Liberals at NPR are still at it, but they're so smug and arrogant that they can't see that their stupid f'ing argument works in reverse. A climate change "denier" could say that BELIEVING in climate change is tantamount to believing Obama wasn't born in the U.S. or that the Earth is flat. Are you guys really this goony?
And this whole "all educated scientists accept that climate change as fact" is full of crap. First, isn't it an oxymoron to call scientists "educated"? Aren't all scientists, by definition, educated? Secondly, there are THOUSANDS--REPEAT--THOUSANDS of "educated" scientists who DO NOT BELIEVE THIS BULLSHIT. It's all politics, plain and simple. Yes, climate change that occurs on Mother Nature's calendar is real. Anthropogenic global warming IS NOT REAL. It never was real.
"We're not covering the birthers. We are not covering them. There's a whole movement within the conservative group about questioning something that Obama has said as fact, 'I was born in Hawaii, when it was the United States.' The group that questions this, some of whom are commentators...I don't know any who are Democrats, but they are primarily conservative commentators and people who follow them question if Obama is [a citizen]," she further explains.
"I think the challenge in our society now is that we are questioning facts. It's not opinions we are debating. I mean, what are the facts? Is the world flat? Is that the next question we're going to debate?" Ms. Liley wonders.
Mr. Schiller chimes in later saying, "The main point here is that it is not our responsibility to present the opinion of a non-scientist through our science desk. All educated scientists accept that climate change as fact. On the political side, however, where it is not accepted as fact, and the fact that debate is happening is news and it's really important news. And our point of view requires that we cover that debate, if for no other reason than to have Americans understand there are still people who believe that it is not fact."
