NBC scares the hell out of viewers: ‘Violent conflict over shortages of food and water’ to come from climate change

Taking its cue from the climate corruptocrats at the United Nations, NBC is hyping more fears of climate change Sunday night.

And if the teasers are anything like the show, it should be the scariest thing since Sissie Spacek’s hand shot out of the grave in the original “Carrie.”

On the “Today” show Friday, news anchor Natalies Morales might a liar out of her title with the breathless buildup: “The head of the World Bank is warning that climate change will lead to violent conflict over shortages of food and water. And this Sunday night, NBC’s Ann Curry shows us how ordinary people are already witnessing the impact of rising global temperatures.”

Assuming that “ordinary people” means ordinary Americans, it’s a good chance they’re not witnessing it by getting into violent conflicts over food and water – not even if they’re Democrats.

That’s not going to stop NBC, though, which posted this description of the documentary on its website:

A year in the making, and less than a week after stunning predictions about the future from the influential Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “Our Year of Extremes — Did Climate Change Just Hit Home?,” takes viewers on a journey to the Arctic at the top of the world, to drought stricken regions in the American West, to the edge of rising seas in Florida, and into extreme weather events all over the globe.

And so forth and so on. Fortunately, alert groups like the folks at the Media Resource Center point out that it’s not to be taken seriously. NBC and Curry have a history of eco-hysteria, including a particularly shameful moment in 2007 when she promoted former Vice President Al Gore’s “Live Earth” concert by declaring, “without you, there will not be the political will in the White House to fight global warming.”

Little did Curry know then, but that was only a year before another Democrat presidential candidate declared the moment had come “when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Unfortunately for the country, that candidate won. And we’ve been stuck in a horror movie since.
