Breaking News: Justice Department Expected To Indict Star of Sunday’s Years of Living Dangerously Episode 3

You’ve probably heard about Years of Living Dangerously, the big-budget, nine-part documentary on the supposedly dire threat posed by global warming.

Part three airs this Sunday on Showtime, and it stars Republican Representative Michael Grimm (NY). The story arc follows Rep. Grimm’s conversion from global warming skeptic to believer. In a nutshell, here’s the plot: Grimm had been a denier, but then he talked to former South Carolina Representative Bob Inglis,* and now he’s really scared of climate change.


This afternoon, only 48 hours before Rep. Grimm was to take his star turn on episode three of Years of Living Dangerously, Politico Breaking News sent out the following headline: “Michael Grimm Expected To Be Indicted.” Reportedly, the charges will include mail and wire fraud. What versatility! Denier, alarmist, mail fraudster, wire fraudster–what role can’t he play?

Snark aside, I think it’s safe to say that Rep. Grimm’s credibility has been damaged. By extension, the same can be said for this week’s episode of Years of Living Dangerously.

*Rep. Bob Inglis was defeated in a Republican primary in June 2010, by a 79 to 21 percent margin. Inglis’s defeat was widely attributed to his previous support for a carbon tax.
