The Flood Wall Street climate change protest in New York has turned our national focus, once again, to climate change. While scientists agree that climate change and global warming are legitimate issues that we need to address, many U.S. politicians don't want to believe the scientists. Some have even attempted to debunk climate change via TV ads.

Jimmy Kimmel has put together a fun PSA that ridicules those politicians, observing that "It’s hard to imagine that [PSA] happening with any other issue."To illustrate his point, the comedian introduces a PSA that supports drinking toilet water, another thing that scientists probably all agree is not a good idea.
