Joe Romm & Keith Olbermann Spell Out Who Really Takes Money to Lie

August 27th, 2011 by

This is an excellent video of Keith Olbermann and Dr. Joe Romm talking about some of the most ridiculous myths the GOP, Tea Partiers, and global warming deniers spew without thinking, or without expecting those listening can think.

Some key points:

  • “It’s politicians who take money from people to make up crap.. scientists have to have reproduce-able conclusions and results.”
  • clean air and clean water (which the EPA protects) is one of the most popular issues among the public.
  • anti-science IS anti-jobs

Check it out:


Well said. I have to admit.. I love Joe Romm (Olbermann is great, too).
