this is why gop wants to defund pbs

they challenge the right wing nut job's dog whistle talking points....especially the "there is no such thing as climate change" meme.
mainstream news outlets spent a lot of time in 2011 covering the record-breaking year for extreme weather in the u.s. but only a few of them spent much time exploring the link between those events and global warming.

so pbs deserves a special mention for a segment that aired last week looking at how global warming is influencing extreme weather events. as jeff masters, co-founder of the weather underground, explained in the piece: "they all tend to get increased when you have this extra energy in the atmosphere. I call it being on steroids ... for the atmosphere." - grist

This is just one of many reasons why the GOP and their overlords want to defund PBS.

God forbid the citizenry is informed.
