From the Feb. 28 Washington Post comes a useful reminder that in Progressive Land the sky is always falling; the cause just depends on which Chicken Little is doing the screaming. Or when.
Talk about seeing a silver lining in a market downturn. Grist columnist Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist and "ecosocialist,"
wants readers to know that a massive U.S. economic recession might be good news. Not for people but for Mother Earth.
On Thursday and Friday, CNN has been closing out the year 2018 fearmongering about global warming as CNN meterologist Chad Myers linked "manmade climate change" to extreme weather events from the year, and CNN medical reporter Sanjay Gupta warned of "premature death of thousands of Americans" to come in the future from climate change.
Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom and again on New Day Sunday to discuss the international summit on global warming, CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh repeatedly fearmongered about the possibility of "catastrophe" in a decade if "drastic" changes are not taken to combat global warming.
On Friday afternoon, as Ali Velshi covered the release of a government report predicting "dire" results of global warming, the MSNBC Live host fretted over the Trump administration burying its release on a Black Friday. He further suggested that being a global warming skeptic is similar to being "on the wrong side of a cancer discussion." Or a "why you should get your teeth cleaned discussion."
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.
Thirteen states -- Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia -- have enacted laws to combat what is seen as price gouging in the wake of natural disasters. Price gouging is legally defined as charging 10 to 25 percent more for something than you charged for it during the month before an emergency. Sellers convicted of price gouging face prison terms and fines.
La jueza del tribunal supremo de los Estados Unidos Sonia Sotomayor entró en la quimera de la politiquería a pesar de reconocer que no debía hacerlo durante su gira de promoción de su nuevo libro, ocasión que aprovechó para atacar la respuesta del gobierno federal al huracán María en Puerto Rico y exhortar a los electores latinos a ir a las urnas “para cambiar esta vida de nosotros los latinos”.
In an absurd segment Wednesday afternoon on CNN, political commentator Chris Cillizza and CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin slammed President Trump for not immediately condemning the Saudi Arabia government as akin to “believing” Justice Brett Kavanaugh and climate change skeptics.
Whenever there is unusually cold weather in winter or chilly temps in summer, the more sardonic among us will quip, so much for global warming.Those who believe global warming -- sorry, climate change -- poses an imminent threat and has for decades (huh ...?) invariably reply, that's not climate, that's weather. More accurately, they respond this way ... until the next big hurricane.
As Hurricane Michael smashed into the Florida panhandle, both MSNBC and CNN on Thursday were worried about the really important issue: How to educate the “bizarre” and ignorant Americans who don’t fully adopt the left’s prescriptions for solving global warming. MSNBC journalist Craig Melvin talked to fellow liberal Nicholas Kristof and lectured, “Most sane-thinking people would acknowledge that the intensity of the storms... due in no small part to climate change.”
On Monday morning, several shows on CNN and MSNBC picked up on a United Nations report alleging that the world only has about 10 years to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to stave off "dire" and "catastrophic" consequences of global warming.
