Joe Scarborough likes his news with a little less reality, thank you very much. On Tuesday's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough openly scoffed through Mika Brzezinski's news cast that included the news that the polar ice may be melting faster than previously thought, resulting in the endangering of polar bears, among other species.
Willie and I were just sitting there and were saying, ‘did Al Gore write the news this morning?’ And coming up next, [wistful voice] little cubs…little polar bear cubs in the North Pole…are being separated by their mothers by ice floe breaks.
Yeah, let's not deal with the reality staring us in the face. It's so much better to muddy the dialogue by openly scorning scientific work, isn't that right, Joe?
There is global warming, especially in this room. Thank you for “An Inconvenient Newscast,” Mika.
Charming to the end. Don't worry, I'm sure those rising sea levels won't affect you at all.
On a related note, EnergySmart is asking you to contact your elected representatives to demand that they fix the Lieberman-Warner CISA bill before it heads to Bush's desk for signature.
