Appearing on Facebook Live with CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama continued to fear-monger, claiming that the entire planet will be underwater because people in developing countries will need electricity.
“There are entire continents, sub-Saharan Africa or the Indian sub-continent where people are developing rapidly, they’re getting connected,” he said. “They’re going to need electricity, they’re going to need energy, but if they duplicate the ways that we produce energy here, or have in the past, then the entire planet is under water.”
Obama urged the world to use social media to work together to solve climate change before it was too late.
But Obama also paid homage to the Facebook CEO, praising him for contributing to the social media revolution.
“Well, if you think about just 2008, and what’s happened in social media, as something that you helped to lead obviously, that has been an incredible transformation,” Obama said.
“We didn’t talk about this beforehand,” Zuckerberg informed his viewers awkwardly.
“No we did not,” Obama replied, but praised Zuckerberg for social media changing politics, education, and economics.
It’s not the first time Obama has made this type of outlandish claim.
“Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy,” Obama said during a townhall event in Johannesburg, South Africa back in 2013.
