The Michigan tourism board must be gleeful since Popular Science made over-the-top climate predictions that could send people packing for the Wolverine state. MLive reported the PopSci story and video on March 22, with the headline “Everyone will move to Michigan in 2100 due to climate change ...” The current Michigan population is about 10 million, so adding about another 308 million might make Michigan a wee bit crowded.
In the episode titled “Swept Away” of CBS’s Madam Secretary Sunday night, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) is planning a meeting with the Dalai Lama but is keeping it on the down low until China signs on to President Dalton’s climate change agreement – the Stockholm Protocol, which is described as "the moon shot of our generation."
Esquire’s Charles Pierce is accusing President Trump of adding to something he vowed to subtract from. In a Thursday post, Pierce called the White House’s proposed federal budget a “vast, noxious swamp into which all those tributaries of modern conservative thought have emptied themselves. People die in there, swallowed up in deep sinkholes of empowered bigotry and class anger.”
CNN used the suffering of natural disaster victims to push its obsession with climate change. Meera Senthilingam, a CNN health producer, wrote early March 14, that climate change is causing “depression, anxiety and, PTSD.” Simultaneously, a late season snowstorm was unloading on millions of Americans. She described devastating stories of natural disasters and how they affected the mental health of the victims and, unsurprisingly, connected their suffering to climate change.
Last week on CNN's "Believer" host Reza Aslan dined on filet of human brain. This week he had to endure the wild rantings of self-described messiah JeZus who, sounding a lot like an updated Charles Manson, claimed that global warming would cause a worldwide flood which is why his Hawaiian-based cult is building an ark. Oh, and unlike the Jesus of a couple thousand years ago, JeZus is also a polytheist who worships Pele among other gods. The interesting thing about JeZus is that, despite his over the top theatrics, his global warming claims don't really sound much different than the standard issue global warming alarmists promoted by the mainstream media such as Bill Nye the Science Guy.
On Friday, correspondents on the network morning shows were beside themselves as they breathlessly reported on Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt voicing skepticism of the liberal dogma about man-made global warming. The hostile coverage even included a call on Pruitt to resign over the comments.
CNN’s Sally Kohn is known for saying wonky and demonstrably false things on air and in her Twitter feed, whether it’s promoting the “hands up, don’t shoot” meme, comparing Christians to ISIS, or saying she wanted her young daughter to “copy the Caitlyn Jenner model of femininity.”
Late on Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, panelist and Brookings Institution fellow Susan Hennessey offered a jaw-dropping assessment that “the single biggest national security threat is climate change” as it’s been the reason behind many of the recent global tensions.
On March 1, Reuters used a possibly Photoshopped photo from 2010 from the other side of the continent as it published a genuinely newsworthy story about a continental record-high temperature seen at an Antarctic base on the northern tip of that continent. The wire service's use of that not-credible or relevant photo, and the content of the posted article, attempted to tie this news to so-called global warming, but failed to explain the nonwarming-related meteorological cause of the high temperature reading.
Bill Nye the Science Guy loves to go around promoting climate change but seemingly can’t answer basic questions about the theory. When hard-pressed, the result is highly entertaining. Appearing on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight on Feb. 27, former stand-up comedian Bill Nye repeatedly failed to answer a specific climate change question from host Tucker Carlson. Carlson conceded that “most people are open to the idea that the climate is changing” but asked Nye “to what degree is human activity causing it?” Nye chose to ignore the question and smugly stated that “it’s a settled question. Human activity is causing climate change.”
La division de noticias de Univision se apresta a recordarnos, como vimos recientemente, que tiene una agenda política que va más allá de la inmigración.
Columnists and editorial boards of national news outlets hope President Donald Trump will institute taxation of carbon dioxide, citing “prominent” Republican support for such “climate action.” In February, The New York Times editorial board, a Washington Post columnist, Time magazine and a CNN.com opinion columnist all ran pieces endorsing a carbon tax. Post columnist Robert Samuelson cried “two cheers for a carbon tax” in his headline. In order to sell the idea, the media used descriptions like “blue-collar climate plan” and labeled it a tax that “could win over” Trump. The general premise of a carbon tax is that energy companies will be taxed for every ton of carbon they emit, making the price of carbon based energy increase and the demand decrease.
