Dems Demand More MSM Climate Propaganda

From the National Journal:

Democrats Plan to Pressure TV Networks Into Covering Climate Change

Sens. Sanders and Schatz are gathering colleagues’ signatures on a letter asserting that the shows are ignoring global warming

By Ben Geman | January 14, 2014

Senate Democrats pledging to get more aggressive on climate change will soon pressure the major TV networks to give the topic far greater attention on the Sunday talking-head shows.

We realize it’s hopelessly naïve to even mention it, but don’t we have a Constitution that is supposed to prevent the federal government from telling our news media what they can and can’t say? Of course, the news media won’t complain about being told what to say. Not by Democrats, anyway.

Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, are gathering colleagues’ signatures on a letter to the networks asserting that they’re ignoring global warming.

Bernie Sanders is an avowed socialist/communist. How can anyone doubt that global warming hoax is nothing more than a frontal assault on capitalism and the industrial revolution? 

"It is beyond my comprehension that you have ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox, that their Sunday shows have discussed climate change in 2012, collectively, for all of eight minutes," Sanders said, citing analysis by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America.

Media Matters? Oh, yeah, they are a reliable source for analysis.

Sanders mentioned the letter during a press conference with most other members of Senate Democrats’ new, 19-member Climate Action Task Force, and he elaborated on it in a brief interview afterward…

"What [the networks] are saying is, climate change is a non-important issue, it is an irrelevant issue, and yet the scientific community tells us that it is the greatest crisis facing this planet," [Sanders] said.

Democratic members of the new task force say they’ll embark on a wide array of activities to raise the visibility of climate change.

Members’ goals include battling GOP efforts to block federal carbon emissions standards for power plants, and, longer term, creating political space for major climate legislation that’s currently going nowhere in Congress.

Because extending federal unemployment benefits again, raising the federal minimum wage and giving amnesty to untold millions of illegal aliens isn’t enough to destroy the economy. We have to add climate change nonsense.

      I have a theory that over time, this whole global climate change BS is gonna lose any amount of energy it has due to many reasons.

      One, the issues faced by Americans when the economy crashes and burns will put AGW so far in the back seat that it’ll be stuck behind last year’s gum and lost change.

      Two, that World affairs will be so horrendously upset by the sand-people that nobody will even remotely care about it.

      Three, and perhaps the most likely, it’ll just have run its course like all scams do. The shell game, the card trick, all scams lose their suckers eventually. And it’s on track to do so because it’s become so widely and loudly broadcast that more and more people are on to it. The scam can’t work if everyone’s wise to it and its operatives.

      Al Gore was curiously silent during “The Great Freeze” of two weeks ago. There were lame attempts to label the “Polar Vortex” as an accomplice of AGW but articles quickly surfaced from the 70’s showing that the media “experts” touted it as evidence of Global Cooling; a harbinger the next soon-to-come ice age. And, the way to stave it off was curiously the same as how to stave off AGW….by spending more of the people’s money.

      So….over time, people are getting smarter on the scam. And the more they screech and cry, the more people turn and walk away. If, for no other reason than they have better things to do. The national socialists have truly pulled out all the stops on it and probably have gotten as much money as they’re gonna get now that the cat is out of the bag.

      It’s a lie. We know it’s a lie. Oh, they will continue to foment anger at us “deniers” but still submit and shrug my shoulders and say, “Meh, Earth may be getting warmer, but it’s not because I burn gasoline or that we burn coal that’s the cause of it”. During WWII and after when factories the world over were spewing unfiltered, uncleaned exhaust into the atmosphere and so forth, was it getting warmer or cooler?

      And what of the argument that one single volcano puts out more “greenhouse” gasses in an hour than man has since he started shoveling coal? Hmmmm? Why doesn’t the planet turn into an oven whenever Mt Pinatubo goes kablooie?

      As always, it’s not what the scammers say or show us, it’s what they don’t say and what they hide that are so revealing.

      Hockey stick graph. Phooey and “no soup for you!”

    I wonder if obama lent these two clowns his pen and phone, just to try them out.

    If media is forced by a political party to promote a lie as being truth, they are guilty of promoting a false hood on the part of both the political party and the media. Climate does change. It does not change because of man. Core samples of Earth, trees, glacier and polar ice caps show that this is true. There have been periods of higher CO2 levels and higher CO levels as well as NO2 levels.
    There have also been periods of extreme cold and periods of extreme heat (hotter and colder than what we are experiencing today). Man was not a factor in those times. One such time was after the area known as Yellowstone National Park blew its top. Another was Krakatoa. Volcanic activity contributes much to the atmosphere’s effect on climate and weather. Mt. St. Helens put more into the atmosphere (and it really wasn’t as big as many other volcanoes have been) than all the pollution that man has, since man first walked the earth.
