CNN Anchor Bill Weir to Fox Nation: ‘You Willfully Ignorant ********’ [profanity in body]
Mediaite ^ | July 31st, 2014 | Eddie Scarry

Posted on 07/31/2014 10:05:34 AM PDT by McGruff

It’s safe to say CNN anchor Bill Weir is not a fan of climate change deniers.

On Thursday, the Twitter account for Fox Nation, a blog run by Fox News, tweeted a link to a post headlined, “Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore’s Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings.”

The story, aggregated from the Washington Times, relates to a Denver visit by former Vice President Al Gore‘s “Climate Reality Project” for EPA hearings on power plant emissions.

The group showed up to hand out ice cream even though it was 58 degrees.

Weir retweeted the link, with his own comment: “Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant fucksticks.”

We’ve requested comment from CNN.

CNN scrapes the bottom of the barrel in their ratings death spiral. They’ll hire Bashir next.

Weather is not climate... unless it’s hot or there’s a wildfire burning. In that case, it’s proof of global warming.

Weather is not climate. We have been telling them that for years but every time the temp is higher or lower than normal some leftist climate hysteric screams Climate change.

This isn’t the first time Weir has made inflammatory comments about Fox. Roger Ailes once said that Weir does it as a pathetic strategy to get noticed because his CNN program is bombing in the ratings. Weir is trying to generate some liberal buzz and gain traction as a CNN version of one of those Lib lunatic MSNBC hosts, but so far it isn’t working.

“Weather is not climate,

Except when it's hot or there are tornadoes , hurricanes, or floods that can be maliciously blamed on man (conservatives).

I’ll debate ANY CNN dork any time on climate change.

They’d better be prepared for something they don’t know...like math.

Al Gore‘s “Climate Reality Project”

They really should call it something else. Al Gore and Reality don’t go together well.

Good. CNNo one and pMSNBC can slap-fight it out for most dishonest tactics, lowest ratings and tackiest purse. Hair pulling allowed.

Funny...
Hurricanes are called evidence of climate change,
Floods are called evidence of climate change,
Droughts are called evidence of climate change,
Blizzards are called evidence of climate change,
Forest fires are called evidence of climate change,
Tornadoes are called evidence of climate change,
Even earthquakes are called evidence of climate change.
Right up until someone suggests they're evidence against climate change.
Then they're just 'the weather.'

Locally....Last week it was 92-96 all week. The "Global Warming stories were dutifully trotted out on all the local news shows, though it's only 8 or 10 degrees hotter than normal. (hot in the summer? Who'dve thunk it?)

Now.....this weekend, it's going to be in the high 70s ...8 or 10 degrees cooler than usual.

Any temperature alarmism? None yet, and I caught the news last night - I wanted to see what the weather was going to be. "Gorgeous!!! Cool and in the mid 70s!!!" was the gushing assessment.

I have never heard of this guy. That being said I think he called most of the left “willfully ignorant f**ksticks” because they call weather events climate change all the time. He should have gone with the old school “cool weather is not global warming” to add the proper degree of intelligence to his statement.

Climate is in fact weather, lot’s of weather.

And when some idiot states that the entire Earth’s climate is super duper hot and getting hotter, they might want to be able to produce a little bit of weather to support that.

Instead, they claim all weather, hot and cold, to be absolute proof of their hypothesis. Only an idiot would keep listening to them at this point.

Indeed, weather is not climate.

And weather is not climate when it suits your purposes, either, is it, Mr Fudgestick?

Apparently there's a history behind this outburst.

In an exclusive to Breitbart News, Fox News chief Roger Ailes shot back at CNN after the low-rated network interviewed Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and tried to mock Fox for “abandoning” him.

CNN anchor Bill Weir, a new hire at the third-place network, said to Bundy, “How does it feel to be abandoned by your friends on Fox? I mean, the only reason we could get you on tonight is that, I’m guessing, they didn’t call.”

When asked for comment, Ailes referred to Weir as “Bill Weird” and said Weir “is attacking me to get noticed.” Ailes added, “It's a cheesy start for a mediocre talent.”

There was a record low temperature two mornings ago in Atlanta, beating the previous record set in 1936.

[“Weather is not climate. . .”]

Yet Mike Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo and Obama all attributed Hurricane Sandy to “climate change.” This when NOAA, National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center said climate change wasn't a factor in Sandy. NASA said that a warmer climate would tend to push storms like Sandy out to sea away from the coast.
