ABC's John Stossel's Embarrassing Global Warming Rhetoric

ABC's John Stossel's Embarrassing Global Warming Rhetoric
on

No, Stossel shouldn’t be embarrassed, he’s well past that point. ABC News should be though, over Stossel’s climate change denial piece set to air tonight. 

Stossel writes:

But is it a crisis? The globe is warming, but is it really all our fault? And is it true the debate is over? No. What you think you know may not be so.”

Seriously, I honestly thought we were moving on, but I guess there’s still a few media left with their heads planted firmly in the sand. Even the “experts” Stossel uses for his piece are the same handful of deniers that anyone looking to shock and provoke are prone to air. 

Here’s background information in Stossel’s tired line-up:

Roy “Interfaith Science Advisor” Spencer

John “just use air conditioning” Christy

“Infectious” Paul Reiter

Tim “energy lobby” Ball 

Here’s a challenge, Stossel, ask any of your “experts” to produce their peer-reviewed research disproving in any way the theory of human-induced climate change.
