The circular reasoning of the Global Warming Cult goes like this: WE ARE SMART BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING. GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL BECAUSE SMART PEOPLE LIKE US BELIEVE IN IT. There is no room for facts or logic within the circle. And when unfortunate facts emerge outside the circle, like a group of Global Warming cultists getting stuck in Antarctic ice after traveling to Antarctica in the middle of summer to prove that Antarctic ice was melting, the Global Warming cultists in the MFM dutifully hide such facts from the public; lest the infallibility of the Cult of Smart People come into question.
The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.
In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.
