Colbert Mocks Limbaugh, Carlson, Doocy Over Their Global Warming Denials

On the show The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert mocked Rush Limbaugh for claiming that the heat index is a government conspiracy, joking:

The heat index is just more big government numbers telling you how hot to feel — just like their time index tells you how sleepy to feel.

He also mocked Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson for claiming that a recent episode of SpongeBob SquarePants was “pushing a global warming agenda” and falsely suggesting that there is doubt within the scientific community about whether or not global warming is man-made.
