tyler — To see the latest chapter in our U.S. cultural war, you may not have to look as far as your local TV weather person.
This was brought to my attention today. The left has been pushing for the sky is falling climate change for years.
Recently, they've hit a road block with controversy about faulty data or accusations of some climate scientist reportedly doing everything they can to point to Mother Earth having a FEVER.
Now, a new progressive website is outing weather people who don't agree with far-left thinking.
"Thinkprogress.org is "outing TV weather folks who have gone on record saying pish-posh to the whole idea of global warming.
They put the weather person's statements about why they won't get on board under the heading "zombie quotes."
Another website is trying to do the same thing. It's called "wattsupwiththat."
It states a new campaign, Forecast the Facts (www.forecastthefacts.org ), launches Sunday to pressure TV meteorologists to inform their viewers about climate change. The launch coincides with the kick-off of the American Meteorological Society's (AMS) annual meeting in New Orleans, LA.
"This is an important moment in the history of the AMS," said Daniel Souweine, the campaign's director. "It's well known that large numbers of meteorologists are climate change deniers. It's essential that the AMS Council resist pressure from these deniers and pass the strong statement currently under consideration."
How is this for free thought and freedom of speech and ideas?
We'll just strong arm whomever disagrees with us.
It won't work.
I know some of these folks they "out" as naysayers and they are not backing down.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
