• NBC’s Al Roker Comes Out As A Global Warming Alarmist

    NBC’s Al Roker is often referred to as “America’s most trusted weatherman.”

    In fact if you Google “America’s most trusted weatherman,” a bevy of pictures of Roker will appear.

    When Roker isn’t reading a telepromter and informing his viewers of the latest weather patterns, he’s warning them about the dangers of global warming.

    Roker recently sat down with Larry King for “an in-depth interview” where he stated the frigid winter weather in the northeast this season has been fueled by climate change.

    Al Roker began by saying that “Boston, as of this point, is at the number two snowiest winter ever.”

    “Is this all part of climate change?” Larry King asked.

    “I think it is,” Roker responded. “Look, you can’t point to any one event and say this is climate change, but what climate change opens the door for and allows for is–more extreme swings of weather. So, while you’ve got this ongoing drought out in California, you know there has been almost no snow pack, snowfall, in the Sierras, and it barely has rained. Yet you’ve go monumental forest fires, wildfires.”

    “Here in the East you’ve got brutal cold,” Roker continued. “Yet globally, January was the warmest month on record. All these swings that are happening, climate change makes that more possible.”

    Roker “thinks” all these “extreme swings” in weather are brought on by “climate change” because there’s no way for him to actually know.

    Al Roker is not a scientist. And as far as I can tell, he doesn’t even hold a degree in meteorology or atmospheric science.

    Al Roker is paid handsomely to stare into a camera and read words from a teleprompter. He is good at reading and talking about weather. He’s done it for nearly three decades, which some say affords him the legitimacy to be named “America’s most trusted weatherman.”

    However, legitimacy on a subject as serous as whether or not man’s actions are warming the planet to dangerous levels shouldn’t be based on how long a person has been talking about the weather on TV.

    Al Roker has a communications degree. That’s good. But it doesn’t make him a weather expert. Having a communications degree and attempting to be a climate expert is worse than someone who’s taken biology classes professing to be a medical doctor.

    Thanks, Al. But no thanks.

    If human action is leading to the planet warming at a rate that will negatively affect life as we know it, fine. Most people would want to know what they can do to reverse that tide.

    But Al Roker simply isn’t qualified to speak on climate change, manmade or otherwise.

    And the last thing America needs is another professional script reader droning on about how he or she “thinks” humans are melting the planet.
