CNN Meteorologist: 'Definitely Some Inaccuracies' in Gore Film

     Meteorologist Rob Marciano clapped his hands on CNN’s “American Morning” and exclaimed, “Finally,” in response to a report that a British judge might ban the movie “An Inconvenient Truth” from UK schools because, according to the broadcast “it is politically biased and contains scientific inaccuracies.”

     “There are definitely some inaccuracies,” Marciano added during the October 4 broadcast. “The biggest thing I have a problem with is this implication that Katrina was caused by global warming.”

     Marciano went on to explain that, “global warming does not conclusively cause stronger hurricanes like we've seen,” pointing out that “by the end of this century we might get about a 5 percent increase.”

     The case stems from a father’s claims that the film is brainwashing propaganda, who told The Telegraph, “I am determined to prevent my children from being subjected to political spin in the classroom.”

     Managing Editor of the Business and Media Institute Amy Menefee previously pointed out that Journalists have been promoting a link between hurricanes and global warming for more than a decade.

     In 1992, Dan Rather covered an exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History that predicted global warming chaos that proclaimed that, “…models predict warmer tropical oceans. More heat from the oceans adds energy that creates powerful winds. This could lead to stronger storms and hurricanes.”

 

     In 2004, the “NBC Nightly News” had The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore on to talk about Hurricane Isabel, who pondered, “Is it global warming? Maybe so.”

 

     The Business & Media Institute has extensively critiqued the media’s coverage of global warming in Fire & Ice, which covers a hundred years of coverage of global warming. While journalists have warned of climate change for more than 100 years, the warnings switched from global cooling to warming to cooling and warming again.
