John Stossel on climate change

John Stossel’s new show discusses global warming and climate change. John has been quoted on this site before. In general, Mr. Stossel takes a hard look at the various false representations that are presented to people and makes everyone think about their conclusions. I hope that his new show continues this tradition.


Stossel Responds to RFK Jr’s "Liar" on Global Warming Charge

Yesterday, I posted a segment from 20/20 where John Stossel discusses global warming. I couldn’t find a clip where Robert Kennedy Jr. called Stossel a liar but I did find an interview where both men discussed this together.

Depending on your point of view, you could make the point that both men "won" the argument. In my opinion however, neither took the time to make a great case.  Mr. Stossel invited Mr. Kennedy to do a true debate and that is what I would have liked to see!


John Stossel: Video: Give Me A Break – Global Warming

I just found this on YouTube.  I have a sense that it is a little old since Mr. Stossel discusses this issue in his latest book that is already several months old.  This is a clip from 20/20. 

If you are a relatively frequent visitor to this site, you have likely heard all of this discussion before but Mr. Stossel can put these types of stories together better than most, in my opinion.


I apologize if this material is copyrighted but I am not actually copying it to this site – the actual content is still hosted on YouTube’s servers.


Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity

Yesterday, I told everyone about a special 20/20 episode that is coming up where John Stossel is going to discuss global warming. Here is reference to his book “Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity.” I think it is excellent.

I hope you enjoy this read and make sure that you watch Mr. Stossel’s program on 20/20!


The Global Warming Myth?

ABC News – April 20, 2007

Set your VCRs and TiVo! John Stossel, who I think is a brilliant reporter, is doing a story on global warming. I have absolutely no idea what Mr. Stossel will say although this article by him probably gives us some clues. This article goes into several myths of global warming.

Mr. Stossel’s show will be on ABC’s 20/20 on Friday May 4th. It will be titled “Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity”. Mr Stossel also has a book by the same title.
