Remember when global warming was a gigantic, apocalyptic danger that was going to destroy the world and that no true scientist would deny was such a thing?
We don’t either. Indeed, after two successive scandals, more financial conflicts of interest than can be properly counted, and “An Inconvenient Truth” being ruled inaccurate by a UK Court, it’s starting to become a mystery how this doomsday cult-style prophecy attracted the kind of credibility it did.
But unfortunately, not everyone appears to have caught on that it’s old news. To that end, Canada apparently is still being besieged by the global warming lobby, especially in the media. Which makes this epic rant from Canadian conservative pundit Ezra Levant all the more satisfying to hear:http://www.theblaze.com/stories/any-other-multi-billion-dollar-industry-would-be-treated-cynically-by-reporters-canadian-pundit-ezra-levant-rips-global-warming-lobby/
Highlights from the lengthy deconstruction follow, courtesy of Fox Nation:
Most journalists who are most normally the most skeptical people in the room turn into obedient stenographers when faced with global warming salesmen. Any other multi-billion dollar industry would be treated cynically by reporters, not so the Global Warming industry or its high living jet setting tycoons. Journalists become fanboys! Yeah, no thanks. I’m not that obedient. Political correctness accounts for some of this, I mean it’s still fashionable in elite circles to follow the global warming fad and journalism professors are usually left wing.[...]
Well, count me with the skeptics on the inside. There is no ideology or religion that should be above criticism or debate including global warming. Look I don’t care what Ed Stelmach says. The debate is not over.No, no it isn’t. And the global warming crowd should be thankful for that, because right now, the debate is not going their way.
