Yes, there are fires burning in the Amazon and that’s obviously a bad thing, but one Forbes columnist chided movie stars, politicians and the news media for spreading misinformation about them. Contributor Michael Shellenberger, who was once named an “Environmental Hero” by Time, exposed an abundance of inaccuracies stemming from the current hysteria over the fires in the Amazon — including the “bullshit” claim that it is the “lungs of the world.”
One day after reporting, “These fires were not caused by climate change,” the New York Times blamed the ongoing Amazon rain forest fires on....climate change. Norimitsu Onishi falsely conflated the Amazon rain forest wildfires in Brazil with global warming: "As the Amazon burned and the world faced an ecological disaster, President Emmanuel Macron of France bluntly criticized Brazil’s leader this week and threatened to kill a major trade deal between Europe and Brazil....The contrast highlighted the gap in leadership on issues affecting the global climate. "
Jon Meacham got one thing right. On today's Morning Joe, he said that the heads of any conservatives listening to him would blow up over their Wheaties. What was Meacham's remark that was so explosive to any right-thinking listener? His prediction that someday, we'll look back and realize that Al Gore was . . . "a prophetic voice" on the environment.
On Friday, several MSNBC shows took the time to promote groups of student activists skipping school to promote global warming alarmism as correspondent Savannah Sellers appeared on four different shows and spoke live in New York with students who were taking part.
This Earth Day The Washington Post Magazine used images of burning globes, an illustration of sea levels so high modern apartments resemble Atlantis, and a photo illustration of Marines raising a green flag over Iwo Jima. And that was just three of the 24 separate magazine covers included in the magazine’s April 21 edition — all focused on climate change alarmism. Out of 51 pages including the front and back covers of the April 21 issue, climate change-themed images or articles were on 48 pages.
That’s what you call “all in.”
Near the end of Friday's New Day on CNN, the show devoted three minutes to a piece by Bill Weir in which the CNN correspondent hyped a one-person weekly protest by a teenage global warming activist in New York outside the United Nations headquarters.
On Monday's MSNBC Live with Katy Tur, host Tur devoted the last six minutes of her show to the book, The Uninhabitable Earth, by David Wallace-Wells of New York Magazine. The MSNBC host suggested that there has developed a "need to scare people" on the issue and make them "hair-on-fire alarmed" as she gave the global warming alarmist an unchallenged forum to promote his views.
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.
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.
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.
