On Sunday evening, CNN Newsroom ran a full report in which correspondent Drew Griffin bemoaned EPA acting head Andrew Wheeler's efforts to cut regulations, as well his past ties to the coal industry and his work for Republican Senator James Inhofe, whom Griffin derided as a "climate change denier."
Appearing on MSNBC Live With Velshi & Ruhle Friday afternoon, newly-hired NBC News Technology Correspondent Jacob Ward argued that a recent string of deadly natural disasters were actually “good news” because such tragedies would help push the climate change agenda. He went on to compare the “doubt industry” skeptical of manmade climate change to cigarette companies denying a link between smoking and cancer.
Meaning no disrespect to climate alarmists of the past half-century, who have been quite formidable in their doomsday warnings, the modern era has ushered in a new wave of scaremongers who threaten to eclipse their predecessors. This shouldn't discourage the original enviro-wackos of the 1970s, who hadn't accumulated sufficient empirical data to support their burgeoning secular religion. Give those people a break; how were they to know they'd have egg on their faces for predicting apocalyptic global cooling? We're much more advanced now, so it's not fair to judge them.
In 24-hours, French President Emmanuel Macron went from postponing his widely hated carbon tax on fuel and utilities to completely abandoning it. It’s yet another loss for liberal climate change policies that oppress and strip money from hard-working people. Despite this momentous defeat, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were dead silent when Macron went from suspending the measure on Tuesday and abandoning it on Wednesday.
During an appearance on Tuesday’s Today show in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour, former Vice President Al Gore praised NBC weatherman Al Roker for giving “long-time attention to the climate crisis” and “connecting the dots” on the issue. Gore appeared on the morning show while simultaneously taking part in a 24-hour livestream event to raise awareness about the favorite liberal agenda item.
When President Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord the liberal media had a global warming sized meltdown. But for three weeks now, the people of Paris have shown they’re opposed to policies born from the accord. They’ve been rioting to protest a carbon tax on fuel proposed by President Emmanuel Macron. During their Monday reports about the now deadly riots, ABC and NBC refused to mention the carbon tax, preferring to mislead viewers by calling it a simple fuel tax.
The New York Times was shocked, shocked, to find “a startling breach of decorum and of the norms” by a member of President Trump’s cabinet. Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Coral Davenport covered a heated social media spat between far-left Congressman Raul Grijalva and Ryan Zinke, Trump’s Secretary of the Interior: “Zinke’s Insults At Lawmaker Rattle Capitol.” It took chutzpah on the paper’s part to complain about Zinke’s insulting tweet about Rep. Grijalva's drinking, given the paper’s support of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee smearing Brett Kavanaugh on drinking during his confirmation hearings a couple of months ago.
Appearing as a guest on Saturday's Today show on NBC to discuss the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham made a point of praising the former President for going left on some issues like taxes in defiance of the Republican party's conservative base. Correspondent Andrea Mitchell also saw raising taxes as a bright spot on Bush's presidency and talked up the notion that it improved the economy.
It’s old news that Miley Cyrus is both borderline insane and an avowed leftist who uses her devil-may-care schtick to get young people to think promiscuous sex, drugs, and liberal hobby horse issues are cool. The pop music star has just released a new music video for her song “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” and well, it’s quintessential Miley.
Each time an end-of-the-world prophecy is delivered -- whether by a self-deluded preacher, a group of politicians or scientists -- we are told that we must believe. Never mind how many of their prophecies have been wrong in the past, this time they mean it. The latest prophecy of doom and planetary extinction comes from a government report authored by people appointed during the Obama administration. This report, and others before it, concluded that Earth is warming, humans are responsible and that we have only 10 years to fix it.
Former Obama administration official and host Jim Sciutto fretted we could all face a slow torturous death because the Trump administration’s dismissal of a recent apocalyptic climate change report. Sciutto shared his worries with his guest, a geology professor on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom.
If you’ve been tuned into TV news the past few days, you’ve probably heard “climate change could strip away 10 percent” of U.S economic growth by 2100. What you likely didn’t hear was why that was an “embarrassing” exaggeration based on the earth warming 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
