The song remains the same on the air when it comes to Big Media claims about “hot air.”
Radio giant Rush Limbaugh sang that tune Monday by flashing back to a “Good Morning America” promotion for an ABC program titled “Earth 2100” that aired in the fall of 2008.
Citing reporting by the Media Research Center, Limbaugh played a portion of ABC’s trailer for the show, which broadcast the alleged imminent dangers of so-called global warming or climate change — which is now often called “extreme weather” or “severe weather” — and its purportedly catastrophic impact on the United States by 2015.
The promo opened with the on-screen statement: “Rome fell. Maya civilization disappeared. Easter Island collapsed. Are we next?”
