Copenhagen Climate Change Debate:Armagedon
I was running on the treadmill watching CNN on Sunday. They had one of their eloquent sounding british journalists deliver the kind of story you see in the movies when the hopeful reporter profiles the heroes that will save the planet from the asteroid that is set to hit the earth. What she left out of her report is that their is now evidence that the asteroid will miss the earth by thousands of miles and that no human activity can actually affect the course of the asteroid. What responsible journalist would fail to put the perspective that #1, climate change is merely a concensus #2, that concensus is based on information that was knowingly skewed.
Now, this was all enough to make me sick to my stomach, but the part of the actual story that made me laugh out loud was when the reporter invoked the word debate. What debate is actually going to take place in Copenhagen. Are they going to allow parties that disagree with man-made climate change to present their findings. You know the answer is no.
