Dear Media, to avoid committing media malpractice, if you invite someone on your show to talk about #climate & they say:
"The climate has always changed."
You must immediately say "No, we understand all observed warming is now human caused, overwhelming any natural changes."
If they say "It's cold out"
You must immediately say:
You're confusing "weather" and "climate." The world as a whole is warming. One cold day in one place doesn't disprove global climate science.
If they say "The scientists are only in it for the money" you have two choices:
Say either "Scientists get paid far less than fossil fuel lobbyists & climate deniers, & whatever they're paid has no effect on the validity of the science."
Or call me for a "Fuck you" response.
And if they say "I'm not a scientist, but..."
Shut them down immediately and then please ask your bookers "WHY DIDN'T YOU BOOK A SCIENTIST?"
