Turning the climate crisis into a TV love child of Jerry Springer and Judge Judy | The Guardian

In the United States, people who refuse to accept even some of the basic tenets of climate science are calling for a heated debate.

“Who better to do that than a group of scientists … getting together and having a robust discussion for all the world to see,” the boss of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, told Reuters.

And, of course, Pruitt thinks it should be on the telly.

“You want this to be on full display,” he said. “I think the American people would be very interested in consuming that. I think they deserve it.”

That’s right. Pruitt’s respect for climate science would see it reduced to a bastard TV love child of Jerry Springer and Judge Judy.
