Yesterday, there was wailing and gnashing of teeth among the usual climate activists over the lack of interest in climate change during the presidential debate. Serial climate doomster Joe Romm, of the hopelessly compromised “Climate Progress’, who has been outed in the Wikileaks Podesta emails as nothing but a paid political operative, called the lack of interest by moderators “criminally irresponsible’, which is hilarious in the context of his own behavior.
On Twitter, admitted document thief and poseur Dr. Peter Gleick also had some sharp words:
Even the NYT got into the act:

Rigged system much?
Corrupt mainstream media bought off by the Left-wing elite.
We ‘all’ live in dangerous times when a politically, ideologically and money-driven media leans so heavily to one side.
By Alatheia Larsen~
As U.S. citizens prepare to select the next president, one liberal donor spent more than $103 million on media over the last 14 years to promote his own progressive agenda.
Liberal billionaire George Soros pledged to give at least $25 million to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes, according to Politico. And emails exposed by WikiLeaks showed Clinton staffers going out of their way to “make Soros happy” before the 2016 campaign even started.
But that’s just a small slice of the pie. Media groups in the U.S. promoting the same liberal platform as Clinton got more than twice as much Soros money.
Between 2000 and 2014, Soros pumped an astonishing $103,236,632 into media groups that circulate his liberal, anti-capitalist messages throughout the United States and abroad. Of that total, $61 million from Soros went to nine liberal media outlets…

How ironic that the “Greening of the planet”, thanks to CO2 (plant food), happens to be a very unwelcome messsge to the “Green” lobby and climate activists.
More proof that “Global Warming”, aka “Climate Change” has nothing to do with science or the environment, rather; power, money, ideology and virtue-signalling.
By Paul Homewood
Dellers writes for Breitbart:
Alarmist scientists are trying to cover up the good news that rising CO2 levels are making the planet turn greener. And that even includes one of the scientists who made the discovery in the first place.

Sweet justice for Pielke Jr. who has been smeared, slimed and threatened by the activist Climate gang for not towing the party alarmist line. Leading to him partly removing himself from the mainstream debate – the progressive Left’s intimidation tactics working as planned. Threat neutralised. (their aim at least.)
Pielke Jr. writes of such intimidation in 2010 after appearing at a Republican congressional committee:
Pielke Jr. has been mocked as the “political scientist”, in a partisan sense, by the likes of Podesta’s activist site ‘Climate Progress’:
“I have a PhD in political science, but no political science department would ever hire me….The main reason for this is that I do policy research with an eye to being relevant. *Policy research has never ranked highly in the axiology of political science.* ” :
In 2015, Pielke Jr. was one of 7 US academics being investigated by US Representative Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) – ranking member of the House of Representatives Committee on Environment and Natural Resources – for the “crime” of presenting data that disagree with alarmists who make bogus claims about weather and weather-related losses:
Excellent piece by Pielke Jr on the damage to science for discrediting free-thinking academics:
The Wikileaks Podesta emails – the gift that keeps on giving…
WIKILEAKS: ThinkProgress Trashes A Climate Expert’s Career To Appease A Hillary Donor
Posted By Michael Bastasch (Daily Caller)
ThinkProgress Editor in Chief Judd Legum sent an email to a billionaire donor bragging how the liberal blog’s environmental writer targeted a climate researcher who challenged a major Democratic talking point on global warming, according to leaked emails.
The blog’s environmental arm, ClimateProgress, (run by Dr. Joe Romm) took issue with pollster Nate Silver’s 538 website, hiring Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr. to write about global warming issues. Pielke is no skeptic of man-made warming, but he challenged a Democratic talking point that global warming was making extreme weather more severe.
ClimateProgress immediately embarked on a crusade to discredit him “[p]rior to Pielke writing anything” for 538 — based solely on the fact they didn’t like his research on extreme weather.
