From the Herald Sun:
A TOP-rating US radio host and political commentator has joined the Herald Sun‘s Andrew Bolt in lamenting the “global climate change delusion”.
Rush Limbaugh, an influential voice in US conservative circles through his nationally-syndicated radio talk show, today quoted Bolt‘s recent column on climate change entitled ‘Doomed to a fatal delusion’.
After quoting the article at length, Limbaugh echoed Bolt’s sentiments, criticising “fraudulent polar bear pictures”, and quoting graphs and charts that claim temperatures have fallen and Arctic ice has remained constant.
Limbaugh has been credited with reviving AM radio in the United States through his radio show, and was described by Ronald Reagan as “the number one voice for conservatism in our country”.
. . .
Of course this is not the first time one of Andrew Bolt’s columns has captured the attention of American talk-radio guys. Neal Boortz discussed his column on global warming and other assorted predicted catastrophes, “Welcome to my nightmare,” and Limbaugh discussed another one of Bolt’s other columns back in July ’07 as well (transcript).
Well worth a look & a listen.
UPDATE: Now Australian talk-radio guy Darryn Hinch has now announced that he has “joined the ‘Andrew Bolt School’ of climate change” (audio). Who’ll be next to distance themselves from the Catastrophic Man Made Global Warming Hysteria Mob, I wonder.
UPDATE #2: And as reader The Dean of Doonside in comments points out to a Bolt detractor, Limbaugh’s listenership (approx 20 million) is about the same as the entire population of Australia – not to mention that he has just signed a nice new $400 million deal.
UPDATE #3: Bolt is also quoted extensively in a piece on a US Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works site.
