Saturday Morning Cartoon: South Park exposes the Idiocy that is MSM hysteria and Junk Science

I know some of my fellow conservatives have a hardtime with the crass humor and vulgarity that is a staple commodity in South Park; but if they can get past that, there is much to appreciate and be thankful for in South Park. Parker and Stone, the creators, are definitely equal-opportunity bashers; nothing gets their panties all in a wad more than religious extremism; and to the delight of conservatives: the liberal love affair with political correctness.

Sometimes the social commentary can be outstanding, as exemplified in the following episode (908), "Two Days After Tomorrow":


They skewer the media-driven hysteria that surrounded Hurricane Katrina; and tackle the eco-apocalyptic imperialism that is global warming. I've been wanting to do a post on global warming for the past couple of weeks, now. Maybe this will make a good prelude.

The above study splashes ice-cold water on the fantasy of psuedo- enviromentalists worldwide whose dream places blame for global warming squarely on President Bush and SUV's. This new theory adds to the body of evidence that points to the earth as self-regulating. Temperature, along with the amount of CO2, have fluctuated in a easily discernable pattern for the past 400,000 years, according to information revealed by the Vostok Ice Core study. During this time frame there were no interferences by human activities to account for these fluctuations. Are we to believe these cycles ceased to impact global temperature as a result of the rise of human industrialization?

In fairness, I have to give the psuedo-environmentalists their due: The environmental effects of reduced C02 emmissions as stipulated by the Kyoto Agreement have been noted by a study conducted by the National Soil Resources Institute at Cranfield University . Researchers discovered the soil was releasing CO2, offsetting the reduced C02 levels in the atmosphere. How Ironic! The industrial restrictions and vast amounts of capital spent by Britain (A Kyoto Signatory Nation) to reduce CO2 emmissions has been completely offset by the mother nature herself!

Did I tell you I love South Park?

I hope the above information is useful in your posting on global warming.

Here is another link that I have found quite useful in my own research of this topic

Thanks Skye.

My problem right now is I have too many articles, and am not sure how I should organize (getting started might actually help). But what set me off was 60 Minutes devoting their endorsement piece to the scientist that accused NASA and the Bush Administration of stifling him from speaking out.

I'm glad you are into South Park.
