MSM laughs at Perry on Climate Change

On Morn­ing Joe today the Panel laughed at Rick Perry’s state­ments on Cli­mate Change

I think we’re see­ing almost weekly, or even daily, sci­en­tists that are com­ing for­ward and ques­tion­ing the orig­i­nal idea that man­made global warm­ing is what is caus­ing the cli­mate to change,” the Texas gov­er­nor said on the first stop of a two-​day trip to the first-​in-​the-​nation pri­mary state.

He said some want bil­lions or tril­lions of tax­payer dol­lars spent to address the issue, but he added: “I don’t think from my per­spec­tive that I want to be engaged in spend­ing that much money on still a sci­en­tific the­ory that has not been proven and from my per­spec­tive is more and more being put into question.”


The joined lefty blogs from Think progress to Lit­tle Green Foot­balls who are jump­ing all over this statement

Cli­mate skep­tics love Perry, and this kind of rhetoric is why. While Mitt Rom­ney is out and about on the cam­paign trail agree­ing with the over­whelm­ing sci­en­tific sta­tus quo on the topic, Perry appears poised to take up a view of cli­mate change on the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign trail that would be right at home in a Sen. James Inhofe (R-​OK) floor speech.

Firedoglake’s state­ments are par­tic­u­larly ironic as they hit Perry’s sci­ence grades (with­out com­par­ing them to Obama’s I won­der why)

In a way this makes sense from Perry’s point of view. As he got pretty much D’s and C’s in sci­ence, mean­ing the sci­en­tists were bet­ter at sci­ence than he was, which is not sur­pris­ing. But he also got the same grades in polit­i­cal sci­ence, eco­nom­ics and his­tory. So the sci­en­tists were bet­ter at that too. But hey, he’s a moronic Repub­li­can Gov­er­nor from Texas, so if he some­how mala­props his way into the White House he can use Bush’s old lines about who the Pres­i­dent is when he gets sur­rounded by “egg heads” and their 3.0 and bet­ter GPAs.

On Morn­ing Joe they con­trasted him to Rom­ney on this, favor­ing Rom­ney. This is no sur­prise as Ed Mor­ris­sey points out

His posi­tion on AGW hardly comes as a sur­prise, but it does draw a big con­trast with Rom­ney. Rom­ney angered con­ser­v­a­tives in June by declar­ing his belief in AGW, and then refus­ing to repu­di­ate it a few days later. His promise not to push any poli­cies address­ing it didn’t exactly fill the Right with con­fi­dence, either.

The prob­lem for the MSM here is that while they totally ignored the Cli­mate Change Scan­dals of last year, Rush Lim­baugh, Fox and blogs did not. I have 20 posts tagged “Cli­mate­gate” and if you do a search at Instapun­dit for “cli­mate­gate” and you will find pages of links.

On you tube yow will find videos like this:

And unlike the MSM we’ve also seen sto­ries like this:

Back on April 11th, Gavin Atkins of Asian Cor­re­spon­dent asked this sim­ple ques­tion: What hap­pened to the cli­mate refugees?

It is a valid ques­tion, and he backs it up with cen­sus numbers

The best exam­ple is at Direc­tor Blue’s site as he talks about both the Boston Globe and the Hous­ton Chron­i­cle being edu­cated by their com­men­ta­tors on the story they would not cover.

Or lets put in another way. Any per­son who reads this post or watches this episode of Ed Driscoll’s Sil­i­con Graf­fiti

…is more informed on the issue than any­one who gets their news solely from MSNBC or Morn­ing Joe

Bot­tom line because the Pauline Kaels of the MSM refused to look at this story (as they have ignored the Gun­walker scan­dal) mil­lions of Amer­i­cans are ahead of them on the curve. The pan­elists on Morn­ing Joe are laugh­ing at Rick Perry now but in 2012 will they be say­ing: “I don’t know how Richard Perry could have won. I don’t know any­body who voted for him.”

Update: As Gavin Atkins gives a brief his­tory of left­ist hys­te­ria on Cli­mate Change the Wash­ing­ton Post Chal­lenges Perry on his cli­mate change stuff while pooh poohing the scan­dal that they gave short shift to in the first place.

On Morning Joe today the Panel laughed at Rick Perry’s statements on Climate Change

“I think we’re seeing almost weekly, or even daily, scientists that are coming forward and questioning the original idea that manmade global warming is what is causing the climate to change,” the Texas governor said on the first stop of a two-day trip to the first-in-the-nation primary state.

He said some want billions or trillions of taxpayer dollars spent to address the issue, but he added: “I don’t think from my perspective that I want to be engaged in spending that much money on still a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into question.”


The joined lefty blogs from Think progress to Little Green Footballs who are jumping all over this statement

Climate skeptics love Perry, and this kind of rhetoric is why. While Mitt Romney is out and about on the campaign trail agreeing with the overwhelming scientific status quo on the topic, Perry appears poised to take up a view of climate change on the presidential campaign trail that would be right at home in a Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) floor speech.

Firedoglake’s statements are particularly ironic as they hit Perry’s science grades (without comparing them to Obama’s I wonder why)

In a way this makes sense from Perry’s point of view. As he got pretty much D’s and C’s in science, meaning the scientists were better at science than he was, which is not surprising. But he also got the same grades in political science, economics and history. So the scientists were better at that too. But hey, he’s a moronic Republican Governor from Texas, so if he somehow malaprops his way into the White House he can use Bush’s old lines about who the President is when he gets surrounded by “egg heads” and their 3.0 and better GPAs.

On Morning Joe they contrasted him to Romney on this, favoring Romney. This is no surprise as Ed Morrissey points out

His position on AGW hardly comes as a surprise, but it does draw a big contrast with Romney. Romney angered conservatives in June by declaring his belief in AGW, and then refusing to repudiate it a few days later. His promise not to push any policies addressing it didn’t exactly fill the Right with confidence, either.

The problem for the MSM here is that while they totally ignored the Climate Change Scandals of last year, Rush Limbaugh, Fox and blogs did not. I have 20 posts tagged “Climategate” and if you do a search at Instapundit for “climategate” and you will find pages of links.

Back on April 11th, Gavin Atkins of Asian Correspondent asked this simple question: What happened to the climate refugees?

It is a valid question, and he backs it up with census numbers

The best example is at Director Blue’s site as he talks about both the Boston Globe and the Houston Chronicle being educated by their commentators on the story they would not cover.

Or lets put in another way. Any person who reads this post or watches this episode of Ed Driscoll’s Silicon Graffiti

…is more informed on the issue than anyone who gets their news solely from MSNBC or Morning Joe

Bottom line because the Pauline Kaels of the MSM refused to look at this story (as they have ignored the Gunwalker scandal) millions of Americans are ahead of them on the curve. The panelists on Morning Joe are laughing at Rick Perry now but in 2012 will they be saying: “I don’t know how Richard Perry could have won. I don’t know anybody who voted for him.”

Update: As Gavin Atkins gives a brief history of leftist hysteria on Climate Change the Washington Post Challenges Perry on his climate change stuff while pooh poohing the scandal that they gave short shift to in the first place.
