Liberal bias: TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger says global warming is ‘established fact, immutable, not subject to politics’

While discussing a CBS News poll on global warming, Jeffrey Kluger proclaimed that “Global warming is an established fact. It’s immutable, it’s non-negotiable, it’s not subject to politics.”

CBS ran a poll from PollingReport.com on global warming in December that it did not broadcast as it revealed that global warming was a big issue for liberals, but few others.

The December 9-13 survey question: “Do you think global warming is an environmental problem that is causing a serious impact now, or do you think the impact of global warming won’t happen until sometime in the future, or do you think global warming won’t have a serious impact at all?”

The results surely pleased CBS liberals: 56 percent picked “serious impact now,” compared to 23 percent for “sometime in the future” and 17 percent for “no serious impact at all.” Just two years ago, the same question was split 46/28/24.

During CBS This Morning: Saturday Anthony Mason asked about the global warming scientific community adjusting to the incoming President Trump.

“The community is concerned and it should be concerned. Look. Global warming is an established fact. It’s immutable, it’s non-negotiable, it’s not subject to politics. Global warming doesn`t read tweets. It doesn`t care about who won the Electoral College vote. It`s an immutable bit of science and what we`re seeing is an administration that is choosing to appoint people who are hostile to that very idea, who, at best, will dodge it by saying, well, I`m not a scientist, I don`t know. Well, then listen to the scientists! Ninety-seven percent of whom say that global warming is real, it`s happening, and it`s a deadly threat.” (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)

The 97% talking point has been proven to be a lie, but continues to be repeated by the liberals.

Alex Wagner then asked: “…what about the discrepancy between the agency heads and the thousands of civil servants who actually staff these agencies and have done a large part of the climate work for the Obama administration?”

“Well, this is what we’re seeing and there is some hope here because a lot of these people are lifetime civil servants. They have the power of slowdown. They have the power of, for lack of a better term, passive aggression. Of course, they’re required to obey their superiors but there is work that’s done zealously in pursuit of a good cause and then there’s work that’s done grudgingly and there’s a quiet power in civil servants here but we’re seeing some danger already. The Trump transition committee has already sent a seventy-four-question questionnaire to the Department of Energy.”

” They pushed back on, yes, and that`s a good thing. They said these are civil servants doing their job. So, no, we’re not going to give you the names of people who attended U.N. conferences on climate change, we’re not going to give you the names of people who have studied the social cost of carbon because that’s an important study and these people are doing their jobs; but it still will have a chilling effect.”
