A Dallas-based radio station is pitching in to fight climate change — by declaring all of its programming “carbon neutral.”

Salem Radio Network, a satellite radio station that carries conservative-leaning shows hosted by Mike Gallagher, Bill Bennett and others, mocked the White House’s dramatic “National Climate Assessment” on Tuesday and even changed its logo to reflect its so-called carbon-neutral status.

Tom Tradup, the station’s vice president of news and talk programming, said listening to carbon-neutral radio programming “may be the most important step Americans can take if they believe in the White House’s dire predictions.”

“We have determined, through an independent source, that SRN programming (including our talk shows and 24/7 newscasts) is, in fact, 100% carbon neutral and will not increase the carbon footprint of either radio stations carrying our programming or listeners who enjoy it,” Mr. Tradup said. “Essentially, listening to SRN creates a neutral or zero impact on the environment, in total compliance with White House guidelines.”

The Obama administration’s climate report predicts superstorms, droughts, rising sea levels and other consequences unless the U.S. takes serious action to combat global warming.
