Raw Story - Fox ‘fair and balanced’ debate: Global warming happens in ‘fantasy world’ of scientists
David Edwards exposes more anti science stupidity from “Fox News.”
A Fox News on Wednesday brought on someone who had a “really long business card” to explain why scientists were living in a fantasy world if they thought the world was experiencing any negative impacts from climate change.
The morning after President Barack Obama likened climate change to global terrorism in a speech to the United Nations, host Steve Doocy announced that Fox News was having a “fair and balanced” debate between Bob Deans of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Myron Ebell of the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).
Although 97 percent of climate scientists acknowledge man-made global warming, Doocy promised that including Ebell would provide for a “good debate.”
Deans began by pointing out that the science was now settled: Burning fossil fuels is causing the planet to warm.
