NBC's Global Warming Football Farce
As previously warned, the leftist ideologues running NBC-Universal have gone completely off the rails in their campaign to ram propaganda down viewers' throats. It's reached the point where you can't even watch a football came without being subjected to ham-fisted attempts at political indoctrination by this moonbat cult posing as a media conglomerate.
Sunday night football coverage regularly features unhinged ultra-left freakazoid Keith Olbermann, best known for spraying spittle as he screams at the top of his lungs that America is a police state and Bill O'Reilly is the worst person in the world. Last night, as part of a week-long blitz emphasizing the global warming hoax, NBC collapsed into utter self-parody by turning the lights off in the broadcast booth during the Cowboys/Eagles game and broadcasting by candlelight with giant energy-hogging video screens looming over their shoulders. As Hot Air points out, this comically moronic stunt did serve one useful purpose: we saw less of Keith Olbermann.
Unfortunately any polar bears that might have been rescued by the energy saved were placed back in jeopardy at halftime, when NBC allegedly took us up to Greenland, to which they had presumably jetted cameras, crew and the intensely irritating Matt Lauer. Lower stood in front of a massive bank of klieg lights and lectured us about the plight of the planet.
But maybe the polar bears are safe after all, Lower and crew having traveled no further than to a Hollywood set, despite explicit assurances to the contrary. Look — you can't see his breath:
Then again, I wouldn't expect to see a vampire's breath — why would a moonbat's be any different?
On NBC, this is the sports programming. Imagine trying to watch their version of the news.

I had already watched the video over at Hot Air and hadn't even thought about the 'no breath in freezing atmosphere' angle. But that is ironic, isn't it. Also the woman at the south pole was emitting no vapors in her breathing, and then I took a close look at Roker at the Equator, he's not sweating. Isn't that amazing? The whole thing is so phony, but then what do we expect from NBC?

I posted on this last night as well. Their hypocrisy went well beyond studio lights and jetting talking heads to the ends of the earth (maybe).
The commercial spots were focused on promoting hybrid, electric and hydrogen based vehicles. Some of the most inefficient and envrionmentally damaging vehicles we can currently produce. Electrics and hybrids cause massive amounts of environmental destruction because of the exotic materials used in their production. Hydrogen powered vehicles require hydrogen to be extracted from hydrocarbons or water since it does not occur naturally on our planet. This cause polution or requires massive amounts of energy, quite often both.
Check out my articel covering the subject: Height of Hypocrisy: Green is BS.

I was waiting for a polar bear to come charging out and drag Matt off screen. That would be must see TV.

I promise you, not a single moonbat dork at NBC picked up on the irony of having those guys do the pre-game by candlelight, while massive, energy sucking video screens shine brightly just behind them. This type of sanctimonious bull crap, is the exact reason NBC is a laughing stock. The dummy programmers at NBC probably won't get it until the entire network is bankrupt. Even then, I wouldn't count on it.

I'm sure that NBC has invited several of the dissenters just to make the discussion fair and objective. Right? NBC does want to give us both sides of the argument. Don't they?

Who do you think ordered up having ALL the lights turned on over at the EMPTY Citizens Bank Park and Franklin Field for those glorious night shots from the blimp that was aimlessly circling overhead? Talk about hypocrisy.
Ya think that the real people who are buying those 'gas guzzling' 3/4 ton trucks for work ( you know, the vehicles that are normally advertised during the games ) give a flying F about some a bullshit wealth redistribution scam? I think not. NBC you're pandering to NY libs is insulting.

Hey, you would be suprised at how some of those 'gas guzzling' vehicels compare in overall energy cost to the hybrids.
CNW Research release a study called ‘Dust to Dust’ that deals with the true cost in energy dollars of many vehicles on the market. This report is a comprehensive look at all types of vehicles examining over 3,000 data points per vehicle including research and development, pre-production, production, operation, maintenance and disposal. It found that many trucks and SUVs scored better than many hybrids on and over all energy cost per mile when compared comprehensively.
I have links to the study in my article called The Hybrid Lie.

To quote the "moon landing hoaxers":
"WHERE ARE THE STARS??? IT MUST BE FAKE!!!"

I was thinking the same thing. Bet then they would learn that Polar Bears are meat eaters and man-killers of the highest order.

For my part, I said silent thanks to the inventor of the mute button, a guy who really deserved the Peace Prize.
