Newsmax is just helping to prove anyone who chooses to be republican is either stupid or evil.

Why give a tabloid headline so much air?

And when did the equivalent of Weekly World News become such a center of focus?

Good idea! Let’s shut down all those killer trees!

Good lord, what is the average IQ of their audience? My 8th grade daughter wouldn’t be fooled by this line of reasoning.

There should be a legal way to remove organizations that claim to deliver the news but purposely deliver misinformation. This is a gross misuse of a platform. Fortunately it’s too stupid to be taken too seriously, but it was an actual attempt to characterize the position of reducing CO2 to competely removing it from the planet.

Newsmax’s plan for stealing viewers from Fox News is “When they go dumb, we go dumber.” It’s actually a pretty good plan.

Most of the audience does not believe it. They know perfectly well Kerry was not saying we’re going to remove all CO2 from the air. But they are perfectly willing to pretend to believe it if that lets them say bad things about liberals and democrats and environmentalists. Just like we can see from any faux news talking head, they absolutely love to lie and create straw-men just so they can beat the straw-man down.

They can’t find real issues with the actual positions and actions of the Dems and Liberals, they know how popular those positions and actions are. So they Lie about what the Dems and Liberals say and do in order to find something to go against.

With the amount of hot air coming out of the Newsmax “studios” I think we’ll all be just fine.

This must be one of those sucker tests, like the Nigerian scam e-mails with the poor spelling and grammar. “Let’s see which of our marks are ignorant and stupid enough to stick around after he says something this idiotic!”

I’ll bet that was he ads they served up later in the show were selling particularly toxic snake oil and woo.

Except they don’t do this at all, something two seconds of Googling would have told you.

Plants trap CO2, they don’t “turn [it] into oxygen”.

Honestly, it sounds EXACTLY like a C.O.B.R.A plot.

We will remove ALL the CO2 from the atmosphere unless you pay us a billion dollars into a swiss bank account!

All your plants will DIE and people will STARVE as the planet plunges into PERMANENT WINTER!!! Bwaa ha haha

The hysterical reaction by the right to “Biden’s climate plan” falls into two categories: just making up shit (e.g. “Biden will ban eating meat,” something the Daily Mail made up which was widely repeated by the right) and saying things that are completely insane (e.g. this). Occasionally some combination of the two (Kudlow saying that Biden will force you to only drink “plant-based beer.”) The situation is so bad, Newsmax isn’t actually being any worse than any other right-winger/propaganda outlet at the moment.

Well, plants do release some oxygen back at the end of photosynthesis, as they primarily sequester the carbon…

I just watched a documentary on Netflix yesterday, produced by that bastion of Liberalism, Arnold Schwarzenegger, about plant based diets. And how top performing athletes (including NFL teams, UFC fighters, and weight lifters) drastically improved their performance by switching to plant-based diets. They even tested the effects of meat diets vs plant diets on erections, of all things. (apparently, an 8% increase, at least for the NFL players tested)
