Reply To: Global warming lies and climate change hysteria


I haven't posted to this thread for a while, but that doesn't mean the global warming lies and climate change hysteria have stopped. Far from it; with recent snowstorms in the US, Fox "News" has merrily claimed global warming is disproved.

From Media Matters for America:

During their recent coverage of winter storms, Fox News has repeatedly mocked former Vice President Al Gore and cited the cold and snowy weather to attempt to discredit global warming. Fox News and other right-wing media routinely use snow to cast doubt on global warming, and internal emails from Fox News' Washington bureau show that in the past Fox employees have been instructed to question climate science.

During one segment about the recent snowstorm, Fox & Friends aired an on-screen graphic that read, "What Global Warming?"

In the midst of global climate change talks in Copenhagen in December 2009, Fox News' Washington Managing Editor Bill Sammon sent an email to Fox staff questioning the "veracity of climate change data" and ordering the network's journalists to "refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question."

In an article titled, "Five Reasons the Planet May Not Be Its Hottest Ever," sought to debunk the fact that global temperatures have increased over the past 30 years, as well as the notion that human activity has contributed to the warming. But in compiling a handful of contrarian arguments, Fox largely ignored climate science and botched basic facts; even one of the skeptics Fox cited said part of the article "does not make sense."
