Amid all the media hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious 60 Minutes interview, one common theme that emerged on Monday morning was all three broadcast networks fretting over his skepticism of man-made climate change. Anchors and correspondents were aghast that Trump could have any doubt in the wake of a recent “dire” United Nations report on the global climate.
After the liberal media spent years telling viewers that climate change would increase the frequency and severity of hurricanes, on Friday, NBC’s Today show weatherman Al Roker revealed that the changing climate would actually decrease the number of storms during the upcoming hurricane season.
After preaching about climate change on Friday’s Today show, Al Roker filled in for vacationing Megyn Kelly in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour and led a panel discussion celebrating liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announcing that she wouldn’t retire from the bench for at least another five years.
Instead of providing a forecast during the 7:30 a.m. ET half hour of NBC’s Today show on Friday, weatherman Al Roker decided to launch into a lecture on climate change. Citing the American Meteorological Society’s annual State of the Climate report, Roker warned viewers that “we’ve seen a lot of climate change going on.”
While reporting from Spring, Texas to promote charitable efforts to rebuild the community in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, on Tuesday’s NBC Today, weatherman Al Roker used the devastation from the natural disaster to push the climate change agenda. Citing a MIT study, he warned that such deadly weather events would “become more and more prevalent.”
Millions of Christians around the globe including world leaders like Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, celebrated and remembered the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Even secular news outlets acknowledged that Luther and the Reformation helped “lay the foundations for the modern world,” “contributed to the expansion of literacy” and more.
So if you are a regular Rush Limbaugh listener - as I am - you heard Rush discussing the approaching Hurricane Irma this past week. And if you were paying attention, as I was, you heard him discuss the quite obvious fact that climate change believers (or science deniers as I call them) would be using Irma - as with Hurricane Harvey and others before that - as evidence of climate change. Aka: global warming.
The liberal media lashed into Rush Limbaugh over a Tuesday monologue about hurricanes and the media. He lamented how even the weather has been corrupted and politicized by the media as a way to promote panic over “climate change.” NBC weatherman Al Roker falsely claimed on Twitter that Limbaugh said "Irma is not a dangerous storm" and is "fake." His tweets were fake news.
On Friday’s NBC Today, the hosts of the 9 a.m. ET hour ran to the defense of NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt in the wake of Donald Trump questioning the political views of the presidential debate moderator. Weatherman Al Roker proclaimed: “Lester Holt is moderating it, and if there's anybody who can withstand the pressure and be down the middle and cool and calm and take this thing on, it is Lester Holt.”
During an interview with actress Tika Sumpter in 9 a.m. ET hour of Monday’s NBC Today about her role in a new biopic about the first date of Barack and Michelle Obama, co-host Al Roker eagerly wondered if the First Couple had seen the movie yet: “Have you heard at all from the Obamas?” Sumpter replied: “We haven't, not yet. I mean, I know they know about it."
On Tuesday’s NBC Today, Al Roker used an 8 a.m. ET hour weather report to mount his climate change soapbox and issue a dire warning to viewers: “Well, it has been a really hot year and it just continues. 15 consecutive months of record warmth, global temperatures....But look what happens if we project out to 2050, look at how much further you start to see that deep red of 50-plus days above 100.”
On Tuesday, both NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning actually promoted an offensive temper tantrum thrown by congressional Democrats in the House of Representatives on Monday during what was supposed to be a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the Orlando terrorist attack.
