Tucker Carlson Is Convinced Only Rich People Care About Global Warming

This just in: saving the planet is something only rich people care about, according to Fox News's Tucker Carlson.

That was his conclusion after covering the Global Citizen Festival in New York City's Central Park on Saturday, which he described as an event for "millionaires" and "billionaires." Why? Because if you care about the minimum wage, you can't possibly care about the environment as well.

At least that's how Carlson, who argued that he's never met anyone who was interested in climate change and was not also rich, appears to see it.

"These are rich people concerns," he said. "When is the last time you met someone working for minimum wage who was really upset about global climate change or even believed it was real?"
