The real war on Christmas and why it matters

Bill O'Reilly

Christmas season is making me tired. Every year, I get tired of hearing jaunty, NutriSweet-y jingles that sound like they're sung by Hello Kitty touted as "Chrismas Carols" and played earlier and earlier in the fall. "Here Comes Santa Claus" on November 11 — it's a revolting enough song if you have to hear it once. But do we really need to endure this particular brand of nausea for a full six … [Read more...]

#22: We push back on Beck (Limbaugh & Hannity too)

reason22

There are lots of websites out there covering climate change. Some of them even use humor. But when Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other Fox News bloviators used record cold weather last winter as an excuse to bash climate science, Transition Voice was the only one to hit back with our own Global Warming Truth Index. It's a snarky parody that purports to show whether climate … [Read more...]

The iceman cometh. Al Gore goeth?

Back, Hannity and Limbaugh as polar bears

January was a banner month for snowstorms and wintry weather across the US. It was also a banner month for Fox News commentators to excoriate Al Gore and pound home the message that global warming must be a hoax. In the second month of its new Beck-Hannity-Limbaugh Global Warming Truth Index, Transition Voice has again collected weather data from the three Fox commentators' hometowns to … [Read more...]

But for the audience that's more likely to watch Hannity than Gore, the Pew Climate Security Project has launched a smart campaign using … [Read more...]

Robots refute peak oil skeptics

If you're a fan of cartoon robots that swear like Dave Chappelle in slow, syllable-enunciating computer-generated voices, then "Have You Heard about Peak Oil?" by Noodles/xtranormal is the video for you. It starts off with the direct approach: "Have you heard about peak oil?" "I don't want to hear anything about your global warming bullshit. It's a hoax perpetrated by the socialist Democrats … [Read more...]

Global warming is a hoax, December data show

Beck-Hannity-Limbaugh Index header

As Fox News commentators once again this year argue that heavy winter weather on the US East Coast is evidence that the Earth is not warming, Transition Voice has developed the Beck-Hannity-Limbaugh Global Warming Truth Index. Using current local weather to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to the whole theory of global climate change will no longer require talent on loan from God. Now it will … [Read more...]

90s TV show debunks Fox climate skeptics

Tucker Carlson.

Bow-tie wearing conservative commentator Tucker Carlson, who currently faces a firestorm from critics on the right and the left for saying that football player Michael Vick —the ex-con who served time for his part in an illegal dog-fighting ring—should have been executed, is also on the hot seat for a recent segment where he mocked climate scientists. Sitting in for equally befuddled Fox … [Read more...]
