The left-leaning media are so predictable, aren’t they? Regardless of the well-documented recent failings of the United Nations – the Oil-for-Food scandal, the sex scandals, you name it – America’s press just can’t bring themselves to question anything that comes out of this corrupt body.
Such was certainly the case in devout liberal Ellen Goodman’s Boston Globe piece Friday concerning global warming (emphasis mine throughout):
By every measure, the U N 's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change raises the level of alarm. The fact of global warming is "unequivocal." The certainty of the human role is now somewhere over 90 percent. Which is about as certain as scientists ever get.
Game, set, and match for Goodman. Yet, this wasn’t nearly as unequivocal as she got:
I would like to say we're at a point where global warming is impossible to deny. Let's just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers, though one denies the past and the other denies the present and future.
Actually, Ellen, there is indeed a huge difference between denying the past and denying the present and the future. As such, this analogy is absurd and offensive to say the least.
But Goodman’s insults didn’t end there. Not by a long shot:
Only 23 percent of college-educated Republicans believe the warming is due to humans, while 75 percent of college-educated Democrats believe it.
This great divide comes from the science-be-damned-and-debunked attitude of the Bush administration and its favorite media outlets.
Hmmm. So, we once again have a liberal media member claiming that Republicans can’t think for themselves, and that their opinions are all a function of “the Bush administration and its favorite media outlets,” which of course is code for Fox News.
Yet, like the rest of her ilk, Goodman ignores the likelihood that her opinions, and those of her fellow comrades, are a product of their favorite media outlets, and the views of politicians they revere.
Amazingly, this possibility was lost on Goodman even as she plugged a famous Democrat currently touring the world spreading the hysteria she and so many like her have bought into: “We are still waiting for the time when an election hinges on a candidate's plans for a changing climate.”
I bet you are, Ellen. Of course, I imagine even you wouldn’t jump on such a candidate’s bandwagon if he or she was pro-life, would you Ellen?
