Insufferable New York Times opinion columnist Thomas Friedman is exploiting the pandemic to spew climate change drivel at President Donald Trump.In an op-ed headlined “With the Coronavirus, It’s Again Trump vs. Mother Nature,” Friedman used a dubious comparison between Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and climate change as evidence he was “enamored with markets but ignorant of Mother Nature.”
Yesterday was April Fools’ Day. Looks like a prominent liberal business outlet did not get that memo and fell prey to a major climate change prank. MarketWatch ran a story on April Fools’ Day originally headlined “Google will no longer pay lobbyists that deny climate change, pledges zero emissions by 2025.” The problem? The source for that story came from a parody account, according to a MarketWatch update.
Liberal media outlets were quick to shill for former President Barack Obama’s recent swipes at President Donald Trump. CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post all pushed liberal spin stories elevating Obama’s tweet, which took two veiled shots at the Trump administration. One alleged the administration’s denial "of warnings of a pandemic." Obama’s other shot bleated about the consequences of “climate denial” over Trump's decision to roll back his auto emission standards.
On the Today show Wednesday morning, NBC weatherman Al Roker joined some of his other liberal media colleagues in trying to find a “silver lining” amid the coronavirus pandemic, namely that the deadly disease was improving the climate by forcing people to stay home.
The Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “conservative” opinion writer is using the pandemic to spew the same eco-propaganda nonsense others on the left have at President Donald Trump and Republicans. Jennifer Rubin wrote a column headlined “Can the Coronavirus Obliterate Some Republican Myths?” She babbled that the much-hyped “climate-change crisis” finds a “parallel in the global covid-19 pandemic.” “Both the pandemic and climate change are inescapable facts with deadly outcomes unless our behavior radically changes,” Rubin quipped.
Multiple liberal outlets have capitalized on the coronavirus outbreak to push climate change propaganda. The essential message: Hey, at least pollution is down. The New York Times, Bloomberg News and Axios all published stories touting how the quarantines, restrictions, social distancing policies and business shutdowns are helping climate and reducing pollution. Really.
On Sunday's Velshi show, one day after MSNBC host Ali Velshi recommended using the coronavirus pandemic to push for more welfare programs in the U.S. to fix capitalism, he devoted a segment to talking up the possibility of also using the deadly pandemic to pressure the airline and fossil fuel industries to adhere to more regulations to effect climate change.
Anchoring his eponymous Saturday morning show on MSNBC, NBC business correspondent Ali Velshi gave a commentary in which he called for the U.S. to exploit the coronavirus pandemic to enact permanent welfare policies to fix the country's capitalism which he alleged is "broken."
Environmentalism seems to have entered into an extremely weird phase. A great example is lefty climate alarmist Naomi Klein trying to use the coronavirus pandemic to stoke fear and anger over capitalism in an eight minute and forty-eight second video. She slammed “coronavirus capitalism” and whined that the climate is more important than economic stability during the coronavirus pandemic.
MSNBC’s on-air talent just cannot seem to help themselves. MSNBC host of All In Chris Hayes sent out a flippant tweet in response to reports that the Trump administration will be asking Congress for “more than $800 billion in economic stimulus: $500 bil in payroll tax cut, $250 bil in Small Business Association loans, $58 billion for the airlines, and a smattering of other items." Hayes tweeted, “BREAKING: We can, of course, afford a Green New Deal. That’s been true all along.”
When you see leftist propaganda touting that a contagious disease is reducing carbon emissions published in a top university’s tech magazine, one wonders why we continue to subsidize these institutions with government grants. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Technology Review, published a climate change piece headlined “Why the coronavirus outbreak is terrible news for climate change.”
On Monday's Amanpour & Co., PBS/CNN International host Christiane Amanpour echoed climate alarmists who have suggested that the Coronavirus has been good for the climate by depressing human activity as she suggested there has been a "silver lining" for the environment in China. The show also gave an unchallenged forum to climate alarmist and author Christiana Figueres, who made dire predictions about how difficult to inhabit the world will be in 2050 if carbon dioxide emissions are not cut in the next decade.
