Al Roker Appalled by Poll Showing 37 Percent Believe Global Warming is a Hoax
Newsbusters ^ | 4/03/13 | Geoffrey Dickens

Posted on 04/04/2013 3:23:58 PM PDT by Libloather

NBC's Al Roker was appalled by a poll of conspiracy theories that showed 37 percent of those surveyed believed global warming was a hoax. During a discussion, on Wednesday's Today show, of a Public Policy Polling survey that included respondents' views on everything from the John F. Kennedy assassination to the existence of Bigfoot, co-host Willie Geist reported: "Global warming is a hoax. Thirty-seven percent believe that."

To which Roker responded with an audible, "Wow!" and then later scolded global warming skeptics: "Okay, two words: Superstorm Sandy!" (video after the jump)

The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the April 3 Today show:

My city has two weather men who don’t agree with Global warming. They are on record as opposing it.

Due to all of Al’s hot air, a case for global warming could be made based on his exhaling only...

I, for one, agree with AL. I am appalled that at least 99% Americans have not seen through this manipulative manufactured crisis.

It doesn’t have to be true if it’s not a hoax. I believe most the people actually believe in global warming. Even the one’s faking the data are probably true believers. They are just wrong.

“Okay, two words: Superstorm Sandy!”

It sure must have been weird living in the 1950’s when there were no hurricanes, tornados, and the weather never got higher than 80 degrees.

I used to have a running bet with Mrs. Jewbacca over whether Al Roker would go talk to the sole black person in the crowd at the “outside scenes” on the today show.

She stopped taking it, because 100% of the time, he will choose the black person out of 99 white people.

I can’t stand racists of any color.

No, he's just another affirmative action hire who wouldn't know a weather map from a gonorrhea smear.

I love how when there is snow in Nevada or Texas that doesn’t count against Global Warming.

But Super storm Sandy or any other isolated weather event they can point to does count.

Or another thing that doesn’t count is the the fact that the weather records we are always breaking are always from the the turn of the last century.

Shut up Roker. You fat@#$

Yeah...I was just fixin' to ask if this Al Roker was the same sniveling buffoon who admitted on broadcast TV to crapping his pants on at least one visit to the White House.

Because I don't accept opinions concerning AGW from people who crap their pants. That's just an automatic disqualifier, as far as I'm concerned. ;-)

Seems to me that they’ve called a few of our winter storms “Superstorms” as well.

They must have been super because they’ve named every cloud to pass overhead.

When either spells of unseasonable extra cold weather or extra hot weather are both cited as proof of global warming (a term that has largely been supplanted by a more indisputable term: climate change, much like Progressive has supplanted Liberal), adherents to the “religion” are standing on shifting sands.

Al Roker is not a weatherman. He is a political hack and broadcast/journalist (nowadays a broadcast/journalist is a political hack). His weather reports are put together for him and he reads the words off a teleprompter. To call him a weatherman cheapens the degrees of every meteorologist. When The Weather Channel hired him to work with Stephanie Abrams I knew the global warming hoax was going to be pushed.

He attended the State University of New York at Oswego where he double-majored in graphic design and broadcasting/journalism.

No, you don’t understand that anything that supports the global warming cult is true. Anything that doesn’t support it is false. Sort of like Scientology but with cult followers who aren’t nearly as nice as David Miscarriage’s Sea Org.

Only 37 percent?

We have a long slow job ahead, trying to chip away at the other 63 percent.

Al this talk of anthroprogenic global warming is another example of somebody peeing on one’s leg, and the explanation given is that it is raining.

That is not rain.

Actually it snows, heavily, in Nevada every year. Five feet of snow during one storm in downtown Reno just a few years ago.

I can’t count how many snowstorms and blizzards I driven through in northern Nevada over the years. Snows there just like the High Plains of the Mid-West.

Seriously! I was hoping that at least half of Americans saw through this fraudulent movement. but then again, the American media did hide the climate-gate story where the most of the so-called prominent scientists admitted to lying and falsifying data.
