Man-made, man-produced carbon dioxide is filling up the atmosphere, heating it to unsustainable temperatures that will ultimately melt the polar ice caps and flood the world.
That's the latest fear-mongering "report" from the United Nations' International Panel on Climate Change. Only, none of that is true, as other climatologists and experts, including those at NASA, reported as early as a few years ago [See also: http://www.naturalnews.com].
Of course, none of this makes much difference to the alarmist mainstream media, most of which has bought into and reported verbatim disproven nonsense regarding nonexistent global warming crises that is still being espoused from people like former Vice President Al Gore, whose own predictions of melting polar caps have been seriously debunked [http://www.naturalnews.com].
The mainstream media is still breathlessly reporting the lie
In response to the latest junk science reporting by the IPCC, the big networks and many of the cable news outlets breathlessly reported the coming end of the world. Indeed, the Media Research Center (MRC) notes that CBS News even aired a claim that temps had risen "more than 200 degrees" (a figure not conducive to life on this planet).
Predictably, the evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC Sept. 27 repeated the IPCC's dire warnings without including any skeptics and without mentioning past failures such as their inability to accurately predict warming or sea level rise.
ABC's "World News with Diane Sawyer," NBC "Nightly News" and CBS "Evening News" all failed to include criticism of the IPCC with the exception of a swipe against "skeptics" on ABC. NBC continued to link weather events like Hurricane Sandy to climate change while CBS aired a statistic that one scientist called "meaningless."
The words "Big Warning" glaring on screen, ABC News said the report was "landmark," and that it came from "top scientists." Reporter Dan Harris went on to talk about events like superstorm Sandy, warning ominously that the "UN report says we will be seeing much more of these kinds of things in the coming decades as a result of climate change...." But of course, hasn't the IPCC been saying such things for years? Yes.
Harris acknowledged that others had differing viewpoints on the subject, but he immediately tore into them, mockingly saying that "skeptics have predictably accused the UN panel of being alarming, but Princeton climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer, who is on the panel, says this is a major wake-up call."
Yeah, about that Oppenheimer. He's been accused of engaging in activist junk science by other scientists, according to meteorologist Anthony Watts' website. Only, Harris didn't bother to mention that.
Changing the language to continue the false narrative
In addition to the tons of evidence that now exists debunking this stuff, there are other rather obvious things that should tip you off that the "global warming" crowd is full of it.
First off, why do they keep changing the language? For years the big scare was "global warming." When that wouldn't work, these alarmists changed it to "climate change." Now, it's morphing into "climate disruption." And all of this after the "global cooling" scares of the 1970s.
Further, since the hard data show that global warming hasn't really progressed over the past 15 years, wouldn't you think that guys like Gore and all the scientists and climatologists on the IPCC would be happy? But they're not; they're just as miserable and as dire as always. And their shtick hasn't changed one iota: "The world is still going to be swallowed up by the seas! I swear!"
Heck, if I were them, I would have come out and taken credit for being part of the global warning movement that saved the planet - but they're not doing that either. They are simply doubling down on the alarming nonsense.
It is painfully obvious now to all but the most ardent zealots that global warming/climate change is a sham. But you won't hear the mainstream media giving much coverage to the proof.
