AGW Today: Kerry And ABC News Use FAIL Tag

You do have to give John Kerry some props: he is using the old saying that there is no such thing as bad press to good effect. Witness his latest histrionics

Speaking at a town hall-style meeting promoting climate change legislation on Thursday, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) predicted there will be “an ice-free Arctic” in “five or 10 years.”

“The arctic ice is disappearing faster than was predicted,” Kerry said. “And instead of waiting until 2030 or whenever it was to have an ice-free Arctic, we’re going to have one in five or 10 years.”

Except, none of the other climate alarmist organizations agree with him. Perhaps Kerry should check the ice himself. Stay there for the next 5-10 years and let us know. That way, when he says something really stupid, he won’t follow it up with more incredible idiocy

Kerry further said: “Predictions of sea level rise are now 3 to 6 feet. They’re higher than were originally going to be predicted over the course of this century because nothing’s happening. But the causes and effects are cumulative.”

“The Audubon Society — not exactly, you know, an ideological entity on the right or the left or wherever in America — has reported that its members are reporting a hundred-mile swath in the United States of America where plants, shrubs, trees, flowers — things that used to grow — don’t grow any more,” Kerry said.

Intelligent discourse and rebuttal usually goes right here, yet, I believe I will go with the old standard “liar liar pants on fire.”

Let’s move to ABC, which has gone from news organization to advocacy group

“It’s so hot outside, you could fry an egg …” or something like that.

Perhaps ABC News should have rehearsed their attempted dramatic presentation to promote global warming alarmism before going forward. But instead, they have egg on their face after failing to fry an egg in the heat, that is.

According to a spokesman for Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., a producer for ABC News senior congressional correspondent Jonathan Karl requested an interview about pending climate legislation. However, the producer insisted it be conducted outside instead of in the U.S. Capitol or in any of the surrounding Senate office buildings. Washington, D.C. temperatures have been in excess of 95 degrees. An abbreviated clip of the interview aired on ABCNews.com’s “Topline” on July 23.

Hilarious video is available at the link of frying egg failure.
