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.
Between Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell devoted two segments on her afternoon show to giving an unchallenged forum to environmental activists promoting the preferred liberal view that global warming is caused by humans and is making hurricane seasons worse, as Democratic Governor Jerry Brown appeared on Monday's show and former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
Picture that one weird, older uncle you might have. You know, the one who appears to be losing his grip on reality as he sits on your back porch sipping craft beer, puffing a funny-smelling cigarette, and rambling on about how Bernie Sanders’ political musings are the answers America needs right now. That’s basically how actor Danny DeVito has been coming off lately.
Remember the good ol’ days when the weather was about the weather? Well, those days sure are no more. Now, ‘Climate Change’ is routinely trumpeted as the scapegoat for every weather abnormality going on in the world.
As much of the U.S. shivers under extreme cold, the liberal media lashed out at President Donald Trump over a tweet about global warming, portraying him as stupid or confused about the difference between weather and climate. Trump had tweeted, “In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!”
Over the weekend, CNN hosts have continued to fret over President Donald Trump taking a jab at global warming in a tweet about the record cold temperatures in the Eastern U.S. On Sunday's State of the Union, CNN anchor Dana Bash wondered if it was "appropriate" for President Trump to make such a joke about an issue that "scientists believe is harming the country and the world" as she spoke with former White House advisor Anthony Scaramucci. And on Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera brought up the tweet with right-leaning CNN commentator Scott Jennings and alluded to polling suggesting young Americans are alienated from Republicans because of the global warming issue.
On Friday morning, CNN anchors were freaking out as President Donald Trump used the occasion of record-low temperatures on the East Coast to take a jab at global warming theory. On CNN's Early Start program, co-host Dave Briggs repeatedly called Trump's tweet "bizarre," and CNN's New Day also dealt with the story in the first half hour of the show.
Four very different films hit theaters over the past few weeks. Consider: A sequel to one of the most talked about documentaries in recent memory, an artsy horror film featuring an Oscar-winning stunner, a B-movie disaster directed by a man who knowns that genre by heart, and a belated sequel to one of the most iconic science fiction films of all time.
The Magic School Bus is back in the new Netflix series The Magic School Bus Rides Again! Overall, it's still a nice, fun 13-episode series like we remember from when we were kids, but with some left turns. There is a pretty predictable take on climate change propaganda for little kids, but that wasn't the worst. That dubious honor goes to the episode that teaches kids that a monster will eat them if they don't use alternative clean energy sources.
Wednesday on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, the host brought on a former children’s television host to push the idea that the recent hurricanes and earthquakes were the result of manmade climate change. What made the segment even more ludicrous, was that Lemon pointed out that actual climate scientists have said these natural disasters aren’t due to climate change, but he continued pushing for that as the “root cause” anyway.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof declared that he finds President Donald Trump's tax policy to be "kind of as scary as I find him on North Korea" as he and host O'Donnell fretted over whether he has been showing enough "empathy" on both Hurricane Harvey and on tax reform. The Times columnist also showed his dissatisfaction to any presidential response to the hurricane that does not involve a discussion of "climate change."
