Last night, it was Stephen Colbert's turn to mock Fox News for bashing the idea of climate change.

This country remains in the grip of the polar vortex, that today has brought New York temperatures into single digits, and wind chills of Why the hell does Colbert make us wait outside?

(wild audience cheering and applause)

Makes you stronger.  Put some hair on your chest.

Of course folks, science tells us that if it ever gets cold, global warming isn't real.  And that's not just me, folks.  That's also noted climatologist Donald Trump, who today tweeted "This very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop."

And, if there's one thing Trump knows, it's expensive bullshit.

(audience laughter and applause)

But if one day of below average temperatures doesn't make you question climate change, then maybe one minute of Fox & Friends will.

1/6/2014:

STEVE DOOCY: Talk about an inconvenient truth, wait until you hear how much Al Gore's book is selling for right now.

HEATHER NAUERT: There is a picture that's now circulating on Twitter, you can see this right here, and it shows the price of his book on the so-called global warming crisis.  Well, it's melted to just $1 dollar.  It's also labeled a super-buy.  Super-buy.  Hehe.  No word on exactly where this picture was taken.

Hahahahaha.  Well done!  All the best news reports end with, "I don't know where we got this."  Folks, this anonymous twitpic is a major story, because the only reason I ever believed global warming was real was because the Inconvenient Truth movie made a lot of money.  The market had spoken.  It's the same reason I believe in hunting children for sport.

(audience laughter)

We must crush her!

So logically, if this one copy of An Inconvenient Truth has been discounted, so have all of its findings.  Besides, what kind of science costs only a dollar, OK?  Other than those little pills that expand into spongy dinosaurs.

By the way, do not take those, they do not make your penis expand, OK?  Or, shaped like a T-Rex, OK?  It's false advertising.

This calls into question, folks, all low-cost books of any kind.  I mean, how could the Bible be true if they give it away for free in hotels?  I mean, maybe I shouldn't banish my wife to a tent during her time of blood.

And what about Steve Doocy for that matter?  On Amazon, you can buy a copy of his parenting book, Tales from the Dad Side, for just $0.01.

(audience laughter)

With prices that low, I have to question whether Steve Doocy can even father children!  You know what, Steve?  Try one of those little T-Rex pills.  They work.

Video below the fold.

Stephen then talked about the fight over income inequality, and how the Pope's angered some capitalists, with Father Jim Martin.
He then talked about research coming out of Michigan Tech where they tried to see if there were any time travelers in cyberspace.
Meanwhile, Jon looked at Colorado's legalization of marijuana, and the negative reaction to it coming from the likes of Bill O'Reilly and David Brooks, and where they fail in their arguments.
Stephen talked with Al Jazeera America anchor John Seigenthaler, and Jon talked with actor Steve Coogan.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
