Colbert Embraces Conservative Solution to Climate Change: ‘F*ck It’

Stephen Colbert has officially decided to take the Marco Rubio approach to climate change. Following news that scientists believe major ice sheet melting in Antarctica is “unstoppable,” the host summed up his solution in two words: “Fuck it.”

“Folks, global warming is bad,” Colbert admitted. “I have always believed that I have always said that. But doing anything about it is, and I don’t want to get too technical here, hard.” Since he’s not crazy about making any personal sacrifices to begin with, Colbert was happy to have a great excuse to just give up.

“Unstoppable melting, it’s out of our hands now. I mean what a relief,” he continued. “I didn’t think it would happen, but we finally ran the clock out on the possibility of my personal sacrifice making a difference.”

“I believe this failure to find a solution could be the solution to all our other failures,” Colbert said, before describing how his “fuck it” principle could easily be applied to difficult issues like education and campaign finance reform.
