Breaking The Political Logjam On Guns And Climate Change | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


Despite an overwhelming majority of the public demanding action from the government, Congress continuously claims to be ‘gridlocked’ on two important issues: gun control and climate change. In a special report, Ari Melber unpacks the gap in action and interest between Congress and its constituents.

  1. Conservatives want to live in the past.
    Much to the detriment of those who will inherit the future.

  2. Still way, way too low. These numbers should have been like this in the 1990’s and they should be in the 90’s in 2019. It’s quite shameful that they aren’t really.

  3. Gun manufacturers and the fossil fuel industry are bribing the Republican party to destroy your children’s future.
    Don’t like it?
    _Stop voting for them!_

      Its good to be involved but understanding what you are choosing to be upset about is critical.
      If your interested, here are opinions and facts presented by other highly qualified scientists.
      Once you read, watch and understand their evidence, you can then make an informed decision.
      Our Sun is presently harboring its lowest point of magnetic field strength in 100 years, thats huge.
      Yet MSM seldom brings it up?
      Grand Solar Minimum
      Valentina Zharkova
      Henrik Svensmark
      Roy Spencer
      About 20+ years ago i was reading Nasa articles stating several other planets in our Solar System were also undergoing their own Global Climate change, and they continued to say it was likely increasing Cosmic radiation from space.

  4. Thank you, Ari. both for talking (repeatedly) about this AND for showing 1 of TREVOR NOAH eloquent special monologues ; he’s been giving many VERY GREAT ones lately and I’m glad that you are recognizing his words! He has a wonderful way of speaking, that can be relatable to ALL sorts of groups, including a perfect mix of EMOTION and a little comedy thrown in. I hope that you and others will begin / continue to recognize and advertise and support Trevor during your own broadcasts!

  5. These issues are ignored because the big money bribing Republicans in Washington and the 35% of dimwitted voters enabling it. Daily mass shootings, the total destruction of the environment? No price is too high for these people to pay, as long as when they are screwing themselves they think they are ‘owning the libs”.

      Before becoming so riled, do some research.
      Read up on Valentina Zharkova, a mathematician and Astrophysicist, who has used NASA data to create an algorithm that has been 97% accurate in predicting our suns magnetic fields over the last ten years.
      Our sun has entered its lowest point of magnetic field strength in 100 years.
      Humans are not helping and must wake up towards becoming good stewards of the earth, but the evidence is pretty conclusive mother nature is in control and always has been.
      Our climate is cyclical, glacial ice samples taken reveal this to be the case over thousands of years, others over millions.
      Ice samples also reveal temperatures have always increased prior to CO2 increasing.
      As oceans warm they naturally release dissolved gases like CO2 from suspension.
      Whenever CO2 is discussed why is the Sun seldom or ever included; 99.9% of our heat and light comes from that big yellow ball.
      Although the sun is stable, its dynamic field strength varies and this dramaticaly effects our climate.
      Also research Grand Solar Minimum.
      I would say its going to be vital we understand what, where and how, towards dealing with it.

  6. Congress keeps, “sitting on the sidelines,” because they’re FUNDED by the Gun manufacturers, the NRA, and the fossil fuel industry.

    Nothing’s likely to change until we elect people who can verifiably pledge to accept money from ONLY their voters.

    • Gun control is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Read the second amendment, DC vs Heller, McDonnell vs Chicago, and the federalist papers

    I wonder how GOP would act if all the money from the lobbies was taken out of the equation…

    Don’t elected officials collect a salary? Could we qualify campaigns as non-profits and create a cap on staff salaries? Lobbyists should represent an idea but if they speak with money then it isn’t advocacy, it’s bribery. Seems like a simple fix but I’m just a country lawyer…

    Trump: “Make America Venus Again!”…and the rest of the planet, too.

  13. tRUmp’s gonna lose in 2020

    What would the government do if it could control the weather? They can’t fix pot holes.

    • Lawrence Smith | August 13, 2019 at 9:59 AM | Reply

      Perhaps your point is the most relative to the topic of climate change.
      How to fix a climate pothole successfully?

  15. First the price of food goes up and people wonder why. Next it gets harder and harder to find food and people wonder why. Finally it dawns on them that they were warned about this.

    The pollution released mining the materials to create wind and solar negate any supposed benefits. PLUS all of that money taken out of the private markets only slows down technology making nuclear fusion reactors take longer to develop. SCAM!!!

  17. Too corrupt, too slow, too ignorant, and just too late. That is the American response to a global issue that you are going to pay a huge price for. Even climate change is a partisan issue in freaking America. if protecting your elections from your enemies is considered a partisan issue, you will never be able to respond appropriately or quickly enough.. In another decade you will be begging Europe for help, as the interior dries up and the coastal cities are destroyed. New York will be as hard hit as Miami.
    Sea level rise will not be even close to being the only serious problem created by this warming and America is chasing celebrities, buzzing about in gas hog vehicles and ducking international agreements.
    Human greed may be the end of us. How fitting, America destroyed by Americans and humanity driven to extinction by humans.

  18. “Scientific Facts”
    But we are told the latest number of years have been the hottest of all time. And none of these Frank Capra (or Al Gore) predictions have come to pass. Time for those who push “Climate Change” (caused by fossil fuel CO2 of course) to recalibrate.

  19. lawyers guns and money it never changes
    and people die
    mckonel is a dispicable maggot
