Barton gives his opinion on-air in a feature he calls, “Neal Barton’s POV.” In his Friday POV he attacked global warming by quoting a former NASA scientist Les Woodcock who thinks climate change is a scam used by big business to make money. KETK won’t allow embedding, so you’ll have to click here to watch the video.
Barton told viewers of the Tyler, TX, NBC affiliate “You won’t hear this in the mainstream media.” But Barton’s opinions seem to have come directly from an article about Woodcock in the Yorkshire Evening Post.
He left out one part, though. The article also said of Woodcock, “In spite of the seemingly overwhelming tide of scientific opinion on the matter, there are still some who steadfastly refuse to jump on the ‘global warming’ bandwagon.”
Barton has also taken to twitter to defend himself against a detractor.
.@KETK_NealBarton ah yes, those evil money-grabbing scientists, set against those bastions of virtue, petrochemical companies. Common sense?
