Global warming zinger in CBS “The Good Wife”
I was just watching the episode “The Art of War” in the drama “The Good Wife” on CBS and was shocked to see this very pointed put down about climate skeptics.
Scene: A judge is being seated at the bench in a Cook County Courtroom.
The judge (Judge Abernathy played by Denis O’Hare) sits, and then announces to the courtroom.
Thank you for being here on this exceptionally warm November day. I suppose it goes without saying, Global Warming 1, skeptics 0.
The episode will likely be available online tomorrow, and if so I’ll add a link here.
I think perhaps the Hollywood producers or writing staff might have a burr under their saddle about the global warming issue not being front and center anymore, and while some TV shows and movies offer “gratuitous sex” this seems to be a case of a “gratuitous global warming schtick”.
I do. The data says exactly the opposite of what the zinger implies. Yes I know, its fiction, but they’ve opened the door on creative license.
From Fox News Chicago:
The average low temperature for October was 42.4 degrees which is -0.4 below normal.
Therefore, the average temperature for the month was 51.5 degrees exactly 1.0 degree cooler than normal.
