This Sunday, July 16th, at 9PM ET/PT, The Discovery Channel will air Global Warming: What You Need to Know, with Tom Brokaw. The two-hour documentary will cover much of the same territory as Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Brokaw acknowledges as much. As he tells the AP: "It's the same science that we are drawing upon and it's irrefutable."
In advance of the premiere, the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works has issued a release denouncing the program as "devoid of balance and objectivity." This from a committee chaired by Sen. James Inhofe, the Oklahoma Republican who declared global warming to be the "greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people" -- a statement so completely devoid of reason, that, judging by the committee reaction, I'm guessing Brokaw and crew did a pretty fair job of it.
Update: MSNBC's Keith Olbermann names the authors of the committee release in his "Worst People in the World" countdown and reminds us that our tax dollars pay for this nonsense. Tip o' the hat to Gristmill.
