‘Inconvenient Truth’ Producer Laurie David Attacks Rush Limbaugh

April 13th, 2007 11:59 AM

The arrogance of Hollywood liberal elites is truly astounding, folks.

After embarrassing herself on CNBC Tuesday, and following it up with an absurd rebuttal Thursday, the producer of Al Gore’s global warming schlockumentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” Laurie David, went for a dubious hat-trick by taking on talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

I kid you not.

In what was presented as a letter to El Rushbo at the Huffington Post, David attacked Limbaugh for -- get this! -- his lack of knowledge concerning global warming (emphasis added throughout, h/t NB member Sick-n-Tired):

I don't even know where to begin with this one, but I will start by saying how embarrassed I am for you. It shocks me that someone with your stature could know so little about global warming.

What chutzpah, huh? David then made the typical liberal point about all climate events – heat, cold, rain, snow, ice, thaws, etc. – being related to global warming:

First off, thanks for making the case for us. The things you mention like worse snowstorms and a chaotic start to baseball season are all symptoms of global causes extreme weather in BOTH directions. For example, the reason the blizzards are warming.

Yep. Blizzards happen because the earth is warming. And this woman is questioning Limbaugh's intellectual capacity.

Once again missing the delicious hypocrisy in her statements, David continued by suggesting that Limbaugh should listen to baseball players’ opinions on this issue rather than the multitudes of skeptical scientists that are experts in the field:

Moreover, for someone who seems to follow sports so closely, I thought you may have seen the recent issue of Sports Illustrated that featured global warming on the cover. Guess not, but if you are interested in actually learning what global warming is doing to sports go to stopglobalwarming.org to see what actual athletes like Reggie Bush, Steve Nash and Chase Utley have to say about why they are taking global warming seriously.

Seriously, folks, you can’t make this stuff up.
