FOX Alert: O'Reilly Factor Producer Asks DeSmogBlog to Provide Best Arguments Against Global Warming

Look out, folks. Bill O’Reilly is about to talk about global warming again on the O’Reilly Factor.

Of course, he’s already reached his conclusion that “Nobody can control the climate but God.”  It’s just that he doesn’t have any data to back up his anti-science position. 

So he has one of his producers on the hunt today, apparently scrambling last minute, looking for “the very best arguments” to support climate change denial. Here’s the email DeSmogBlog received this morning:   

I feel for O’Reilly’s producers, honestly. It must be tough to face this “very tight deadline” problem when asked to provide factual support for a baseless, ideologically-motivated assumption.

Good luck, Robert and friends. It’s a difficult job making stuff up so your boss can maintain his politically driven network’s ignorance about climate science.  

Who knows, maybe he’ll surprise us this time. Stay tuned.
