Tucker Carlson unwittingly described what other Fox News hosts, including himself, constantly do and say to their audience -- while attacking CNN for reporting on the new UN Climate Change report.

Via The Washington Post, "The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found that the world is likely to surpass its most ambitious climate target — limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above preindustrial temperatures — by the early 2030s."

Since Tuckems panders to his anti-science, Christianist nationalist audience of conspiracy theorists, he attacked the UN and CNN.

Carlson's program played a few clips of CNN hosts covering the latest news.

"Humanity is on thin ice, and that ice is melting fast," John King said. "That warning, courtesy of the United Nations Secretary-General, made in tandem with a brand new United Nations report labeling the planet a ticking time bomb."

After the video stopped, Carlson began his anti-science rant that ended in his usual high-pitched squeal.

"There's no such thing as climate alarmism anymore. Nothing you say can be too extreme. It doesn't matter. That's science," Carlson squeaked.

The Fox News host claimed China was getting America to kill itself because we believe in science. I think.

"Well, how do you convince a strong, self-respecting, powerful country like ours that has ruled the world for 100 years to do that?" he asked. "Turns out it's pretty easy."

(Tucker just said that the U.S. is the actual one world globalist nation ruling the planet.)

Tucker blurted out what he does, as well as the entire Fox News network does, every day and night.

"You take a collection of dumb, desperate people in middle age hoping to keep on to their stupid TV jobs," Carlson said. "You add scripts and some hairspray and they just repeat the lies for you and then all the people in the country sort of nod, yeah, that's exactly right."

2020 election stolen. Check. Fox News viewers nod their heads.

COVID vaccines were the real enemy used to control our lives during the pandemic. Check. Fox News viewers nod their heads.

On January 6, there was no insurrection, but a few people got lost at the Capitol. Check. Fox News viewers nod their heads.

I'll leave it at that.
