Fox News vs. Global Warming

No, Fox News is not combating Global Warming (that really would be news).  But, here’s a video: Fox Attacks the Environment.  Some quotes from their news programing:

“The warming is due to the Sun!”

“A total hoax!”

“An outrageous lie.”

“There is no agreement is that the warming we’ve seen is due to Man”

There are so many things wrong with these people who oppose the idea of global warming that it’s difficult to know where to begin.  The biggest issues to me:

  • None of these opinions are based on any scientific knowledge or evidence.  In fact, most lack any rational thought or logic.
  • Many of the attacks are used to cast doubt or suspicion.  From criticizing Al Gore’s haircut to talking about some hidden agenda that he might have, these statements simple help people become indignant for no reason.

There are a lot of questions I’d like to have answered.  For example, what will these same people say once it completely obvious that this is a legitimate problem?  And, what exactly are the questionable motivations?  Does Al Gore stand to make a ton of money by claiming that there’s a global environmental issue that must be addressed?  Finally, why is the United States one of the only nations in the world that has opposed, rejected, or failed to participate in major environmental concerns?  Apparently, those issues aren’t quite as relevant as “The Goracle’s” haircut.  Ugh…

    Yeah, I’ve noticed that myself. It seems Fox news has a vendetta against the idea of global warming. Well, I shouldnt speak for all of fox news but certainly sean hanity and maybe even bill O-reilly. The issue isn’t global warming, i suspect, the issue is Al Gore amd and therefore people like Hanity take the opposite position from the Liberals everytime.
