It's unclear exactly what Steve's point was. Nobody claims the Earth itself is in danger of disappearing – just that it will become inhospitable to life as we know it. And as many people pointed out, if you want to claim humans have nothing to fear from climate change, the toxic, scorching atmosphere of Venus is not exactly a good defense.
Thanks to climate change, we're currently in the middle of a mammoth heatwave – the last four years each broke temperature records, and evidence suggests the next four will do the same. That's nothing compared to Venus... but sure, the planet itself is still there, Steve.
Milloy's take, as hot as Venus itself, left people flabberghasted.
If you thought all this would discourage Milloy, well, sorry. Presumably upset by so many people pointing out the flaws in his reasoning, he doubled down the next day in a series of tweets complaining of getting ratioed by "climate bedwetters", so touché Steve, we guess you won that round.
So there it is. The climate change denial take of the year. Happy holidays, everyone. Can't wait to see what 2019 will bring.
