John Mackey, the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, says that global warming is not that big of a deal and has helped humanity flourish.

What a stud.
Yahoo reported, via Breitbart:

John Mackey, the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, seems like a man of contradictions. His company’s motto is “Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet” — yet he says there’s an upside to global warming, and he’s reportedly wary of labor unions. He’s a vegan with a self-described Libertarian bent. He’s grown his business to an $11 billion Fortune 300 company, but his salary is $1 per year. To 70,000 team members, he’s the boss. Still, as he told Off the Cuff, “I sometimes put my foot in my mouth.” …

… “I haven’t been outspoken about global warming. I’ve been smeared quite a bit in the media about it – all of a sudden, I’m a climate change denier. I mean, climate change is obviously occurring. So — it’s gotten a little bit warmer. I guess my position on it is that I don’t think that’s that big a deal. Actually, humanity’s flourished usually when temperatures gradually warmed. And humans gradually adapt to it,” he told Off the Cuff.

As for regulation to reduce global warming, he said, “We can probably eliminate poverty on the planet earth in the next 50 years if we will just continue to follow the tenets of free enterprise capitalism to the greatest extent possible. So I just don’t want to see that change.”

  1. John Mackey, the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, says that global warming is not that big of a deal and has helped humanity flourish.

    Oh no! A heretic!!

    Boycott! BOYCOTT!!!

  2. But this guy’s a grocer, not a scientist. He may be right, he may be wrong, but it’s his opinion (and it’s just an opinion) carries no more weight than mine anyone else’s.

  3. In the summer of 2016 John Mackey will release a book about being a Conservative business leader whose customers are Liberal and also become be a Republican Party “candidate.” He will sell a lot of books on the “campaign trail.”

  4. Guys, please read this as this concerns you(kaffirs): http://dawn.com/2013/01/27/pakistan-still-global-jihad-hub/

    tl:dr: lots(~2000+) of “foreign jihadis” in pakistan are planning to go back home to fight kaffirs.

  5. He runs grocery stores. He doesn’t know anything about human history or science. His comments are about as intelligent as pretending tofu is meat.

  6. He’s wealthy so I worship him.

  7. Says a lot about person to work when they don’t need to. A little like Mitt.

  8. Blasphemy, blasphemy…and from the holy grail of the lefty food snobs.

  9. Just a thought: If you hate global warming,… MAN, are you going to hate global cooling.
    Temperature and climate are not static qualities you know.

  10. http://weaselzippers.us/2013/01/28/taco-bell-pull-commercial-after-group-complains-they-are-mocking-vegetables/
    No the problem with these fake non scientific group of environmentalist they really will be mad if you prove them others hates to eat their vegetables not only everyone denied Global Warming didn’t exist scientifically.

  11. Goes to prove that skill and knowledge and intelligence in business has no bearing on one’s ability to comprehend science. Or care about it.
