Sean Penn Blasts Fox News for ‘Cult’ of Climate Change Deniers

“I think there are people who indulge in a culture of what can be reduced to Fox network thinking,” actor says

Sean Penn jabbed at Fox News recenty for creating a “cult” of climate change deniers.

In an interview with Bloomberg, the actor named Fox as a source that creates a surplus of people who go against scientific data.

“I don’t believe there are climate skeptics,” he said. “I think there are people who indulge in a culture of what can be reduced to Fox network thinking.”

He compared these Fox-influenced people to members of a cult.

“It’s like talking to a member of a cult. I’m not a deprogrammer, so I think what I’d do is turn away and order another vodka tonic.”

This week, during the Paris Climate talks, Penn will meet with the president of Paris and others to advance his Haiti relief initiative in the area of reforestation.
