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."
We have already seen how the networks have avoided the connection of Les Gilet Jaunes or Yellow Vest protests in Paris to the Global Warming ideology promoted by French President Emmanuel Macron which led him to impose a fuel tax that he was forced to back away from due to the burden it placed on ordinary citizens. However, another bit of misreporting from much of the mainstream media involves properly identifying who it is during these Yellow Vest protests that are doing the looting and desecration of monuments with graffiti.
He can't save the Arizona Cardinals from a losing season, but progressive rookie quarterback Josh Rosen wants to save the world from so-called global warming. In Frank Schwab's Yahoo Sports story, Rosen is an Al Gore sound-alike who says the debate on climate change is over and the only question is if the earth will survive with humans on it. Schwab ignored Rosen's politics, but the tactless athlete has also been seen playing golf while wearing an "F Trump" hat -- at the Trump National Golf Club.
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.
The New York Times' lead story Thursday proved that its newish alarmist environmental reporter Kendra Pierre-Louis is a worthy successor to the paper’s previous alarmist environmental reporter, Justin Gillis, in “Emissions Surge, Hastening Perils Across The Globe – 2 New Warming Studies – Rising Greenhouse Gases Likened to ‘Speeding Freight Train.’” The lead sentence was even more histrionic than the left-wing Huffington Post’s take, which treated the carbon report as bad news but didn’t engage in wild extrapolation the way Pierre-Louis and her headline writer did.
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.
New York Times media reporter Jim Rutenberg branches off into global warming alarmism (while still mocking conservatives) with an oddity about a freelance environmentalist going viral with emotional videos of dead dolphins on the beach in Naples, Fla. that she blames on global warming: “Filling a TV News Gap With Just an iPhone.” The online headline: “News Networks Fall Short on Climate Story as Dolphins Die on the Beach.” Note how the Times steals a base, equating climate to the dead dolphins as if there is a clear, proven linkage (there isn’t).
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.
Liberals have long honored the power of "satire" to bring the mighty down to size -- when they're conservatives. Liberals are honored and adored. Take The Daily Show on Comedy Central. At least since the days when Jon Stewart brought his "God, I admire you" routine to Democratic candidate John Kerry in 2004, they've been a pliant platform for Democrats. On Wednesday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah offered that to Al Gore, only interrrupting his routine with "right, right" and agreeing with everything. Gore insisted "the vast majority" back him, and not President Trump, on "climate denial."
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.
