Not to anyone’s surprise, the liberal media happily ran with the “Hurricane Irene = Global Warming” theme this week:
1. From The Daily Beast, “Irene’s got a middle name, and it’s Global Warming.”
2. From Climate Central, “is this weather disaster caused by climate change?”
3. From the NY Times, “are hurricanes getting worse because of human-induced climate change?”
And finally, on a different note, from the climate expert Al Gore, who this week compared the struggle against climate skeptics to the fight against racism during the civil rights movement.
When racist comments would come up in the course of conversations, “There came a time when people said, ‘Hey man, why do you talk that way? That’s wrong, I don’t go for that, so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.'”
So, if you don’t believe in “man-made global warming,” you are no different than those in the sixties that were trying to hang on to segregation and racism. Wow. I’d say that we are only skeptical because of hacks like Al Gore and his liberal “scientists” who have been caught fabricating data to get the results that support the conclusions they are looking for.
