98% of Stories Ignore That Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming MissionTopics: Global Warming, Political News and commentaries
Remember those global warming alarmists that were stuck In Antarctic sea ice?
Well, they've finally been rescued by helicopter after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But it's clear that most news networks didn't want you to know they were global warming alarmists ... after all, global warming alarmists being stuck in sea ice doesn't quite fit the liberal narrative - and neither does the fact that global warming has been non-existent in recent years. Most of the networks never mentioned anything to do with climate change.
Mike Ciandella reports at MRC:
[...] The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.More here...
In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as "passengers," "trackers" and even "tourists," without a word about climate change or global warming.
Chris Turney, the expedition's leader, is a professor of climate change at the University of South Wales. According to Turney's personal website, the purpose of the expedition is to "discover and communicate the environmental changes taking place in the south."
You just gotta love it ... "climate change/global warming alarmists" being stuck in sea ice ... awesome irony, as is the networks having to choose to purposefully ignore it so as not to conflict with the narrative they've been helping push all along.
