Michael “Robust Debate” Hearts Fossil Fuels Funded Al Jazeera

Why, you ask? (via Tom Nelson and Climate Depot)

(Buzzfeed) Climate activists, though, don’t see a problem: Reporting on, or even talking about, climate change over Al Jazeera airwaves, they say, is an improvement from what viewers see on the networks or the three leading cable news channels — no matter the source of funding.

“I think it’s wonderful,” said Michael Mann, a climatologist at Pennsylvania State University who was also a guest on the Inside Story climate panel. “What it says is that it shouldn’t be a matter of your politics or your monetary bottom line as to whether or not you believe in the science of climate change.”

“It shouldn’t matter whether or not you stand to profit from the continued sale of fossil fuels,” Mann said, when asked about issue of Qatari funding. “This is a network built on oil money from an oil-driven economy, but they don’t see the need to deny the reality of climate change.”

So, because Al Jazeera is patronizing Warmists, it’s OK with Mann (who has a pretty big “carbon footprint” himself) that the network is primarily funded by the sale of oil out of a nation that has one of the highest, if not the highest, “carbon footprint” in the world. But, then, Osama Bin Laden wasn’t too worried about fossil fuels funding al Qaeda, either, and much like Mann and other Warmists, blamed America.
