Hype and change

Global warming alarmists worry that word's not getting out

  • Follow Editorials

Environmental journalists recently gathered to discuss, in part, whether the media have been “under-reporting and downplaying the seriousness of the threats of global warming.”

Really? They’ve got to be kidding. What part of “Flat Earth Society” – the usual invective hurled at global warming skeptics – do they think we don’t understand?

They’ve predicted coastal destruction, bigger and more frequent hurricanes, zero polar ice by 2013 – and on and on and on.

To suggest the media have downplayed the global warming threat is laughable.

The truth is quite the opposite: It isn’t the Earth that’s becoming overheated so much as the rhetoric.

Besides, the truth is, global warming alarmists don’t want a debate. Environmental groups even wrote to the heads of news networks earlier this year to complain that global warming skeptics were being given too much deference.

Silencing dissent and doubt is no way to win an argument or win over converts.

We encourage man-made global warming
adherents to cool down their rhetoric, acknowledge the evidence to the contrary and simply go about refuting it.

Calmly, civilly, confidently and with facts.

Kind of like a scientist does.

Impeding doom or not the

Impeding doom or not the President plan isn't an environmental solution it is a political one that does nothing to address a real impending disaster. I mean think about it. Oh no the sky is falling-all hell is going to break lose with more natural disasters, drought, flooding, global extinction of many species, mankind and most life may cease to exist, and we get Cap and Trade. I mean really? Really? No really? You mean really? Reminds me of sitting under my desk in the 60's waiting for Cuba to blow me to nuclear hell. That desk was some fortress eh. Makes you wonder if we were attacked by nuclear bombs would Obama in kind use our nuclear arsenal-my bet he would never ever fire a nuclear warhead even if it meant nuclear annihilation of America. Because of his ideology, countries come and go, and our time was up in his mind and is "fair". He is dedicated to eliminating our nuclear arsenal so no way he would ever use one under any circumstance is my bet from his past actions and comments. Other countries know despite our arsenal we aren't a nuclear threat. Just a matter of a few years before the US and Israel will be attacked with nuclear warheads by muslim nations like Iran, and they may join up with North Korea too just to rid the world of US. We are defenseless because of Obama who like Nero playing his fiddle to watch Rome burn, he would play golf and watch America burn. That way he could rebuild America as Nero Rome to get his fundamental change-by hook or crook.

Good to hear you ran out of

Good to hear you ran out of things to say t3bledsoe. Now it's time for you to research the University of East Anglia scandal and the NOAA findings of the increase in polar ice. Also, you might look at the temperature data for the past 15 years that shows no warming. Not propaganda but facts.

Bledsoe, but if you want to debate, you need to get your facts straight.
