GlobalWarming.org’s blog features highly credentialed Competitive Enterprise Institute analysts along with a few others of equal caliber. Why is complete nobody like me here? The importance is not who I am, but instead what I represent:  any run-of-the-mill citizen who sees a massively expensive, unsound decision relying on only half the information available.

I have often wondered how the media are in such lock step on Global Warming. Well, I wonder no more. Recently, I came across a website for the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ). http://www.sej.org/ This website is veritable tool box for any budding reporter assigned to the global warming beat.

To promote hands on discipline, they offer a “mentoring program.” (more…)

The Journolist story demonstrates active, covert collaboration among leftists to plant political themes in the media. Long-time listeners of conservative talk radio are aware of audio montages where old-line media talking heads repeat verbatim a set of words that can’t be anything other than shared talking points. A perfect example was the 2000-era Dick Cheney “gravitas” showcased by Rush Limbaugh.
It’s one thing to ask how proper reporting of Obama might have changed the outcome of the election. I’ll ask a bigger question: Did old-line media journalists share talking points to prop up the global warming issue?
In his August 2007 American Thinker article “Global Warming Propaganda Factory,” Christopher Alleva described the coordinated efforts of the Society of Environmental Journalists:
