Columbia Journalism School wants “a new playbook” for journalism in a “1.5 degree world” because “we believe the news business must also transform.” So they’ve handpicked a selection of global warming alarmists and far-left media to instruct the media how to change.
Don’t expect that change to be toward balance or giving climate skeptics any air time. But be sure to look for major media to join in. MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Vox are all part of the “journalism” event.
Accusing the president of “trying to get” someone killed is pretty over the top. But Vox’s David Roberts isn’t exactly known for keeping his mouth shut.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO comedian Bill Maher ended his show with a commentary celebrating reports that young Americans have less sex and produce fewer children than past generations. As he argued that humans hurt the environment, he concluded that it would be better for Earth for more people to "not have kids, die and stay dead."
While touting a new People magazine story about his recent trip to Alaska to warn of the dangers of climate change, during the Third Hour Today show on Thursday, NBC weatherman Al Roker lectured “climate deniers” to abandon their skepticism and think “about your grandchildren and your children.”
Well, we seem to have hit peak intersectionality, at least it relates to the religion of climate change. (Intersectionality is the modern progressive faith that all the world’s ills can be attributed to the existence of white male genitalia). We all know that global warming, like everything else, will inordinately impact poor minority women. But someone’s figured out how to reverse the flow and blame guys on the front side.
During an interview with Washington State Governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell thanked him for focusing his campaign entirely on climate change. In return, Inslee praised NBC weatherman Al Roker for traveling to Alaska and producing a series of alarmist reports about the issue.
On Monday and Tuesday, NBC weatherman Al Roker reported live from Utqiagvik, Alaska, the northernmost town in the United States, labeling it “ground zero for climate change.” Throughout the segment, Roker implored the nation to “make a commitment” to abandon fossil fuels and assured viewers: “This is not a theory, this is reality here.”
Not long after spiking an op-ed because of its decision to use “not reliable” conservative sources, USA Today published a cover story Tuesday that came across as more of an op-ed than an actual news story. The story, titled “Climate change: war, famine, drought, make more women not want children,” asks the question “is the future simply too horrific to bring children into?”
Throughout Friday’s Today show, NBC hosts and anchors engaged in climate change hysteria. Humans were condemned for being “greedy and lazy,” accused of making the planet “a tougher place to live.” In addition, dire warnings were issued about Alaska experiencing “an environmental disaster,” with residents being “the first climate change refugees in our country.”
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
The Green New Deal plan got zero votes in the Senate this week. Z-E-R-O. Yet progressives continue to claim people “like” the plan, with the help of the liberal media.
On Tuesday’s edition of All In, MSNBC host Chris Hayes slammed congressional Republicans for dismissing the Green New Deal while simultaneously giving a public service announcement in support of the measure. Hayes’s climate change activism should not come as that much of a surprise, since he once referred to global warming as “the single most important thing we face” long before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez burst onto the national political stage.
