Ralph Nader said Tuesday conservative talk radio hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are part of a well-organized counter-scientific ignorance movement designed to prevent people from believing in the theory of manmade global warming.
Sadly, this was said to a bunch of impressionable students at the College of New Jersey (video follows with transcript and commentary):
STUDENT QUESTIONER AMANDA REDDINGTON: Over like a hundred countries recognize global warming and the negative effect people have on the environment. Do you, what’s your opinion on like America’s slow acceptance of this reality?
RALPH NADER: It’s partly because there’s been a well-organized counter-scientific movement, pseudo-scientific attack. Clinton never pushed it, and Bush opposed it withdrew from it, right? Obama’s not pushing it. So, most of the environmental groups when they hear every day Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, you know, this huge ignorance movement going on. Who’s to counteract Limbaugh, right? You don’t get on if you offend corporate advertising.
REDDINGTON: Okay, thank you.
NADER: But they’ll learn as soon as things start melting.
NADER: The beaches and all that. They’ll learn. Look at Alaska.
Al Gore and his green disciples have spent billions of dollars in recent years trying to convince the American people that this myth is real. They have as their minions virtually every media outlet in the nation with the exception of Fox News, conservative talk show hosts, right-wing bloggers, and a handful of publications.
Yet, the reason the citizenry aren't buying into the fable hook, line and sinker is because of people like Limbaugh and Hannity.
It really boggles the mind how people like this can be at all taken seriously.
