Faced with actual facts on climate change, Fox guest makes stuff up (video)

Ahhh, Fox News being Fox News.

It’s difficult to imagine that viewers aren’t tiring of Fox’s spin like this after so many years. The inconvenient truth of Hurricane Sandy didn’t help, nor did the blistering results of the 2012 election help the cause of Fox.

When faced with pesky truth that 97 out of 100 climate change experts agree that humans are causing climate change, the GOP strategist and Fox News guest starts making up stories to protect his friends that financially support the Republicans.

Where are you going Fox News viewers? Are you not entertained?

    Isn’t the current direction of climate change pretty much global warming? Climate change is a more general term, including of course more rain here and less rain there and less snow here and more snow there etc. Also it gives denialists a more objective term that’s harder to yell about with some particular example. Like “global warming”, what do you mean it’s one degree colder somewhere or look at the blizzard we just got or whatever.

    The sea level being a foot higher than 100 years ago didn’t hurt. Meaning, it did hurt. I assume caused by global warming. Or water from space or something.

    Sounds about right.

    Fox News learned long ago that all you have to do is repeat the lie incessantly and their viewers will believe it. They don’t think critically or care about knowing the facts of climate change, but as the ice caps melt and the temperature continues to rise in the coming decades, these folks will be remembered for the stupidity they symbolized.

    In other words, they are talking about cumulative weather statistics over time, i.e., climate. And they are not offering it as “proof,” as the above troll would have it, but as evidence.

    And you don’t understand the difference between ‘global warming’ and ‘climate change.’
    So there.

    All them yankees in New York City shoulda moved to North Carolina where super storms like Hurricane Sandy and anything else having to do with global warming are banned by law. It is now against the law for the ocean to rise due to global warming in North Carolina. The Republican-controlled legislature has seen to it that Al Gore will not be allowed to take his global warming scare to their fair state.

    Not droll. They’re just thugs.

    We didn’t used to get super-storms. Nor regional derecho stormfronts. Nor unseasonal deep freezes, droughts, and heat-waves. Nor springtime starting weeks and weeks earlier.

    These are all ‘weather’. Add up enough weather events and all of them point to increased energy in the atmosphere, disrupting climatological patterns.

    We are in the midst of an escalating climate catastrophe. If you don’t want to be part of the solution, then get our of the way for those of us who plan to be.

    “yet more insipid commentary from the left.” Part time trolls are so droll.

    pogden297, if you listened to the video you would have heard that NASA, ( yeah, scientists, what do they know?), put out a study saying that hurricane season is getting longer and the frequency and the severity of the storms has increased. The rather unusual Hurricane Sandy was but one excellent example of the trend.

  • hollywoodstein

    So pogden297, are you a paid hack for the carbon industries that are pumping millions of tons of pollutants into our atmosphere, or are you a fool who provides the corporate protection racket service for free?

  • pappyvet

    Yep.and the Earth is only 6000 years old,the President is a Muslim,and martial law is just moments away.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    ps: each year of the 21st century has ranked among the 15 warmest years since they began recording them in 1880. Sandy, schmandy, them’s are facts.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    Regardless of what this here blog says or doesn’t say, nearly all scientists agree — climate change is real and exacerbated by us. If you’re a research scientist who’s studied the issue we’d love to hear your point of view.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    SOLYNDRA!

    ..

    SOLYYYYYYYYYYYYNDRAAAAAA!

  • pogden297

    Wow, yet more insipid commentary from the left. A week or so ago, this blog had an article noting conservatives pointing to colder than normal temperatures as proof global warming is not happening. The blog mocked those conservatives for not understanding the difference between weather (short term) and climate (long term.). Then here this blog trumpets Hurricane Sandy as proof of global warming. Paging Mr. Obvious. Do you not see a contradiction? Hurricane Sandy is WEATHER. As you accurately stated previously one can’t point to weather as proof of climate change. But in your book, it’s apparently okay to point to weather when it supports your alarmist agenda. How convenient.

  • hollywoodstein

    Tell Gaius to try a different tack. Tell the deniers that Al Quaeda has a giant machine that pumps millions of tons of pollutants into the atmosphere and it is already causing the deaths of tens of thousands Americans a year, and if we don’t do something about it the machine will change the weather for the worse, and dry up the water, and make the crops fail.
    When we do it to ourselves the corporate protection racket is out in full force. If someone did it to us, we would spend trillions and go to war to stop them.
    Will wonders never cease?

    It’s a scientific fact: watching Fox News will make you stupid.
