On Thursday evening's Amanpour & Company show, CNN/PBS host Christiane Amanpour presided over a discussion of the Democratic presidential race which descended into environmental alarmism as she spoke with Telemundo environmental reporter Vanessa Hauc, who helped moderate the most recent Democratic debate, and CNN host Van Jones. As loaded terms like "climate crisis" and "existential issue," were used to hype the issue, Jones became so hyperbolic as to complain that fossil fuel companies spent millions to make Republicans into global warming "deniers," thus derailing alarmists in "the most crucial decade in the history of human civilization and our planet."
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.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute has published a new paper, “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.” Keep in mind that many of the grossly wrong environmentalist predictions were made by respected scientists and government officials. My question for you is: If you were around at the time, how many government restrictions and taxes would you have urged to avoid the predicted calamity?
CNN's Bill Weir has long ago dumped any pretense of unbiased reporting when it comes to climate coverage. His antics on Monday's The Lead only added to the perception of him as a climate change activist with a press card. He demonstrated this during an interview with Al Gore who, as you can see, knew he was in very friendly territory.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle welcomed the editor-in-chief of Time magazine on the program to promote the liberal publication’s latest issue devoted solely to preaching climate change activism. Amid all the fearmongering in the segment, Ruhle and her guest declared that “there is no other side” in the debate over the topic.
The liberal media will shamelessly blame its more conservative competitors for tragedies, and the front-page of Monday’s New York Times climbed on board with a long investigative report : “How the El Paso Gunman Echoed The Words of Right-Wing Pundits.” The Times story included graphic blocks of transcript excerpts from conservative personalities like Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter, and Rush Limbaugh, plus Fox News guests, taking every opportunity to link the figures to white supremacist massacres.
Back to the Future is a classic film trilogy, and actor Christopher Lloyd would love to make a fourth movie as Dr. Emmett ‘Doc’ Brown about an issue like climate change. SlashFilm senior writer Ben Pearson wrote July 7 that Lloyd told the Niagara Falls Comic Con in June he still supports the idea of a Back to the Future 4. He indicated a sequel would need to include a supposedly “universal message” such as climate change.
On CNN, David Gregory says that despite his lengthy sit-down with Prince Charles, and talks with Al Gore and others, President Trump is not convinced about climate change and the "consensus" view in favor of a carbon tax.
For the last 27 years, Democrats have been trying to win over evangelical Christians who last voted in large numbers for their party's presidential candidate, Jimmy Carter, in 1976. At the 1992 Democratic National Convention, Al Gore gave it a go, but misquoted Scripture. In his acceptance speech for the vice-presidential nomination, Gore said, “In the words of the Bible, Do not lose heart. This nation will be renewed.” The verse actually says, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). Paul is speaking of our earthly bodies and the hope that awaits those who believe in Jesus, not the Democratic Party.
CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin had a wide-ranging softball interview with former Vice President Gore that revealed her biases on climate and his involvement so far in the 2020 race. In addition to getting Gore’s thoughts about the Democratic field, Baldwin asked on March 15, “Have any of these candidates reached out to you? Have you advised any of them?”
Liberal journalists have an interesting concept of what’s “sexy.” In the December 12, 2007 Washington Post, writers Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan wrote about Al Gore’s Nobel Prize. After mentioning actress Uma Thurman praise his global warming work, the reporters enthused, “Al Gore, sexy man. The thinking girl’s thoroughbred.”
During an appearance on Tuesday’s Today show in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour, former Vice President Al Gore praised NBC weatherman Al Roker for giving “long-time attention to the climate crisis” and “connecting the dots” on the issue. Gore appeared on the morning show while simultaneously taking part in a 24-hour livestream event to raise awareness about the favorite liberal agenda item.
