On Friday's The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper ran a report by correspondent Will Ripley which promoted the alarmist view that global warming is to blame for the unusually bad wildfire season in Australia, and that skeptics deserve scorn for undermining the alarmists who are trying to cut carbon dioxide levels. More conservative-minded scientists who argue that the intensity of the wildfires is not linked to global warming, and that liberal environmentalists have hindered efforts to manage the forests properly, were not included in the piece.
Over the weekend, the BBC's long-running science fiction television series, Doctor Who, ventured into promoting climate alarmism as the show depicted an uninhabitable futuristic Earth that has been destroyed by global warming because the human race refused to heed warnings that were raised by "every scientist alive."
It must be really hard to have to report a story that flies in the face of CNN’s hype over climate change.
On Monday's The Late Show on CBS, host Stephen Colbert prodded liberal actress Jane Fonda to promote her alarmist views on global warming as the environmental activist hyperbolically claimed that "humankind is facing the greatest crisis that we've ever faced," and repeated the often used 10-year deadline to impose regulations to prevent world catastrophe. Fonda -- who has credited environmental alarmist Greta Thunberg with inspiring her to become a frequent protester on the issue -- described young environmental activists as "suffering" from "extinction illness."
You know it’s a cold day in hell when a liberal outlet like Bloomberg Opinion is critiquing the left’s climate armageddon.
The leftist media can get so cuckoo for cocoa puffs it burns! Literally. Left-wing magazine The Nation published a bizarre article Dec. 23 against home ownership headlined “California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable.” It argued that “Yes, climate change intensifies the fires—but the ways in which we plan and develop our cities makes them even more destructive.”
Oh, great, another super lefty is getting the fawning documentary treatment from Hulu in the near future. Deadline reported on Wednesday that everyone’s favorite diminutive doomsday cult leader Greta Thunberg will be immortalized via documentary by the streaming platform. Ugh, no more, please! Ahem, we mean, Yay! Greta Thunberg’s getting a movie everybody! She’s so awesome (because saying otherwise means we’re guilty of child abuse.)
On Friday afternoon, MSNBC host Katy Tur was again putting on display her environmental liberalism and adherence to global warming alarmism as she spoke with liberal environmental activist Amy Westervelt, who hosts a podcast that rails against the fossil fuel industry. A bit later, as she handed off hosting duties to her colleague, Ali Velshi, she went into a rant about the issue, confessing that she regularly listens to Westervelt's left-wing podcast, titled Drilled, and argued that it "will make your blood boil along with the boiling temperatures we're experiencing."
If the left’s ongoing conniptions on climate change haven’t proven hysterical enough, former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry decided to launch a bipartisan “World War Zero” coalition on climate change. Some of the big names headlining “World War Zero” are former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, former moderate Republican governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Kasich, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Sting and Ashton Kutcher.
Between Tuesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving week, a number of MSNBC hosts seized on the latest United Nations report making questionable predictions about a "dire" future, and pushing for regulations to cut carbon dioxide emissions. The hype included Chris Matthews accusing President Donald Trump of exploiting the push for regulations to advocate "idiot nationalism," and Katy Tur fretted that scientists have not been "alarmist" enough to persuade U.S. leaders to react.
On New Day Saturday, CNN weekend anchor Christi Paul and fill-in co-host Martin Savidge gave a forum to Dr. Inger Anderson of the UN Environment Program to give an alarmist view of the world climate's future as she predicted that global warming caused by humans would lead to catastrophic consequences in the form of increased natural disasters.
During Monday's Amanpour & Company on PBS (and CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour spent much of her show discussing the issue of climate change allegedly caused by global warming, and at one point negatively characterized word that there has been an increase in global warming skepticism in other countries as she asked her guest if it meant things are "getting worse" in terms of convincing people action needs to be taken.
