I don’t know how long it takes to develop a TV show…

…but all morning MSNBC has been advertising a show called 2025.

MSNBC will premiere the third episode in its four-part environmental series, “Future Earth 2025,” on Sunday, December 20th, at 10 P.M. ET. The one-hour program will focus on the most desperate—but rarely discussed—crisis currently facing our global landscape: the severe threat to our water supply due to global warming and vast population growth.

I don’t know how much money these specials cost, I don’t know how much corporate investment there has been in terms of planned cross promotion but I’ll tell you this.

If you are wondering why at least NBC/MSNBC has absolutely no intention to giving any credence to the Climategate scandal, and did the best they could to pretend it never happened, look no further than this.

This again highlights the importance of Sarah Palin. The Palin Gore exchange forced media such as MSNBC to at least acknowledge the controversy.

But be warned oh news readers and hosts, et/al who push this stuff with grim sincerity: When this finishes blowing up and those who are trying to live the good life by scamming taxpayers worldwide with the audacity of Nigerian e-mailers fall (and they will)

…your credibility will be falling with them.

After all the story you won’t cover and the stuff you won’t read are only a few clicks away. They will happily take the traffic and your lost credibility.

When you can explain it in a 60 second clip than anyone can understand the game is up.

Meanwhile in Copenhagen

The Copenhagen climate talks hit trouble tonight as a number of African countries indicated their leaders would refuse to take part in the final summit unless significant progress was made in the next three days.

The showdown between rich and poor countries came as ministers began arriving in Copenhagen to take over negotiations. However, negotiators failed to reach agreement in key areas such as emission cuts, long-term finance and when poor countries should start to reduce emissions.

The pie has shrunk so there is less to pay off 3rd world nations to go along. What a shame.

  1. […] nobody at that MSNBC table mentioned climategate as a probable cause for any shift: The president’s decision to attend […]
