Pat Sajak of "Wheel of Fortune" fame has stirred up controversy after expressing frustration with climate change alarmists on Twitter.

E! Online pointed out that Sajak is no stranger to trolling liberals, having done so to desired effect time after time.

He himself admitted as much just a few days later.

Based on his other tweets, the game show host and Ricochet.com contributor clearly takes issue with climate scientists' models for predicting future temperatures, which failed to forecast a 16-year hiatus in global warming, according to a report from the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Sajak's irreverent jokes had the desired effect on Salon's Daniel D'Addario, who wrote fumingly of his "unhinged," "wild," "incendiary" remarks. 

The Atlantic Wire's Adam Chandler caught on to the joke, and gathered and categorized a number of Sajak's tongue-in-cheek tweets by political issue, calling them crotchety, smarmy, and paranoid. He then attempted to criticize the media's coverage of the tweets, saying the story was "totally unremarkable" and asking "who cares?" yet he, too, seemed to be sufficiently irked.

Jason Samenow of The Washington Post tsk-tsk'd Sajak, writing, "He obviously missed my post calling for more constructive climate change discussions."

Despite, nay, likely because of, the finger-wagging media, Sajak continues to tweet on, seemingly well-aware of the context in which he's operating.
