The level of ignorance being promoted on Fox News is really astounding. This week on Fox and Friends regulars Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and guest Stuart Varney shared a few of their ignorant notions about Climate Change with their viewers.
Fox and Friends: Global Warming is Over
By News Hounds, Fri, October 19, 2012
Brian Kilmeade angrily asked.
“The Obama administration has spent almost $60 billion to combat global warming and how’s that going?”
Steve Doocy said enthusiastically, “Talk about an inconvenient truth Brian. New research shows global warming actually ended 16 years ago. So why are we spending all that money?”Of course this is just flat out wrong. NOAA
Guest Stuart Varney called the Meteorological Office “prestigious.” He added, “They’re the keeper of the climate statistics for the British, that’s for sure.
They say, look, in the last 16 years, the temperature of the planet has not gone up at all.’Contrary to all the predictions; there has been no global warming for the past 16 years. Period, nothing, nada, nothing, rien, nothing, not a single degree up in the global temperature.”
This reminded me of the SNL spoof of Fox and Friends from earlier this year.
I LOVED the multitude of corrections that scroll down at the end.
Fox and Friends: the place to go for ignorant notions.
