NBC News’ Anne Thompson: Climate Change Is Not A Religion

But, it is apparently very confusing, so, you should just listen to the experts

SmartPlanet: What concerns you most about energy and climate change?

AT: As a reporter, I think climate change is still a very confusing subject for the public to comprehend. I can’t tell you the number of times I have heard the question “do you believe in climate change?”

Climate change is not a religion. Climate change is science.

We’ve been inundated with the subject for decades, Anne: I think we understand it, and that’s why fewer and fewer believe in your “science”. And what is that science, Anne?

There is plenty of evidence that the earth is warming, that the chemistry of the oceans is changing, that growing zones in our country are creeping northward. The question is not “do you believe in climate change?” but “what, if anything, are we going to do about it?”

Whoops! She forgot to prove that the science that states that the warming is caused mostly or solely by Mankind. But, I love her question: what are we going to do about it? Well, how about turning the lights off, those ones that use enormous amounts of electricity, and, hey, are they all CFLs?, at NBC, broadcast by candlelight.

Via Tom Nelson, who points out that Ann Thompson, NBC News chief environmental affairs correspondent, has a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies from University of Notre Dame. Wait, according to the True Believers, we aren’t supposed to listen to someone who isn’t a climatologist.

    Exactly. Except learned talking-head babes. They know all. And don’t you dare make them look bad, Teach. Do you have a degree in climate warming? Have you studied the self-reported news reports from your OWN desk for years?!?? HAVE YOU?!?

    Have you gone on night after night after night after night saying the same thing over and over and over and over again? Well, she has!!!

    She’s been there, Teach. She’s been in that room when Al Gore posted up that flat handled hockey stick of historical temperatures until the 10,000 degree spike in the last 50 years. SHE WAS THERE!! Where were you, Teach?!?

    I don’t think you have room to lambaste her and her most learned of press knowledge when it comes to climate warming.

    She knows, Teach.


  2. To quote “Heh!”

    Well, that’s it then. If Anne says so, the earth must be warming. And we’re responsible for it. I didn’t realize that she graduated, let alone with a BA!!! That’s almost as good as a BS…right?
    Cap’n- was she really THERE, with Al Gore, when he showed THE hockey stick? WOW. So cool.

    Well, I have to ASSume she was there with him since she has the uber-knowledge that only comes from the likes of The One…I mean, the first The One – Al Gorical. He was there at the creation of time called the Internetz. He was there to solve the budget impasse when he was Large and in charge. He was the one who saw, studied, developed, extrapolated, contrapolated, confobulated, demotivated all that scientifichy evidence from all over the world about how man has been warming the planet for gigazeons of years!!! But yet, at no time other than now has the planet warmed, thus as Point A goes directly to Point F, man is the direct and inumeratable cause of the earth being warm.

    See, she’s right. I don’t understand it.

  5. Trish says:

    It’s spectabulous. I want to be just like her. When she grows up.

  6. Well, Trish, you would have to turn on A LOT of light bulbs at very high wattage along with tons of monitors and cameras using enormous amounts of energy causing a large release of CO2 in order to be just like her

    Gotta love how the folks like Heidi who push the issue are the worst offenders.
