Meet the Press used to be the gold-standard for political debate. NOT ANYMORE.

CEI has launched a digital and print ad campaign exposing NBC's climate debate bias.


Americans deserve an open debate on climate change and how to address it.

That's not what we got from Chuck Todd and Meet the Press on their December 30th special.

They devoted an entire show to promoting the views of climate

change alarmists. He says “the science is settled even if political opinion is not.” Todd expressly banned dissenting views, which are rooted in real-world scientific data.

That is not how science or scientists work. In the words of Charles Krauthammer, “There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge.”

Contrary to Chuck Todd and the alarmists, there is a real debate among scientists, if not television journalists, about the extent of warming and its effects. Although the computer models predict rapid warming, the actual temperature data show only a modest rate of warming.

Real-world data demonstrate that the policies supported by climate alarmists are unwarranted. Huge tax hikes and energy rationing will cripple our economy, especially hurting those who can least afford it.

Millions of Americans agree that global warming is not a crisis that requires turning the economy and our lives upside down — but you’d never know that from watching Chuck Todd and Meet the Press.
