about terminating fossils fuels? Scientists tell us that oil, coal, and natural gas are a result of millions of years of decaying plant and animal material. Basically, this stuff is rotten dinosaurs. Is it Schwarzenegger’s plan to go back in time and kill the dinosaurs? Perhaps someone should tell him that they already went extinct.
Besides, it doesn’t seem like much of a solution to stop fossils fuels from existing by killing the things whose death is responsible for making fossils fuels in the first place. In other words, fossil fuels exist because something was already “terminated.” He really didn’t think this one through.
Maybe Schwarzenegger’s fantasy plan is to kill all of the people who discovered that oil, coal, and gas make great fuels. If he goes back to 1791 and takes out John Barber, who developed the first gas turbine engine, he could stop the entire industrial revolution from taking place and our modern society wouldn’t exist.
Everything you do in the past has consequences in the future. Didn’t he see what happened when Marty McFly made out with his mom in the past?
The problem with this time travel paradox is that so many people worked on developing gas-powered engines that even if the Global Warming Terminator where to kill some of the bigger names, somebody else would have come up with the technology and nothing would change.
It’s also possible that, in his insanity, Schwarzenegger believes he can simply kill fossils fuels. Like he could blast oil into oblivion with a shotgun and execute coal with a belt-fed machine gun. But, the Terminator couldn’t even take out 120-pound Sarah Connor, so it’s unlikely he could exterminate trillions of tons and gallons of fossils fuels.
Just in case Schwarzenegger’s time-traveling plans don’t work out, he has another present-day solution to kick global warming to the curb.
“I mean, maybe it tastes delicious, but I think we should think then and there before we eat about the world and about the pollution. So, I discontinued eating meat four days a week. And, eventually, maybe we’ll go to seven days,” Schwarzenegger said.
Gosh, if Arnold Schwarzenegger becoming a pseudo-vegan can’t stop global warming, maybe the problem is unsolvable. Either that or it’s as big of a work of fiction as his movies.
If Schwarzenegger really had the ability to travel back in time, there are probably some other things that deserve his attention more than blasting fossils fuels in the face. Maybe he could stop himself from sexually harassing and assaulting women. He might also want to warn himself not to cheat on his wife and father a love child with the housekeeper. He’d definitely want to keep himself from agreeing to The Last Action Hero and Junior. Wow, did those movies suck.
