Desperate flat-earthers use Nazi analogy (video)

Fox's Dayside let oil-industry shill Sterling Burnett blabber on and on about "other factors" and bad data (citing none of either) in refuting global warming predictions. Burnett then proceeded to spout this practiced, but no less pernicious, bit of bile, via John Amato [VIDEO]:

You don't go see Joseph Goebbels films to see the truth about Nazi Germany. You don't go see Al Gore films to see the truth about global warming...
Fortunately, the National Wildlife Federation's Jeremy Symons got this in just under the bell:
Symons: Sterling is an odd one to be casting aspersions on what Al Gore's motives are, after all the oil industry has been giving him hundreds of thousands of dollars to his organization, just like tobacco companies used to do to try undercut...
It's barely worth noting that Global Warming is disputed by very few scientists (or governments for that matter) on the planet Earth. (Crooks&Liars)
