Fox News Attacks Environmentalist Spongebob Squarepants {Video}

In particular, Fox & Friends attacked SpongeBob for an episode in which the role of human emissions (or at least SpongeBob and Mr. Krab’s emissions) of carbon dioxide in global warming is made clear — a scientific fact well understood for over a century. Fox’s Steve Doocy acknowledges that the planet is warming; but doesn’t understand why. He says “the big question is, ‘is it manmade, or is it just one of those gigantic climatic phases that we’re going through.’” A colleague says “It’s unproven science.” But for Gretchen Carlson, it isn’t enough that the show tackled an issue of public concern, she just doesn’t understand SpongeBob at all. She said “it’s hard to even follow sometimes,” while another commentator is heard saying “I don’t get it.”
