FOX & FRIENDS PROMOTES GLOBAL WARMING DENIERS
You would think that in this day and age it is pretty much accepted fact that global warming is real and more than likely here to stay. So how then can Fox and its morning show, Fox and Friends, justify its endorsement of a so-called “Environmental Conference”, currently taking place in New York City, which among other things, alleges that Global Warming is bogus?
Can Roger Ailes and the wizards at Fox really believe that virtually all of the data collected to date by the crème of the world’s scientific community – data, which proves beyond a doubt the veracity of the Global Warming argument - is inaccurate?
Or is their endorsement of the Global Warming deniers more of a cynical last-ditch effort to provide cover for loyalist old- line corporations, organizations for which becoming environmentally compliant - if it is in fact possible - would require massive expenditures of time and money, than it is representative of any real belief system?
Hopefully, their support of the Global Warming deniers is just the boys and the girls at Fox’s way of showing their support for their and their boss, Rupert Murdock’s, friends in the corporate community, and not the result of the loss of any of their remaining sanity and reason. But then, you never really know.
The good news is that finally it appears that Corporate America has seen the writing on the wall and is in full panic mode with the realization that their days of unfettered, unregulated excess are over. The presidential election is upon us. America is demanding change, radical change from the ways and the days of the Bush administration. Respect for the environment, the giver of all life, is a large part of that change, something which many of these companies would like to postpone, if not derail entirely.
With a little luck, they will not get their way. Though I do not like to see anyone loose money, I am having a hard time getting worked up over the plight of these corporations. Had they begun the changes back when they should have, the cost to them would have been manageable. The fact that they didn’t is their and their stockholders problem.
