There’s a climate war going on at the Colbert Report and we’re waiting in the trenches to see who wins!

On Tuesday’s show, Stephen held a “Science Catfight” about climate change with Joe Bastardi, chief Accuweather forecaster, and Brenda Ekwurzel, a climatologist at the Union of Concerned Scientists. There seems to be a general disagreement about climate change among climatologists and meteorologists, and Stephen wanted to see who’s point was stronger.

Colbert introduced the segment by using his master logic to deduce, “On February 6 it was 10 degrees. Today it hit almost 80. At this rate, by August it will be 220 degrees.”

And with that the debate began.

We think the climatologist kicked the meteorologist’s ass? What do you think? Check out the video below and tell us who’s side your on.

    i think the best point was that we will know whether climate change is a crock in a few years because the oceans have been warm in recent years and are cooling a bit. If the temperatures continue to rise in the next few years as carbon levels rise then we will know.
