MSNBC Asks Climate Radical: Is Our Propaganda Hysterical Enough?

msnbc-asks-climate-radical:-is-our-propaganda-hysterical-enough?

During an interview with a radical climate activist on his show late Thursday morning, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin asked her to access whether the media was doing a good enough job spreading environmental hysteria and propaganda. Predictably, the young leftist urged the press to “do a little bit more” for the cause.

Talking to Jamie Margolin in the 11:00 a.m. ET hour, Melvin explained that she was “the co-founder and executive director of Zero Hour,” which he blandly described as “an organization that elevates young voices specifically in the conversation surrounding the climate and the environmental justice movement.” In reality, Zero Hour is a far-left group that lists “capitalism” as one of the “systems of oppression” and “root causes of climate change.”

Skipping over that detail, Melvin wondered if the world was “doing enough” on climate change, to which Margolin ranted:

We have six years left, according to the best science, not six years to wait to take action on the climate crisis. Within six years, we have to have completely transformed our energy grid and be – like that’s the timeline we’re under. The science actually says that we have to get down to zero emissions by 2030, not zero emissions by 2050. So while I appreciate that the Biden administration is, like, you know, doing some things on the climate crisis, they actually aren’t matching with the best available science, because we need to be way more aggressive than what’s actually happening. And it’s not out of just choice. Like, these numbers – we don’t just get to pick them. It’s the science.

Rather than do the job of a journalist and actually challenge the ideological dogma being preached by his guest, Melvin instead invited her to lecture the media on how to better do the bidding of the far left: “You and I talked after you testified [before Congress] back in 2019….you said, ‘Thank you for finally listening to us.’ Do you think we’re doing a bit better, the media? Are we any better than we were a few years ago in at least sounding the alarm and raising awareness?”

The blatant climate change propaganda being pushed by MSNBC for years was still not enough for Margolin:

I think you guys could still do a little bit more. I feel like the climate crisis – the fact we are in an existential crisis where the climate crisis doesn’t exist in a vacuum separately from all other issues. And I feel like that is what the media needs to do better on reporting. You can’t just, like, separate, when you’re talking about COVID, when you’re talking about all these other issues, they do intertwine with environmental issues….So I feel like the media needs to do a bit of a better job of not addressing it like, “Okay, it’s Earth Day, so we’re gonna focus on climate change only because it’s Earth Day, so we’re checking that box.” But have it be something consistent that is talked about and how it interconnects with all of the other issues that we’re facing.

Melvin never considered that it wasn’t the job of the media to be part of a partisan political movement. Instead, he simply replied: “Fair, that’s fair.”

After letting Margolin lobby for the Green New Deal, Melvin wrapped up the friendly exchange by promising: “We’ll continue to do our part here.”

The liberal media are an extension of the left-wing base of the Democratic Party. Hosts like Melvin have no shame about that fact, they’re actually proud of their open advocacy.

MSNBC receiving its environmentalist marching orders was brought to viewers by Liberty Mutual and T-Mobile. You can fight back by letting these advertisers know what you think of them sponsoring such content.

Here is a full transcript of the April 22 segment:

11:36 AM ET

CRAIG MELVIN: Greta Thunberg testifying before the House Oversight Subcommittee on the Environment. The 18-year-old Swedish climate activist pushing for countries to do a lot more to fight climate change. And she’s also calling out world leaders, saying their pledges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are not enough. Here’s her warning.

GRETA THUNBERG: If you compare the current so-called “climate policies” to the overall current best available science, you clearly see that there’s a huge gap. The gap between what we are doing and what actually needs to be done in order to stay below the 1.5 degree Celsius target is widening by the second.

MELVIN: I want to turn now to Jamie Margolin. Jamie’s a climate activist, she’s also the co-founder and executive director of Zero Hour. It’s an organization that elevates young voices specifically in the conversation surrounding the climate and the environmental justice movement. Jamie, let’s just start with what we heard there from Greta Thunberg. You testified before Congress alongside Greta back in 2019, where you said the only thing that would change us is a whole new era. Do you agree with what we just heard there from Greta, what she’s saying now, are countries still not doing enough?

JAMIE MARGOLIN: 100%. What – there is in Union Square Park in New York, there’s a climate countdown clock which counts down the exact amount of time, roughly, that we have before it’s too late to solve the climate crisis. The countdown clock is at six years. We have six years left, according to the best science, not six years to wait to take action on the climate crisis. Within six years, we have to have completely transformed our energy grid and be – like that’s the timeline we’re under. The science actually says that we have to get down to zero emissions by 2030, not zero emissions by 2050. So while I appreciate that the Biden administration is, like, you know, doing some things on the climate crisis, they actually aren’t matching with the best available science, because we need to be way more aggressive than what’s actually happening. And it’s not out of just choice. Like, these numbers – we don’t just get to pick them. It’s the science. So I agree 100% with Greta.

MELVIN: You and I talked after you testified back in 2019. You told me that this was not a new issue. In fact, you said, “Thank you for finally listening to us.” Do you think we’re doing a bit better, the media? Are we any better than we were a few years ago in at least sounding the alarm and raising awareness?

MARGOLIN: I think you guys could still do a little bit more. I feel like the climate crisis – the fact we are in an existential crisis where the climate crisis doesn’t exist in a vacuum separately from all other issues. And I feel like that is what the media needs to do better on reporting. You can’t just, like, separate, when you’re talking about COVID, when you’re talking about all these other issues, they do intertwine with environmental issues. For example, with environmental injustice, what Deb Haaland said about the impact of the climate crisis falling disproportionately on communities of color, that’s the same with COVID. And so you see the climate crisis, which impacts people’s ability to breathe, impacting communities. And then because of pollution happening more in communities of color than in white and rich communities. And then there’s also a respiratory illness going on, so that’s double. The climate crisis is a threat multiplier. And so I feel like when COVID is being discussed, when all of these other issues, economic justice, social justice, everything is interlinked with the climate crisis. So I feel like the media needs to do a bit of a better job of not addressing it like, “Okay, it’s Earth Day, so we’re gonna focus on climate change only because it’s Earth Day, so we’re checking that box.” But have it be something consistent that is talked about and how it interconnects with all of the other issues that we’re facing.

MELVIN: Fair, that’s fair. The White House, as you probably know, says that we will reach the emissions goal the President just announced by targeting the biggest emitting business sectors, like power plants specifically. They plan to boost energy efficiency for homes and push for more electric cars and charging stations for those cars. Do you think that’s the best way to make real change?

MARGOLIN: I feel like we need to take that even – push that a step further. I’m a big proponent for the Green New Deal. I feel like that framework is something that needs to be passed and followed. Because the Green New Deal outlines, like I said when I testified before Congress in 2019, nothing has changed in the sense that – when I testified before Congress, I said that we need to bring about a new era of the Green New Deal, a new era of climate action, of transforming our society from one of extraction to one of sustainability. And I still believe that. And so I believe that we need to go further. We need to – I encourage everyone, it’s Earth Day, if you guys want to – some homework for everyone at home, is to read the Green New Deal. I feel like a lot of people don’t actually know what it says and there’s all of these myths. You know, Fox News, “Oh no, AOC is gonna take away your hamburgers.” No. Go online, read the Green New Deal, it’s very short and readable and it’s actually a very inspiring piece of legislation. I think that framework is what we need to follow and that’s what we need to push for. So everyone just Google, “Green New Deal PDF,” read it, educate yourself about it. It’s just – it’s being reintroduced and we really need to push for the passage of that.

MELVIN: Jamie Margolin, we always learn something from you, Jamie. Thank you for your time. We’ll have you on before the next Earth Day.

MARGOLIN: Sounds good. Thank you for having me.

MELVIN: We’ll continue to do our part here. Thank you.
