MSNBC's Matthews: 'Miserable' Culture 'Pleasures Itself' Over Argument there Isn't Climate Change
NewsBusters ^ | December 12, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 12/12/2009 4:59:48 AM PST by Rufus2007

Leave it to MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews to go into creepy mode over the possibility one could be skeptical about the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

On his Dec. 11 broadcast, the same guy who got a thrill up his leg over President Barack Obama and made an awkward pass at CNBC host Erin Burnett on live television, used a bizarre portrayal to describe those who don't ascribe to the theory that man is causing the globe's temperature to increase (emphasis added).

"Well, what do you think when you read these miserable people in The Wall Street Journal op-ed pages? And I -- I picked The Wall Street Journal. I don't get it. There's some kind of culture out there that sits around and talks to itself, and pleases -- pleasures itself, I should say, over the argument that there isn't any climate change. What is in their breakfast that makes them do this? Why do they ignore science? Maybe they're the same people that ignore the evidence of evolution and millions of years of bones. What is it about them that just -- and they're -- and they're pandered to by the editors of The Wall Street Journal and other organs, like Fox News."

the more allusions to homosexual eroticism Chrissie makes in his public comments, the more insights we get as to what he “probably” does to comfort himself

He is not a thumb-sucker!

Meanwhile this perv ignores the scientific descent that has been ongoing for the last 20 years. He truly is a pathetic individual who would not be on television if he hadn't been some Democrat's rump rider back in the day.

pleasures itself, I should say, over the argument that there isn't any climate change.

We don't deny there is climate change, but only that it is caused by human activity.

They knowingly continue to perpetuate the lie that we do not believe in climate change. How many times and ways must we say it? Sarah Palin specifically said she acknowledges that the climate is changing but it is not due to, or can be corrected by, anything man-made.

I am fed up with these communists. They are throwing all the cards on the table. The good thing is the more they spout their lies the more their ratings drop. However, the bad news is.... since when did communists care about what we think.

Also, more disturbing is commie matthews eludes to the fact of indoctrination. When he said “when will CHILDREN start telling and convincing their parents about this”.

I don’t know about you but this country can not take any more of these arrogant, one sided people.

Chrissy, Freeman Dyson is one of he most highly recognized and respected scientists on the planet, and he doesn't think the science supports anthropogenic global warming. Educate yourself before you make blanket statements.

LOL. Creepy Chrisy. OTOH, after the "leg tingle for Obama" admission it's interesting to learn that Chrisy also likes the ladies.
Say, where's that picture of Obama embarrassing Chrissy in the style of the cover of a romance novel?

Matthews is an idot.

No one is arguing that there’s no such thing as climate change - we’re arguing that humanity is not the cause of it, and nothing politicians do will alter it.

What a freakin’ putz.

What is in their breakfast that makes them do this?


What is it about a man that causes a thril to run up another mans leg?

Can we even pretend to take some one like this serious?

Sure, everyone knows that there has been climate change since the beginning of time, just common sense, but probably the most drastic before man was even here.

Did the animals that left all of the bones build, drive cars and smoke?

Do i believe scientific facts? Do you believe in common sense?

Example

Mom, where doe,s water come from?
answer, it was made when the earth was formed.

Mom, where doe,s oil come from?
Answer, it comes from dead animals.

I believe common sense would say that oil was also made when the earth was formed, so no i do not trust all of the so called facts.

Remember the facts that were changed or hidden by the global warming crowd in order to steal billions of dollars from us and to put us in slavery to the environmentalists?

Any one with such a short memory should not be talking about scientific facts.

Chris Matthews is ignoring science in order to avoid the substance of the arguments that challenge the alchemy of global warming. Mr. Matthews would better serve the country if he took a look at the substance of the scientists skeptical about AGW. Of course, he cannot because he has not the training or intelligence. He can only decide who to believe -- those that pay him or the rest of the world?

Matthews and his ilk are good at name calling, character assassination, at being victims, employing the "blame" game, and proclaiming the good intentions of policies they want to advance. They put forth what they know, policies with no substance and a proven record of failure. Policies based on junk science. Policies that will enrich those who want them implemented.

I haven't turned on the TV since some time in early November, and the reason I keep it is because I will want to have access to television if there is a major terror attack OR if a major war breaks out OR if there is massive civil disobedience OR if somebody somewhere finally decides to act upon the Iranian Problem.

Elsewise, I'm with you -- I cannot abide Little Miss Katie Cutie Couric AKA The Perky One -- did you see the transcript of the poem that she read on CBS Evening News, it's a poem about the healthcare legislation.

LOL

No doubt there is climate change.

I don’t even NECESSARILY deny that it’s anthropogenic, because there are over 6 billion humans on this ball now which is over twicet what it was when I was a boy. But I think coal heat and power in China and cook fires in Africa have more to do with it than our few million low emission vehicles here in the USofA.

At any rate, I DO deny that these a-clowns have any IDEA what’s REALLY going on, I’m not sure what’s really going on can BE known, and I KNOW that cap and tax of the most innocuous gas in the universe, CO2 is not the answer to anything except filling the pockets of the elite while destroying the middle class, i.e. impoverishing the nation.

The climate is constantly changing, seasonally and more. Their argument is that humans are causing global warming and that hypothesis is far from proven nor supported by observation. The basic questions are "Is the planet warming and, if so, why?"

The historical record shows warming and cooling periods and human activity doesn't have anything to do with them. Perhaps Chrissy could explain what caused those previous cycles first and then we could discuss what is and isn't happening now.

The difference between “them” and “us” is that they do take someone like this seriously...and because he manipulates public opinion for them. This deceit is our threat. Not Chrissy. And deceit runs from the light.

Indeed, the e-mails show that they were NOT engaged in science, but an attempt to redefine peer reviewed literature, “hide the decline”, and cover their tracks by destroying raw data.
