Lou Holtz On Sean Hannity Talking About Global Warming
Media, Dumbass

Lou Holtz: Global Warming Expert

3/4/09 in Media   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

During the time period between the Super Bowl and March Madness, things tend to get a little slow, which is exactly why Lou Holtz would wind up on FOX News talking about global warming with Sean Hannity. Because if anyone knows anything about global warming, it's a blowhard TV show host and a former Notre Dame football coach.

 
Forget the fact that everyone who has an ounce of credibility in the scientific community is fully convinced that global warming is indeed happening, why is Lou Holtz on FOX News talking about anything? I can't even understand him when he's on ESPN. Also unexplained, how Stephen A. Smith once wound up on CNN defending atheists (although he's clearly the sanest of the 3 people debating).
 

And people wonder why no one respects 24-hour news stations. When you're trotting out guest speakers such as Lou Holtz and Stephen A. Smith, it's kind of hard to take anything seriously anymore.

Lou Holtz proves there's no global warming [
Awful Announcing]

maybe we need to take it seriously.......everyone knows they are expert,i think it`s time for us to do something for our planet.....to prevent that GLOBAL WARMING!!!!

Quite an impressive thread...but unless it causes golf courses to turn to dust and the ice in hockey rinks to melt....I don't think this is really the place to discuss global warming

I honestly have no opinion on this one way or another, but can scientists really determine that; 1) there's actually global warming, and it's not just a cyclical weather pattern that's been going on for millions of years, and 2) it's irrefutably been determined that it's man-made?

I'm no expert, by any stretch, but that seems VERY hard to believe. At the same time, the people who comment on the snow outside and try to use that as evidence AGAINST global warming are also idiots.

But while it's obvious that one day of snow doesn't refute global warming, who's to say that a mere few generations of warming PROVE global warming theories? How do we know that his hasn't happened thousands of times in the past, before we had accurate means to track things like this?

Both sides are retarded if they think they really KNOW, one way or the other, in my opinion.

I'm not pretending to be an expert either.  However, I would imagine that over the past 30+ years that the non-Global Warming camp would've came up with some scientific information that would at least partially refute Global Warming.  That hasn't happened.  Science has been wrong before, but its very rare and they certainly know more than us common folk.

Considering there are no peer-reviewed articles in science journals refuting man made global warming, is there really any other position on global warming?  Global Warming isn't really debatable.  What to do about it is.

Well, while something tells me that Al Gore has spent a little more time researching global warming than Lou Holtz, you seem to be forgetting here that regardless of who the blowhard is, it's universally agreed upon in the credible scientific community that global warming is happening.

You anti-global warming people are hilarious, you're like the people who burned scientists at the stake because they had the crazy notion that the earth revolves around the sun.

Al Gore hasn't "researched" anything, except a way to make himself relevant to the media. Pretty easy to predict something noone will be alive to see or to know if you were right or wrong...
Go ahead and pq me author. You Global Warmers are all ways against any other point of view.

When it comes to talking entertainingly about something he knows nothing about, Lou Holtz will never be in John Madden's league.

WRONG!  Turn down the Sheryl Crow and face your 8 x10 glossy pic of actor/activist Ed Begley Jr to the wall, because It is actually pictures and readings from the Mars Global Surveyor satellite and Odyssey missions documenting the Martian climate change and taking pictures of ice turning to water on the Martian surface (hence we now know water is there) and not the maverick NASA scientist you refer to.  NASA itself has no official explanation for Mars warming.  According to National Geographic magazine in 2007, the problem is that the sun enters maximums and minimums cyclically and heats up the planets. No one doubts things are warming up, the thing is we ain't sure man has anything to do with it.  By the way, Jupiter is warming too according to satellites.  So I'm guessing you trust your researchers who misplaced an artic ice sheet the size of California and had to sheepishly withdraw their artic ice emergency global warming claims last week?

My comments had nothing to do with whether i believe in global warming or not. My comments were strictly about the qualifications of the "Celebrities" who make the comments. Al Gore is no more of a scientist than Lou Holtz. They both, more than likely, get their info from one side of the argument. Leave the scientific crap to the scientist and the Al Gores' and Lou Holtzs' can keep their opinions to themselves. My other point is slam everyone who's NOT qualified, not just a couple of people just because you don't like them.

He shows up on CNN occasionally to talk about, well, almost anything you can imagine. I don't watch CNN, but still, it must be strange to be sitting around and suddenly there's Stephen A, talking about the election results in Mississippi.

He's a pretty intelligent fellow, he just does a Rasho Nesterovic-like way of conveying that knowledge.

So the whole scientific community is moronic?

All i have to say is if Al Gore is an "EXPERT" on global warming, why can't Lou Holtz be one. What's the freaking' difference? Everyone's slamming Lou, you hypocrites seem to forget the other "EXPERT" blowhards who constantly chime in about crap they know nothing about. Either shut up and leave Lou alone or include all the other morons who never know what they're talking about.

Al Gore is an expert on Global Warming because he had dedicated his life to the cause. I would say someone that has 3 books, a documentary, and a Nobel Prize for the cause of Global Warming would be considered an expert.  Lou Holtz is about as much of an environmental expert as Al Gore is at coaching college football. So I guess, in short, you need to shut up.

Other than maybe, you know, real scientists who actually spend their whole careers studying this.  They might, but just by a little bit, be more qualified.
