Colbert explains climate change as only Colbert can

As part of our commitment to keeping Fridays a little lighter here at the DeSmogBlog, check out this bit by Stephen Colbert and his hilarious show the Colbert Report . Now please keep in mind where Colbert is coming from in his show, for those not in the loop, Colbert uses satire to highlight how ridiculous US media (read: Fox News) has become. Enjoy, and please don't take this seriously, it's Friday!

A Response from "the Imam of anti-corporatist fundamentalism"

I am still stammering at the offensive, incompetent and hysterical goofiness of Terence Corcoran's diatribe yesterday in the  Financial Post.

I have a longish list of complaints and objections, but let me present just two here today.

First, the suggestion that I have an anti-corporate bias is silly. (And the implicit anti-Islamic characterization is, at the very least, racially offensive.) For the past 25 years, I have been running a nicely successful public relations business, which itself is incorporated. I have been doing all those things that corporations do: paying rent, paying taxes, paying employees, participating in the economy in a direct way (rather than as a voyeur) - and giving the best advice I can think of to other corporations.
