We’ve all thought it, and many of us have said it: but CNN’s Bill Weir phrased it perfectly in response to an article that attempted to use the day’s weather as an example of why climate change is not happening. The article, “Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore’s Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings,” was aggregated from the Washington Times and points out that when the EPA’s climate hearings began…it was a little cooler than usual….at 9 a.m.
The plan was to tout the EPA’s emissions proposal as a solution for hot weather brought on by global warming, but when the hearings began at 9 a.m. Wednesday in Denver, the temperature was a chilly 58 degrees. Plus, it was raining.
The other cities hosting the hearings Wednesday were also hit by cooler-than-usual temperatures. The high in Atlanta was forecast at 82 degrees, while it was a pleasant 70 degrees in Washington, D.C., when the hearings began at 9 a.m.
Upon reading this, you might be wondering what FOX is smoking–then you may remember that FOX has actually gone to court to defend its right to lie and distort the news. Weir just shot back at FOX’s idiotic tweet of the article:
Naturally, a bunch of willfully ignorant f*cksticks weighed in:
Unfortunately, his conscience got the best of him, and he apologized. It was, after all, like beating a really stupid puppy with a brick.
