Typical Of The Enviro-Weenies

Heidi Cullen, climatologist for The Weather Channel, has advocated decertifying any television meteorologist that expresses doubt that human activity is causing global warming. The end-all argument of the Left: think like us, or else! That's excellent.

What she advocates, on the most basic level, is extortion. She's saying either promote the agenda we want you to promote, of we will do harm to your career.

Actually, others have taken this ridiculous notion a step farther. Grist magazine writer David Roberts called for the Nuremberg-style trials for the "[expletives]" who were members of what he termed the global warming "denial industry." Interestingly, Cullen featured Roberts on an episode of her Weather Channel show "The Climate Code". She referred to him as an expert on ecology and energy issues.

As an aside... In December, Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.)and the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee announced the public release of the Senate Committee published booklet entitled "A Skeptic's Guide to Debunking Global Warming Alarmism. Hot & Cold Media Spin Cycle: A Challenge To Journalists who Cover Global Warming." The senator has challenged the media in a series of speeches and hearings to stop the unfounded hype.

"The American people are fed up with the media for promoting the idea that former Vice President Al Gore represents the scientific 'consensus' that SUV's and the modern American way of life have somehow created a 'climate emergency' that only United Nations bureaucrats and wealthy Hollywood liberals can solve."
