Pat Sajak decided to weigh in on the climate change debate with some classic, old man “get off my lawn”-ery on Twitter, so we’ve got a puzzle we think he’ll be able to solve. We’ve also got some fabulous prizes—like not caring what he thinks about facts.
Here’s what Sajak had to say on Twitter:
I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

I don’t know what it is about America that makes me unpatriotic for being concerned for the welfare of the world, but he’s entitled to his opinion, I guess. He also added:
Very hot weather: “We’re all going to die!” Very cold weather: “There’s a difference between climate & weather, moron!”

Sure, both sides of this argument get a little hyperbolic and crack jokes during weather events, so maybe we should all knock it off. That doesn’t make any of us racist or un-American, though, so maybe Sajak should hold off on the hyperbole a little himself.
Or, he could behave like a real mature adult and spell out cryptic, strongly worded messages to us on the Internet.
