smells like more stupid
The truth - it is like marbles in my mouth!
It seems as though stupid is the watchword in environmentalism this week. Via ThinkProgress:
Last night [03/03/08] on his CNN Headline News show, Glenn Beck exclaimed that he’d be covering the Heartland Institute’s global warming denier conference “like it was the second coming of Jesus himself.”
...Heartland’s sham conference has created quite a media stir. The New York Times has published two separate articles on the conference, and the Times’ John Tierney has written about it on his blog.
Other mainstream press outlets that have covered the conference: the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Daily News, the New York Sun, and Reuters.
In fact, getting the media to cover the real science behind climate change is sometimes more of a challenge. As the League of Conservation Voters recently pointed out, the leading Sunday political talk show hosts have dedicated 0.1 percent of their 2,275 questions to global warming.
Via the mighty mighty Cursor, the debunkers are, in fact, teh debunked.
And my God, Glenn Beck again. In a sane world, the closest this guy would've gotten to success in television would've been as Kooky Cook Cookie's wig wrangler. That motherfucker makes me wonder what I'm doing in grad school if he can get three hours on teevee every weekenight.
