      Hannity: Global warming "doesn't exist"


      Say that to the island-nation of The Maldives, Tragedy Hannity. According to Jon Stewart's book Earth, The Maldives are now underwater.

      Should be some nice snorkeling trips in the hotel lobbies, though.

      ;)

      Hannity is getting paid to lie about the difference between climate and weather.

      It is too bad he failed to understand the concepts taught in his high school science class. His few fans are right there with him.

      He does not seem to worry about his grandchildren. He must be confident that Social Darwinism will allow his offspring to survive on a tall mountain.

      Here is the mathematical equation that proves Fox News Corp. is not news, and that Hannity is a paid buffoon:

      lim ƒ (FNC) = infotainment
      IQ → 0

      (The limit of, as a person’s IQ gets closer to zero, the more they expect Fox News Corp. infotainment is fact)

      Do you really want to leave the survival of your offspring in the hands of insatiable greed and silly fools who do not know the difference between climate and weather?

      This is, according to these two, a media story?

      That's really beyond stupid.

      The issue is science, Sean and Brent, not PR. It's stunning to me sometimes how either willfully delusional or deeply cynical guys like this can be.

      Hannity is wrong, but I am also a member of the camp that there is little to be done in the way of prevention and everything to be done in preparing for adaptation.

      If you don't think so, go to pg. 63 of the following report and look at the projected fossil fuel consumption increases.
      http://www.dni.gov/nic/PDF_2025/2025_Global_Trends_Final_Report.pdf
      The DOE's EAIA has similar trend reports for the US as well.

      The developing nations are not going to walk away from fossil - it's the fastest road to development, just as it was for us.

      Most of the wingnut world accepts the reality of global warming but they say that humans have nothing to do with it so we shouldn't worry about it. But Hannity--and Rush too--say that this is all a complete hoax and that global warning isn't happening. It's a plot that 99% of all scientists are a part of. So I guess all those temperature extremes, melting glaciers and such around the world are just coincidences. (Maybe we big bad liberals are sneaking up to the arctic with flamethrowers to melt the ice as part of our insideous plot to create a world dictatorship!) >GASP<
      What irritates me the most about morons like Hannity is that they are more concerned with saving big business a few bucks rather than trying to save our enviroment. Does he want his kids growing up in an enviroment that is collapsing? If there is a Hell I hope he goes down to the furthest depths of it.

        Some of them seem to go back and forth between " nothing we can do" and "hoax", depending on what day it is.

        There have been scientific debates throughout history. Some of these involve Side A (supported by the vast majority of the science) and Side B ( supported by a lot of "We don't know", and constantly caught in lies and misinformation).

        I can't think of any historical examples where it turned out that Side B was right. As much as the Denial Cultists like to meander off into piles of obscure and meaningless "dissent" presented in handy links, the pattern of history say a lot more to me.

          More accurately, they go back and forth depending on the seasons.

          WINTER MONTHS:
          constant citing of local severe weather reports = "hoax"
          ALL OTHER TIMES: climate change hardly mentioned, if at all = "nothing we can do"

      Sean Hannity, noted climate scientist, says that... No? He's not?

      Okay.

      Sean Hannity, trained meteorologist, says that... No? He's not?

      Hmm.

      Sean Hannity, college dropout, has uttered a completely worthless opinion on a science with which he is not familiar, and in which he has had no training.

      Better.

      I can't tell you how relieved I am to hear a respected figure on the teevee, who must be an expert on climatology and geology (otherwise why would he speak about such complex matters with such confidence and certainty) that global warming isn't real. Oh wait, someone's telling me through my imaginary earpiece that Hannity is actually just another one of many too-far-right undereducated "journatainer" propagandist on the Fox Newspeak Channel.

      Never mind.

      Hannity: Global warming "doesn't exist"



      Thank you, Dr. Hannity, D. in C&B {doctorate in construction and bartending}

      Now, for some actual scientists:

      2009 was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, a new NASA analysis of global surface temperature shows. The analysis, conducted by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, also shows that in the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest year since modern records began in 1880.


      Global warming "doesn't exist", Sean?

      Funny -- that's not what your boss says.

      Or Pat Robertson.

      Or the Pentagon.

      But, what do they know -- they're just a bunch of "libs" anyway . . .

        you better get down here to Australia as well - changed weather patterns are repeatedly flooding parts of the country other parts haven't seen decent rain in 15yrs

        oh & in response to the early discussion I'd rather live in a world with Sustainable Development & it's associated supposed consequences than the one envisaged by Hannity, Glenn Beck, galileonardo & others but then I live in what they call a 'socialist country' (LOL), how did that minimal regulation of financial markets work out for ya?
