PALIN RIPS GIBSON FOR LYING ABOUT
Posted by PrestoPundit on 09/12/2008
PALIN to GIBSON: I think you are a cynic because show me where I have ever said
that there’s absolute proof that nothing that man has ever conducted or
engaged in has had any affect, or no affect, on climate change.
Gibson seems to have prepped for this interview by sitting down to read the leftist blogs — many of Gibson’s questions look to be taken directly from the gross distortions of Palin’s actual words published at such lefty sites as the Huffington Post, TPM, the Democrat Underground and the Daily Kos. Perhaps that is where Gibson’s producers did their interview prep for Gibson, or perhaps that is where Gibson himself gets his news. Whichever may be the case, it’s a disgrace.
The facts are that Palin is not a “global warming denier” and the subtle — and fully sientific — distinction she has made simply leaves room for the well founded view that causes other than man-generated CO2 may be contributers to global warming. In fact, the best science out there suggests that causes other than man-made CO2 are a far better fit to the data we have. And, in fact, the CO2 theory in very dramatic ways simply doesn’t fit the data. In other words, it’s a failed theory, if a very lucrative one for many climate “scientists” (e.g. computer modelers playing “science” on their desktop).
And it’s worth reminding everyone that the best science right now says we have been seeing global cooling for going on a decade.
So don’t trust the morons in the MSM on this. Do you own research. By depending on yourself, and not the hacks in the press, are much more likely to get close to the truth on topics like this. If you aren’t ready to do the work, then stop pretending you know anything on the topic. Because if your “knowledge” comes from Charlie Gibson and the rest of the MSM hacks, you really can’t say you know anything other than the conventional PC raving of a herd of script reading mediocities.
