[See NewsBusters for more.] Here’s the mentality of your average journalist when it comes to global warming: Casually suggest that “some people are ashamed to fly” because of climate change. That’s what CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil did on Thursday, lecturing Virgin Travel CEO Richard Branson. Talking about the Paris Climate Accords, Dokoupil scolded, “The Biden administration has announced that America will reenter those accords to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gases. Your industry, travel, is the single greatest emitter of greenhouse gases.” He then lectured the job creator, “Some people are ashamed to fly because they think it's such a problem. You make money that way. What do you want the Biden administration to do to address the problem. What are you willing to do to address the problem?”
