DN Editorial: Why aren't candidates debating climate change?
Philadelphia Daily News
THE PAST 12 months have been the hottest on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Throughout the nation, drought, wildfires, floods and other extreme weather have made global warming a visible reality.
Have you ever noticed when a large media outlet does an urgent global warming OpEd that it usually is written without accreditation? In other words, the anthropomorphic global warming lobbyists (i.e. Al Gore) contacts said media outlet, and says, "we need to push this right now, because they're ignoring it on the big stage, and everyone will assume that it's now a non-issue....HURRY!"So it was maddening - and tragic - that both presidential candidates spent significant time during Tuesday's debate trying to one-up each other on how much more fossil fuels they plan to extract, burn and allow into the atmosphere. In three debates so far, climate change hasn't been mentioned once.
I'm willing to bet that is exactly how this OpEd came about. The proponents of anthropomorphic global warming noticed they were being left off the bus in this presidential campaign. They, also, noticed that when the Met Office passed on a report showing that global warming seems to have taken a hiatus over the last 16 years that the facts resonated world wide a lot louder then they were hoping.
This article, by an unknown author is a kneejerk reaction from the anthropomorphic public relations department. I would be surprised if Philadelphia Daily News staff actually wrote it. I would expect that it was emailed to them to print and published as a package. That's how the environmental weenies operate. Any threat to the federal and international study grant train is crushed as quickly as possible.
Addendum: Oh look, this very same Philadelphia Op/Ed showed up in Minnesota. Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Two up for grabs swing states...shocking.
