I am adding this little video as a time capsule to reflect on in the future for entertainment purposes. I have a regular discussion with an off-the-charts- Konservative friend who sounds like a Limbaugh talking point broken record. I have told him many times that the only thing Rush will be remembered as in 50 years is "the guy who lied continuously about global warming". I ask my friend why he doesn't believe that mankind is causing global warming, but he can't give an answer. He doesn't understand the first thing about the issue. He merely assumes that since Rush is so certain that it is a hoax, then there must therefore be a good reason for him to believe so. No need to look at the data. I tell him that 2+2=4 and he says that this is just my opinion. I say, no really it does, I know it does, and he says -well, I just disagree.
If you know anything at all about this issue, you will find this video strikingly dumb. If you aren't absolutely bowled over by the sheer magnitude of stupidity involved with these statements, you can find each of his talking points refuted here by the actual facts- 12 global warming myths.
These 12 myths are repeated again and again and again by talk radio misinformationists and disinformers. They can never be bothered by the facts. They never provide the entire story. Their entire case is half-truths, distortions and outright lies. They simply rest assured that the outright lazy ignorance of their audience will carry the day.
Today I heard Hush Bimbo say something true (no really). He was talking about how James Hansen of Nasa was desiring to bring oil companies to justice who were knowingly misinforming the public. Bimbo took the blame, and said that he was in fact mostly to blame for misleading the public on the issue, not the oil companies. "I hope I get subpoenaed" he said. Scooter Libby crossed my mind.
