I’m On a Deadline, and Need Some Sciencey Sounding BS Fast. Can You Help?

February 20, 2014

bigbilllittleMy friends at Desmogblog send this along.  Apparently their email got into Bill (“tide comes in tide goes out, you can’t explain that”) O’ Reilly’s rolodex.

Desmogblog:

Look out, folks. Bill O’Reilly is about to talk about global warming again on the O’Reilly Factor.

Of course, he’s already reached his conclusion that “Nobody can control the climate but God.”  It’s just that he doesn’t have any data to back up his anti-science position.

So he has one of his producers on the hunt today, apparently scrambling last minute, looking for “the very best arguments” to support climate change denial. Here’s the email DeSmogBlog received this morning: (above)

I feel for O’Reilly’s producers, honestly. It must be tough to face this “very tight deadline” problem when asked to provide factual support for a baseless, ideologically-motivated assumption.

Good luck, Robert and friends. It’s a difficult job making stuff up so your boss can maintain his politically driven network’s ignorance about climate science.

Who knows, maybe he’ll surprise us this time. Stay tuned.

    Priceless!
    Difficult to prove without the mail header which may contain a DKIM signature, but it simply confirms what everyone outside the Fox Fiction Factory already knows.


  2. This is the REAL ClimateGate!

    Obviously O’Reilly’s producers assumed that Desmogblog was along the lines of Climate Audit or Climate Depot — that they were in the business of throwing up denialist smokescreens — a veritable smog of bs–to help obscure the reality of AGW. How embarrassing! Never mind!

    I thought the best argument was that there’s around a 5% chance that it will only be +2C by 2100; and that 2200 should just tough it out because it’ll be a long time before they even exist.

    It’s easy for God to change the climate. He just has to create Adam & Eve, wait 6000 years or so for their descendants to discover the so-called fossil energy he conveniently tucked away so these dumb humans could find it, PRESTO, in a couple of centuries or so they’ve released so much of it into the atmosphere, the climate is changing.

    Or maybe that was the Devil……. oops!!
