I know we already have a global warming thread, but sometimes a video comes along that is so outrageous that it deserves a spotlight of it's own. Forbes On Fox Panelists On Climate Change "Hysteria": "Socialism In Drag," "A Massive Human Delusion" | Video | Media Matters for America WOW. Just wow. I am not sure whether to be shocked or impressed that so much deception could possibly be put in a 5 minute segment. But since I have the overwhelming urge to debunk this video, I'm posting a thread on it. Myth 1: US cold weather/record lows this year disprove global warming. You can't just look at one year, you can't just look at one region and you can't just look at one country. It doesn't matter if there is a single year of more record lows than record highs, the overall trend looks like the chart on this article: Does cold weather disprove global warming? Myth 2: Scientists getting stuck in the Antarctic disproves global warming This goes with the "Antarctica is gaining ice" myth. The data shows that Antarctica is indeed gaining sea ice, but losing land ice. See Is Antarctica losing or gaining ice? Myth 3: They changed global warming to climate change. False and debunked many times. Global warming and climate change are two different terms with two different meanings and both still used in scientific journals. Steve Forbes is a smarter man than this. This isn't a flat out, blatant shameless lie from Forbes. Global warming vs climate change Myth 4: We've had weather changes in the past 4 billion years We are still less than a minute in the segment and the insanity is already in high gear. There is no way that Steve Forbes doesn't know the different between weather and climate. The difference between weather and climate Myth 5: Global warming is socialism in drag. No comment. Myth 6: Natural gas is a clean energy source. Apparently not... 4 states confirm water pollution from drilling Myth 7: Arctic ice is growing They are looking at just one year, from 2012 and 2013. Completely and totally dishonest cherry-picking. It's not about a year to year change, but the long term trend. Ice isn't melting Myth 8: Scientific forecasts have bring wrong Not really... How reliable are climate models? Myth 9: Global warming is a massive human delusion, if it were real, then Solyndra would be booming and Exxon-Mobil would be going out of business. My God, the audacity of these people amaze me. They are actually boasting here what they already know, that without a price on carbon, there is no consequence to CO2 pollution. It's a classic market failure, a negative externality without a price. Pollution is a socialized cost.
