    Gregory stacked the interview in favor of climate deniers by presenting one guest for and one against, giving the false impression that the two sides are equally valid and the debate is just he-said-she-said. If Gregory is going to give guests equal time, then when he has one climate denier, he needs to have 99 climate change advocates–all 100 guests having equal time–to reflect the true scientific consensus.

    I saw at the gym yesterday a segment on Fox News (couldn’t look away) that discussed how the media is spending so much time on so-called “climate change” and how preposterous it was. I tell you, I’d like to get my hands on whatever s–t the people on Fox News smoke because it’s clearly La La Land every day there.

    @JJ: The problem is that the one climate denier happens to be a member of Congress who has the power to make/control legislation.

    Like it or not, her (embarrassingly wrong) opinion carries more weight.

    With the Republicans, it’s all do what we want now and let subsequent generations pay the price. The Congresswoman has a look on her face as if she is so self-satisfied with her beliefs, nobody should attempt a discourse with her. Tragic.

    She’s right, neither are climate scientists. Why not have a climate scientist on the show or a congressman who believes in global warming? Nye is a general interest science advocate but it’s lazy reporting to make him the go-to guy for scientific controversy.

    @Bernard, maybe you haven’t noticed but the reports on Towleroad are not exclusively about LGBT news. Articles on Elaine Stritch, Jimmy Fallon, or Pussy Riot don’t directly relate to LGBT issues either. This site is a hodgepodge of various news and entertainment stories, LGBT and non-LGBT alike.

    I love what George Will said this past weekend on ABC:
    “When it comes to this, you can be sure of two things when it comes to those claiming “the debate is over”: number one, the debate is raging and number two, they’re losing it.”

    @BERNARD: do gay people not live on this planet called earth? What affects the world, affects gay people too. Do you live your life only being affected by gay issues? Such a narrow view of the world if all you see it through is your gay colored glasses.

    Having stories about issues that aren’t necessarily gay related, but also of general interest to gay people has been part of this site since the beginning.

    Here what I tell people who deny climate change:

    If I am wrong about climate change, the worst that happens will be spending money for a cleaner environment and the development of alternate power sources.

    If you are wrong about climate change, the worst that happens will be catastrophic destruction of parts of the Earth with millions of people being displaced, which will have vast geopolitical consequences.

    Are you really willing to take that risk?

    Even though I am not always the biggest fan of Bill Nye, but he is due kudos on this one as Marsha Blackman is one of most right wing Republicans that does NOT believe in science or legitimate research…She is not quite as stupid or rabid as Michele Bachmann, but she is close…….

    The only place that such polarized divisiveness exists with respect to climate change is in America (surprise) and it’s directly related to the two-party system. It’s almost expected that if you’re a conservative, or a Republican, that you’ll be fundamentally opposed to climate change based solely on your political affiliation. Evidence and rationale can wait at the door.

  12. Surprised says

    So much false information in these posts. To tell you the truth, you are all being manipulated. Is global warming happening? Yes, but1 degree in 150 years is hardly a worry. That aside, there is NOTHING we can do about it. What you “idiots” don’t do is think. If America totally stopped 100% of it’s Co2 emissions would we save the world? Nope, would not make a difference. Also, we were already told we had to drastically reduce our emissions by 2014 or it was too late. Guess what, it’s too late. Why are we spending our money to protect us from what ever the huge consequences of this global warming is going to cause? The world has been MUCH warmer just within man’s own history and we didn’t seem to have a problem. No reason to dismantle our economy and lifestyle for this. The world is not doomed, we are going to be fine. The left has been pushing some sort of world disaster my entire life. Ice Age, acid rain, Aids to wipe out 1/3 of the human race by 1993, no oil by 1990 at present rate of use, Ozone layer gone, etc. etc. Here is the way I look at it, if there is nothing we can do about it then don’t ruin people’s lives trying. Prepare for the inevitable and deal with that. Puts more people to work, not less.
