The Media and Climate Change

    A fascinating video about how certain sections of media can listen to an expert say something, cherry pick a few sentences and then completely distort what was said so that it agrees with their view point.

    It's colossally irresponsible, but then what can you expect of Glenn Beck and his ilk.

    I've always been amused by Drudge's misunderstanding of global warming. He cites early or late cold weather as "proof" that GW is false, not understanding that GW has resulted in a greater number of extreme swings of weather, cold as well as hot weather.
    Saying "oh it's cold outside" doesn't debunk GW but is evidence that we are experience greater swings of extreme weather.

    I've always wondered -- If say Dick Cheney were the spokesmen for all things climate change as opposed to Al Gore would people take it as seriously?

    Gore is a foof. Nobody should believe in climate change because of him. And nobody should deny it because of him.

    Your words would ring true if the extreme hots had been happening. But here where I live we average eight 90-degree days a summer. We've had one in the last two summers combined. Back-to-back very cool summers. And the previous two winters have been colder than normal or average. We've been running about 15 degrees below normal for the last week. We have not been experiencing 15-degrees-above-normal extended periods for two years.

    I don't know if it is colder or hotter and don't really care.

    The kookacracy, however, comes when the pinheads try to claim that global warming is man made.

    That is the idiocy of it.

    Or when the other pinheads go ballistic declaring, prima facie, that it is not.

    If Haliburton could profit from climate change, then you wouldn't be able to shut the war criminal up
