Fox News found to be a major driving force behind global warming denial
American consumers of conservative media like Fox News distrust climate scientists and don't believe the planet is warming
Posted by Dana Nuccitelli
Thursday 8 August 2013
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/climat...

A new study published in the journal Public Understanding of Science (PDF available here) surveyed a nationally representative sample of over 1,000 Americans in 2008 and 2011 about their media consumption and beliefs about climate change.

The results suggest that conservative media consumption (specifically Fox News and Rush Limbaugh) decreases viewer trust in scientists, which in turn decreases belief that global warming is happening. In contrast, consumption of non-conservative media (specifically ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, and The Washington Post) increases consumer trust in scientists, and in turn belief that global warming is happening.

The study also examined previous research on this issue and concluded that the conservative media creates distrust in scientists through five main methods:

1) Presenting contrarian scientists as "objective" experts while presenting mainstream scientists as self-interested or biased.

2) Denigrating scientific institutions and peer-reviewed journals.

3) Equating peer-reviewed research with a politically liberal opinion.

4) Accusing climate scientists of manipulating data to fund research projects.

5) Characterizing climate science as a religion.

Media Matters provides examples of Fox News engaging in all five of these tactics. One prime example involves contrarian meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a frequent climate misinformation guest on Fox News who Rolling Stone awarded the #1 dumbest thing ever said about global warming for claiming that CO2 "literally" cannot cause warming because it doesn't "mix well in the atmosphere."

...Moreover, 73 percent of young voters under the age of 35 associate denial of global warming with words like "ignorant," "out-of-touch" or "crazy," including 53 percent of young Republicans. Climate solutions are also growing in popularity due to their real-world success, with British Columbia's revenue-neutral carbon tax enjoying 64 percent support, and California's carbon cap and trade system experiencing 67 percent support.

The question now is how long the Republican Party's global warming denial and obstruction of climate solutions can last in the face of these growing numbers of Americans (including Republicans) demanding climate solutions. Climate misinformation from Fox News and other conservative media outlets may be stemming the tide against climate denial, but the tide is rising, both literally and figuratively.

You continue to lie. You lie about the contents of a post, you lie about my religous affiliation something I've never declared, you lie about the contents of your own post, you post lies on top of lies on top of even more lies.

Here is cited example, it does not mention an eye for an eye, if you were not a sick perverted liar you would know this.

An early example of the Golden Rule that reflects the Ancient Egyptian concept of Maat appears in the story of The Eloquent Peasant, which dates to the Middle Kingdom (c. 2040–1650 BC): "Now this is the command: Do to the doer to cause that he do thus to you."

Actually it's in the Old Testament and predates Islam, something you're just too pathetically stooopid to realize.

Exodus 21:
23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.

Leviticus 24:
19 Anyone who injures their neighbor is to be injured in the same manner: 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury.

Deuteronomy 19:
18 The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against a fellow Israelite, 19 then do to the false witness as that witness intended to do to the other party. You must purge the evil from among you. 20 The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you. 21 Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

In your post Post # 23505, above on this page, you add to wiki as you do also with other posts here on topix. Like IO, you tell so many lies, you lose track of which ones you’ve told.

From your post # 23505 above;
“The Code of Hammurabi,(1780 BC),[12] dealt with the reciprocity of the Lex talionis, in ways, such by limiting retribution, as they did concepts of retribution (literally "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.")”

You added the “eye for an eye”, and now claim in this post you never said such.

Your link to my post shows I say NOTHING about your so-called Golden rule or Reciprocity.
The 2 terms are your attempt at subverting what I did say, which is, "The founding Fathers received their knowledge from their Christian forebears and passed that knowledge into the Constitution.“, which is the same as saying “the Constitution contains words and laws that show very strong influence from Christian teachings.”
Your words
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
The whole of my posts was the Christian teachings of equality that influenced the founding Fathers in the writing of the Constitution.

Your words
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
The founding Fathers received their knowledge from their Christian forebears and passed that knowledge into the Constitution.
..........
The point that you refuse to acknowledge is that the Founding Fathers were influenced by many sources, some religous, some secular.

I brought the example of the Golden Rule into the conversation to show that the idea of equality is not a strictly Hebrew, or Christian, concept, but a concept that is pervasive across religions. With clear evidence of the concept predating its mention in the Old Testatment.
==========
Your words:
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g...
Any knowledge gained from them copy cats known as Psychologist ( maybe you can explain this sorry inclusion as they are not noted for anything), Philosophy, Sociology and Religion, came first from the Bible as all of history shows mankind treat each other as slaves, chattels, and other such ways. And the one thing history teaches us, there was no equality among men, and definitely not among men with women.
..........
If this is true "the one thing history teaches us, there was no equality among men, and definitely not among men with women.", then how did the Founders learn it from Chrisitanity.

And the "sorry inclusion" "from them copy cats" is explained in the very link that you've probably not taken the time to read. But I'll bet that the a good number of the Founding Fathers were aware of these other sources of information.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Rule
This concept can be explained from the perspective of psychology, philosophy, sociology and religion. Psychologically, it involves a person empathizing with others. Philosophically, it involves a person perceiving their neighbor as also "an I" or "self."[3][4] Sociologically, this principle is applicable between individuals, between groups, and also between individuals and groups.(For example, a person living by this rule treats all people with consideration, not just members of his or her in-group). Religion is an integral part of the history of this concept.
==========
Please continue to post on this topic as you've shown yourself to a total ignoramous.

Wow... Right Wing Wacko World has some confused inhabitants.

It's understandable though.

Travelers who have returned from Right Wing Wacko World report that although generally freeloading deadbeats, the inhabitants there are sometimes,(albeit rarely), required to pay for their own mental health treatment, and,(being freeloading deadbeats), they often skip those sessions with their counselors.

That accounts for their confusion.

You obviously have a mental impairment that has affected your ability to comprehend the simple concept of reciprocity, and it is now understandable why you are having such difficulties in having a meaningful conversation.

It is obvious that each is the examples I provided are different aspects of the same concept, that of reciprocity.

In the one example, an eye for an eye is an example of do unto others as you have been done to.

In the second example, it is do unto others as you want done to yourself.

Both are examples of reciprocity. This is obviously a concept that is beyond your infeebled capabilities to comprehend.
