The Weather Channel Publicly Calls Out Breitbart For Claiming Global Warming Isn’t Real

The Weather Channel just pulled a Taylor Swift and asked to be excluded from a narrative, one that they have never asked to be a part of.

You see, Breitbart published an article last week that used some Weather Channel information to claim that global warming isn’t real. The Weather Channel is not happy about it. They are not happy at all. Look at this:

Before listing step-by-step how and why Breitbart’s article is all wrong, she said, “Here’s the thing: science doesn’t care about your opinion. Cherry-picking and twisting the facts will not change the future, nor the fact — note: fact, not opinion — that the earth is warming.”

The tweet that went along with the video has already gotten some major attention today:

Now, there’s just one topical question left…

Watch Parker tear into the conservative bastion above and then read the Weather Channel’s entire article here.
