MSNBC's Katy Tur Laments Media Don't Cover 'Climate Change' Enough

November 20th, 2018 3:09 PM

On Monday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur gave a commentary in which she fretted that her life may be "pointless" because news anchors like her do not cover "climate change" every day as she also predicted wildfires and storms will keep getting worse because of human activity.

She then brought aboard global warming alarmist Michael Mann and gave him an unchallenged forum to complain about inaction as the two alleged that there is no longer any scientific debate over the matter.



At 2:48 p.m. Eastern, after blaming "climate change" for the droughts and wildfires in California, Tur predicted: "And do not kid yourself. It will keep getting worse every year until we, as humans, either find a solution or we move."

She then read from a New Yorker article by Bill McKibben alleging that climate change is making less of the Earth's surface habitable by humans. She soon complained: "We as a global society we have turned the other way as our governments have either ignored or denied the problem. It has been going on for decades, and it's getting worse today."

The MSNBC host then read a tweet from the New Yorker's Jane Meyer complaining that President Donald Trump has appointed "climate denier" Andrew Wheeler to head the EPA.

After bringing aboard Mann, she recalled reading the New Yorker article and then freaked out about it:

I thought, "Gosh, how pointless is my life? And how important are the decisions that I'm making on a day to day basis when people are not focused on climate change every day when it's not leading every one of our newscasts?"

A bit later, after Tur claimed there was "no debate" left on the issue, Mann likened fossil fuel companies to tobacco companies denying that their products are dangerous.

A couple of hours later, as MSNBC's Deadline: White House also covered the issue, liberal contributor Zerlina Maxwell and host Nicolle Wallace agreed that climate change is a "national security issue." Maxwell also incorrectly claimed that recent hurricanes have been the strongest ever.
