Stevie Wonder: Diseases such as Aretha Franklin’s cancer are the result of global warming
It seems there’s no tragedy or societal ill that can’t be traced back to global warming, and to those who suspect that global warming theory is driven as much by social and political agendas as by actual science.
‘Anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind … or unintelligent’
| Liberty Headlines – While reflecting on the life of singer Aretha Franklin, performer Stevland Hardaway Morris (aka
“Little Stevie Wonder”) opined that global warming had accelerated the late singer’s cancer.
“I just feel that all these various diseases that we have and all that is happening in the world in part is because there are those who don’t believe in global warming, don’t believe that what we do affects the world,” he said during an interview with “CBS This Morning.”

Wonder said Franklin, who passed away on Thursday from pancreatic cancer, said that when he visited her in the hospital she was barely able to speak.
“We have to celebrate her life and continue the legacy by letting people of all the various genres hear the music that influenced us all,” he told CBS This Morning.
Wonder said he saw a correlation between global warming and the spike in cancerous diseases, like Franklin’s.
“Heat affects the world and affects us all,” he said.
Stevie Wonder knows what causes global warming: “the hatred, the bigotry …”
Wonder, whose formal education ended with grammar school, has long been an alarmist about the alleged effects of global warming, saying “naysayers” are “blind or unintelligent” during a performance last year.
“As we begin to love and value our planet… anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent. Lord, please save us all,” he said.
“I just hope that people will grow up out of the foolishness and know that we all, by how we think, how we view, how we treat others, we will never unlock the key until we truly let go of the hatred, the bigotry, the evilness, the selfishness,” Wonder told “CBS This Morning.”
“We do that and we can unlock some of those things that keep us in this place.”
