Stephen Colbert Slams Mainstream Media for Lack of Climate Coverage

EcoWatch

This is a must see video from the Jan. 28 episode of The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert, on his segment The Word, examines the failures of mainstream media's coverage on climate change.

My favorite part:

"Yeah. What's the point of going to all that trouble if me and [CNN's] Erick Erickson won't be around to enjoy it? Sure, our grandkids will, but I don't want to be one of those grandpas who spoils the grandkids with a habitable planet."

"It's the same reason I will not buy life insurance. I get hit by a bus, and my family gets rich? Sorry, I don't want anybody happy at my funeral."
