Skip to comments.Chuck Todd Bans 'Climate Deniers' from Climate Change Special

The Closing of the American Mind was Allan Bloom's groundbreaking critique of "absolute understanding" in academia and the way that it undermines critical thinking. If Bloom were with us today, we could imagine him writing a sequel devoted to the way the climate change industry has sought to silence dissent.
Chuck Todd gave a stunning example of the phenomenon this morning in his introduction of a Meet the Press special edition on climate change. Todd quite literally announced that dissent would not be tolerated. Here was Todd:
"Just as important as what we are going to do this hour is what we're not going to do. We're not going to debate climate change, the existence of it. The Earth is getting hotter, and human activity is a major cause. Period. We're not going to give time to climate deniers."

Liberals are the true totalitarians.
‘Ve vill haf no dizzent’ ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Apparently he has the same attitude towards barbers who aren’t visually impaired.
They even look mentally ill now
I’m pretty sure he’s sick and tired of people telling him that he’s full crap. Just a hunch...
Liberals always use exclusionary language to stifle debate.
No one is a “climate denier”.
Yes, the climate changes and everyone knows it. NO, you can’t affect it enough to matter unless you take us back to the Stone Age and we aren’t interested.
Nothing says “This is a cult” like banning any dissent. Dissent is the basis for Science.
Blind faith has no place in science.
violating the liberal’s own ‘fairness doctrine’ is he?
> We’re not going to debate climate change... <
And back to the Dark Ages we go, back to a time where it was forbidden to question establishment thought.
Off with their heads!
[[NO, you cant affect it enough to matter unless you take us back to the Stone Age and we arent interested.]]
Correction- NO, You can not affect the climate one iota- period- 0.00136% of our atmosphere (the amount of man produced CO2) is nowhere near enough to cause a thick enough blanket around the globe to cause global climate change- no way no how- even if we went back to stone-age living, it would have zero impact on the climate- even if we multiplied our CO2 output 100 times, it would still have zero effect- because there would still be far too little to cause a massive enough blanket to trap heat globally
The face of Stupid.
When I want to know about Science, I always talk to Journalists who have never passed a class in Chemistry or Physics.
Ahhh, proggie tolerance, inclusion, diversity and multiculturalism on display. Again.
when did “climate Change” go from “human caused” to “human activity is a major cause? “
That’s a huge difference. They can’t their “memes” right....
The main problem is he will ban all discussion of the benefits of warming and increased CO2. Then he will add a bunch of crap like "wavy jet stream" and pretend those are all "settled science". The fact is there is warming, mostly manmade, and it is good. Period.
Since you brung it up, Chuck. Upchuck. Heh, heh. Ahem. Is that cruise ship full of climate scientists that got stuck in the melting Antarctic ice cap in the middle of summer a few years ago still stuck in the melting Antarctice ice cap?
Another item of proof in my conjecture that journalists (and silly talking head types, who are not even as “good” as journalists) are not friends with real science. He’s a dumb*ss.
(And, as an aside bit of entertainment, we could always show that he probably gets to “work” in a limo, lives in a large house/apartment which consumes at least 200% more energy than average, and takes advantage of private jets whenever he can).
So, let’s make that a hypocritical dumb*ss. Or, to shorten: journalist.
Here’s the real question. Which are really the deniers? The cult-like true believers or the skeptics?
The true believers are like the communist party dems. If it does serve the party or its goals; it or they have no value to the collective. How very Stalinist of them.
