Carol Costello Doubles Down on CNN Declaration of No Climate Change Debate
Newsbusters ^ | February 24, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 02/24/2014 9:48:07 AM PST by PJ-Comix

It appears that CNN is now going all in on its assertion that there is no climate change debate. Despite the absurdity of a news organization openly declaring that it is closed to any arguments to the contrary, the CNN Newsroom anchor Carol Costello has proudly declared her mind closed on this topic. In an opinion piece published at CNN.Com, Costello boldly took pride in her refusal to consider facts contrary to her belief in the very first sentence: "There is no debate."

Got that? Cased closed and so is her mind as she went on to prove:

There is NO debate!!! Got that? My mind is made up and I am NOT going to listen to contrary views!

NAH! NAH! NAH! NOT GOING TO HEAR IT!!!

BTW, do you know that I am an anchor on a news network? And I refuse to report news that runs contrary to my devout dogma.

I guess we can shutdown all of those “Research Centers” then. Since it’s settled. Right?

Global warming is a religion. Non believers are heretics and should be burned at the stake.

Yeesh. At least in the Soviet Union, you only had ONE state press organization. In the US, you now have to listen to both CNN and MSNBC spewing the liberal state line.

Strange bio comments:

http://mixedarticle.com/article/tv-celebrities/carol-costello-biography.html

Carol Costello was married in 2004. She had moved to Baltimore with her husband, shortly after her marriage. Since this lady didn’t want any interference in her personal life, no source has exactly revealed of her family backgrounds, name of her husband or anything else. It is not even mentioned if the couple is still together or has already divorced. The only confirmed news about her is that she doesn’t have any children yet.

With the stance of adorable height, Carol looks amazing with her pair of long and beautiful legs. Generally dressed formal, she manages to look very charming with her pretty feet on the TV screen. Her glowing face adds extra effect to be mesmerized for her viewers. Once speculated for undergone through plastic surgery of her face which was later proved to be false, she is one of the friendly anchors of CNN, according to her professional colleagues.

Recently victimized by robbery of her iPhone which was termed as apple picking by local police and attorney in 2013, she was very much prominent in reporting about the incident and making people aware of such attacks on the walkways. Displaying her calm and caring nature globally, there is no doubt of her getting paid with handsome amount of salary by her employer. Stunningly beautiful Carol Costello is one of the active tweeting members and her bio can be accessed through wiki.

conservative foundations and others have bankrolled climate denial to the tune of $558 million

I don't know of anybody who has denied that climate exists, or even that climate changes.

But how do I get my share of this 500 Billion?

This is what I can’t figure out. If you were a scientist and got all into this being “set and no debate”....well...we can do without half the research going on now, and just settle into one mentality. Let half the guys go, and put them back to researching....well....solar flares, magnetic pole shifts, and thermal dynamics (yeah, that other stuff that probably is making climate change that does occur).

I know....it’ll never sell. But I’m of the mind that you can’t do anymore research once you say it’s all pure and absolute. Surely, they can’t be that foolish.

They had to change “global warming” to “climate change” to keep the charade going. Yes, the climate changes all the time, so what?

True.

I happen to be a "real scientist". I'm not a climate expert, however I do seem to recall that for a phenomenon to be explained by anything more than an hypothesis, it requires rigorous testing.

"Global warming" and/or "climate change" to my mind appear to be inadequately tested hypotheses. As such, they/it would require much more rigorous testing (including funding the skeptics to do their best) and inviting the results to be presented in well-known scientific forums.

There is no such thing as "settled science"; and, if there were, it would only be after fair and thorough investigations and open debates, and would necessarily involve lengthy, fair deliberative process. (And even then, contrary opinions and evidence would STILL be welcomed and not ridiculed).

Unless someone can convince me differently (and I invite opposing views) global warming does not even describe an observable phenomenon, only some aggressively tweeked models.

"Global warming" and/or "climate change" to my mind appear to be inadequately tested hypotheses.

That is the beauty of Global Climate Change.™ It is so much more flexible than Global Cooling or Global Warming ever were.

Is it warmer than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.™

Is it colder than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.™

Is it wetter than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.™

Is it dryer than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.™

Is it cloudier, less cloudy, windier, less windy? It doesn't matter! No matter what the weather happens to be, it is proof of Global Climate Change.™

Everything is proof of Global Climate Change.™ Nothing is evidence against it.

Of course, it is all Bush's fault. Bush and those damned SUVs. Womyn and minorities will be hardest hit.

Thank Algore that a solution has been found. All we need is more central government control. This time, communism will work!

I bet there are at least 5 copies of books written by Goebbels in every newsroom. The Leftists have to refer to them often.

Probably a lot of Soviet propaganda instructions too.

The "Church of Man-Made Global Warming" is just taking its cues from the Church back in the days of Copernicus, and look how it turned out for the Church!

Well, it’s true that there isn’t much debate, but her beliefs are still moronic. Maybe if there was some debate, she might (very very long odds, I admit) learn something. But when debate is outlawed, only outlaws will have debates!
