Ellen DeGeneres Panned After Blaming 'Climate Change' for Storms, Flooding in California

The state of California got some respite from a years-long drought in the form of heavy rains this week, but because the ground has been so dry for so long, those rains produced no small amount of flooding as the ground wasn’t able to quickly absorb the excess water.

But not everyone appeared capable of grasping that concept, including comedian and TV personality Ellen DeGeneres.

The former daytime gabfest queen latched on to a typical left-wing talking point instead, appearing to blame the disasters on climate change.

“We need to be nicer to Mother Nature. Mother Nature is not happy with us. Let’s all do our part. Stay safe everybody,” she posted on Twitter along with a photo of her standing in front of a flooded creek next to her home.

Cue the mocking.

Canadian psychologist Jordan B. Peterson joked, “Maybe we should push a virgin into a volcano,” in response.

Kevin Dalton, a former candidate for Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors District 1, responded, “No Ellen, we need to hold our elected officials accountable for decades of not preparing for (checks notes) rain.”

Radiologist and National Review contributor Pradheep Shanker sardonically noted that Mother Nature was angry at DeGeneres after her former employees complained her show was a “toxic workplace.”

She hates you because you treated your employees like crap. It’s all your fault, @EllenDeGeneres!” he wrote.

host Gerry Callahan made a similar joke, tweeting, “It’ll be the first time Ellen has been nice to anyone.”

“I would find this fascinating … Except yesterday I was shown video of Ellen harassing young Taylor Swift about the guys she’s dated despite Swift literally begging her to stop, setting a boundary again and again, and clearly nearly crying. As a woman, it made my stomach turn,” feminist writer Joanna Schroeder tweeted.

In addition, Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom also appeared to recently blame climate change for the weather in his state.

“Hot’s getting a lot hotter,” he said. “Dry’s getting a lot dryer. But the wet’s getting a lot wetter, as well.”
