Bill Maher on global warming denialism and the media’s false equivalency

| »

It’s another excellent rant from Bill Maher, this time directed at those who deny the scientific reality of climate change:

He goes on about how it’s wrong of the mainstream media to keep promoting both “sides” of the issue as though it were a real debate. As though the hollering of politically-driven ignorami was any sort of a credible refutation against the research and logic of well-learned individuals who practice science for a living. It’s too bad that he doesn’t extend this sort of pro-reason rant to the field of medicine, specifically to counter anti-vaccination lunacy, however. But that’s another subject for another time.
