Stevie Wonder Calls Climate Deniers Either “Blind or Unintelligent”

HeadlineSep 14, 2017

Increasing climate chaos has driven a number of celebrities to warn of the dangers of global warming. At Tuesday night’s “Hand in Hand” hurricane relief telethon, music legend Beyoncé warned that devastation from hurricanes Harvey and Irma—and massive flooding in South Asia—is due to climate change. The telethon kicked off with a message from Stevie Wonder, who called out climate deniers ahead of a rendition of the classic song “Stand by Me.”

Stevie Wonder: “As we should begin to love and value our planet, and anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”
