Don't have a panel consisting of coal-loving ex-Governor, a Republican quasi-denier and an Ed Grimley clone saying "what's the use, China's gonna choke us with coal anyway."
Bill Maher was extremely concerned about climate change as he started his panel tonight. He mentioned the glacier breaking off and breaking the 400 ppm mark. He said Germany now has 75% renewables -- why can't we?
That was the high point. Ed Grimley (actually some guy named Ian Bremmer) said Germany was turning back to coal. GOP Shill/Pollster Kelley Anne Conaway grudgingly admitted that climate change was "half" human caused. (Note to Bill -- if you want a blond Republican woman, bring back Margaret Hoover. She's much smarter and has great lineage.) And Brian Schweitzer told us all about "clean coal" and fracking. If you had just watched that segment, you would have thought that fracking was definitely the energy equivalent of Pharrell's Happy. Thank goodness nobody brought up the XL pipeline.
Bill -- Your heart is in the right place on climate, but you need back-up. Even Bill Nye, ferchrissake. The only time you woke up was when Conaway started spouting the "scientists are in it for the grant money" nonsense. (a lot of "coin" as she put it). That woman is stone frignorant.
Fortunately, you had Kevin Nealon as a guest -- hilarious as usual. And the final New Rule daring the Republicans to impeach Obama was not bad.
But if I want to hear a bunch of chumps talking about fracking or the pipeline, I can DVR Morning Joe.
