Global warming hysteria, 1989

Check out this snippet. Sidenote: Larry King looked pretty good back then for already being 85 years young.

If you played a drinking game based on the fallacies, sensationalism, and unwarranted assumptions just in this three-and-a-half-minute promo or whatever it was, you'd be in the the hospital. Or the morgue.

That was 21 years ago (points out the guy who almost flunked consumer math). Anything seriously changed since then, either in the climate or in the hysteria of warmenists? Nothing much in the former; in the latter, of course, global warming has become "climate change." That's about it.

(via commenter Leigh on this Tim Blair post. Gotta note the one guy's reply to Leigh's comment: "I see they hired Ted Baxter’s brother to narrate the show.")
