Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Michael Palmer

Posted by Dave Blount at October 30, 2006 7:36 AM

Michael Palmer, general manager of Maine television stations WVII and WFVX, having had enough global warming moonbattery, has ordered his news department to stop hyping it until "Bar Harbor is underwater."

Annoyed when his stations broadcast a report for the fright fest "A Convenient Lie" "An Inconvenient Truth" that he characterized as a commercial for Al Gore, Palmer sent out an email noting that global warming stories are the equivalent of

"the killer African bee scare" from the 1970s or, more recently, the Y2K scare when everyone's computer was going to self-destruct.

James Hanson, a prominent global warming crusader who received a $250,000 grant from a foundation headed by Teresa Heinz Kerry, is not amused. He calls Palmer's refusal to partake of the panic "irresponsible," and shrieks that if we wait until Bar Harbor is underwater, it will be "too late." Hanson is best known for yelling from atop the liberal soapbox "60 Minutes" that the Bush Administration won't let him talk about global warming.

More of a threat to Hanson's grants and TV appearances than W's sinister repression is a dawning awareness that minor climate fluctuations are not news.

James Hansen: Not happy.
