Networks Embrace ‘Catastrophic’ Warnings of Latest IPCC Report | Media Research Center

The UN’s climate panel (IPCC) released its latest warning about "catastrophic" climate change on Sept. 27, garnering the frantic attention of all three broadcast networks that night. CBS even aired a claim about temperatures rising “more than 200 degrees."

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.”

Comment: They say the merger of "corporate" and "state" interests (business and politics) is fascism. So what is it when science and politics merge as obviously is the case here! Don't believe me? Then why do they call it the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change??? I know of more than a few folks who are calling this the newest religion and the so-called "scientists" the new priesthood. I think they may be on to something here! 

Not only is this another blatant case of journalistic malpractice but, it should also be the end of man's reliance on "science" to solve the world's ills!

  1. Not about 'science' and politics, but just politics supporting corp profiteering.

  2. For certain politics supporting corporate profiteering a.k.a. fascism is the major or most obvious indefensible example but, when you have jack-asses like AlGore who along with the PhD grade liars at the IPCC are pushing their pseudo-science "Anthropogenic-Global-Warming" religion (AGW) and making gazillions in the process, I have to take issue with your statement and say science is just as guilty. And that's not the only example of "Scientists Gone Wild" either. I'm sure there are other examples out there but, right off the top of my head that Eugenics "thingy" comes to mind too. That excuse for a scientific thought brought us the nightmare better known as the Holocaust!
