NBC Panics Over Climate Change, Blames Manchin for Blocking Biden

Breaking News

On Monday night’s NBC Nightly News, after spending the first five minutes of the broadcast panicking over a heat wave in the middle of July, anchor Lester Holt and correspondent Anne Thompson chalked the warm weather up to “climate change” and sought to blame Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) for blocking the Biden administration’s radical climate change agenda which would drive inflation up further by pumping more money into the economy. 

“This severe weather certainly underscoring the increasing role of climate change and the challenges America faces in trying to combat it” Holt whined before turning to Thompson to give her report. 

Thompson picked up where Holt left off by dramatically proclaiming “as the nation swelters through this heat wave any immediate climate action is on the ropes after two stinging defeats. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin from coal-rich West Virginia today defending his decision to block President Biden’s climate legislation including tax incentives for wind and solar power and electric vehicles.”

“Add to that the Supreme Court limiting the EPA’s ability to regulate carbon emissions from power plants, the nation’s second-largest source of the gases driving climate change” Thompson cried.

She then interviewed Dan Lashof of the leftist World Resources Institute about what Manchin blocking Biden’s climate agenda and the Supreme Court striking down the EPA overstepping its authority to regulate “do to President Biden’s climate agenda?” 

Lashof bemoaned how “there’s no sugarcoating it” and “they’re major setbacks.”  

Thompson cried over the fact that “polls show a majority of Americans, 65 percent are worried about global warming, but only one percent of voters say climate change is the top issue facing the country. Among voters under 30 that number rises only to three percent.” 

Turning back to Lashof, Thompson fretted how “climate change always seems to be the issue that we can put off until tomorrow,” asking “are we at the point that we can no longer put off acting on climate change?” 

Lashof ludicrously claimed “30 years ago it was a problem for the future. It is a problem for now, now.” 

Nowhere in this report was there any feedback or interviews with clear-thinking experts who would’ve told Thompson that the planet goes through a series of warming and cooling phases and humans have no control over the climate. Lester Holt wasn’t kidding when he said he thinks “fairness is overrated”

LESTER HOLT: This severe weather certainly underscoring the increasing role of climate change and the challenges America faces in trying to combat it. Anne Thompson has that story. 

ANNE THOMPSON: As the nation swelters through this heat wave any immediate climate action is on the ropes after two stinging defeats. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin from coal-rich West Virginia today defending his decision to block President Biden’s climate legislation including tax incentives for wind and solar power and electric vehicles. Manchin says it calls for spending that will send inflation even higher. 

SENATOR JOE MANCHIN: I haven’t walked away from anything, and inflation is my greatest concern. 

THOMPSON: Add to that the Supreme Court limiting the EPA’s ability to regulate carbon emissions from power plants, the nation’s second-largest source of the gases driving climate change. 

What did those two developments do to President Biden’s climate agenda? 

DAN LASHOF (DIRECTOR, WORLD RESOURCES INSTITUTE): Well, there’s no sugarcoating it. They’re major setbacks. 

THOMPSON: Biden hoped to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. Polls show a majority of Americans, 65 percent are worried about global warming, but only one percent of voters say climate change is the top issue facing the country. Among voters under 30 that number rises only to three percent. 

Climate change always seems to be the issue that we can put off until tomorrow. Are we at the point that we can no longer put off acting on climate change? 

LASHOF: We absolutely should not be putting off action on climate change. 30 years ago it was a problem for the future. It is a problem for now, now. 

THOMPSON: President Biden is promising executive action, but climate activists believe without congress acting to speed up wind and solar installations and electric vehicle purchases, it won’t be enough. Lester?
