Climate Change is Real Despite Fox News

Media Matters takes Fox News to Task. Watch the reasonable person talk, then watch the Republican climate science denialist lie:

Here is a graph from Media Matters that you should post on your Facebook page and elsewhere:

Fox News and Climate Science Truth From Media Matters: "The American Geophysical Union and several other scientific bodies including the National Academy of Sciences have acknowledged manmade climate change based on a strong and growing body of evidence.
Despite all of this, Fox News has continually and falsely claimed the consensus on climate change does not exist -- yet another example of the network's willful denial of facts. As MSNBC host Rachel Maddow put it after the 2012 presidential election, conservative media need to "pop the factual bubble" if they're going to offer solutions to our problems rather than just wish them away."

"For every 1 dollar backing climate change research and education there are 10 dollars spent in an effort to undo all that good work." That's what he was thinking but didn't say.

Not to mention that, for every rational Republican (who votes in primaries) there are there are 10 Tea Partiers. That’s what he was thinking but didn’t say.
