On the evening of March 31, Phelim McAleer was doing what he should be doing on Twitter: promoting his excellent movie Frack Nation, which serves as truth-detector to the lies in the eco-left agit-prop films Gasland and Gasland 2.
But Phelim’s Twitter activity was something Alec Baldwin just could not abide. Yes. That Alec Baldwin. The Real One.
Alec took to Twitter last night and challenged Phelim to debate so he could smite him in public. Alec suggested Phelim was a coward, and worse. In fairness, I should just let Alec’s tweets speak for themselves:
Seeing this, I jumped in on behalf of The Heartland Institute, which The Economist magazine — a publication the erudite Mr. Baldwin should admire — called “the world’s most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change”
A debate? Between Alec Baldwin and Phelim McAleer? We’d love it, and we’re experts at it, having done the climate debate thing from opposing sides before.
Mr. Baldwin, it’s to you: Any time, any place, and any rules. Heartland will cover all expenses. If you’re not comfortable with Heartland covering your expenses, you’re welcome to pay your own way to the debate. Just post. Phelim certainly seems game.
So, either Alec Baldwin really wants to debate Phelim McAleer … or he is full of it. In all honesty, we should all hope Alec Baldwin is more than just bluster when it comes to his beliefs — in himself, and his philosophy.
