John Stossel

24 October 2007

Once again, John Stossel covers the issue of climate change without any mention of the vast, overwhelming agreement in the scientific community that the warming of the past 50 years has been primarily driven by the emission of anthropogenic gases. Once again, he fails to mention the near-unanimity in the peer-reviewed journals regarding this point. Once again, he fails to mention that every major scientific organization whose expertise bears on this point has said the same thing.

Instead, Stossel once again frames this as an "it's-all-about-that-liar-Al-Gore" argument, and completely fails to interview any scientists that disagree with his position.

The rest of the report is filled with all the common contrarian talking points.
