New York Times Challenges Global Warming Supporters

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 1, 2008

Yep, the whole thin is starting to crack, and even the Times is whacking at the greenie weenies:

Today’s interpreters of the weather are what social scientists call availability entrepreneurs: the activists, journalists and publicity-savvy scientists who selectively monitor the globe looking for newsworthy evidence of a new form of sinfulness, burning fossil fuels.

A year ago, British meteorologists made headlines predicting that the buildup of greenhouse gases would help make 2007 the hottest year on record. At year’s end, even though the British scientists reported the global temperature average was not a new record – it was actually lower than any year since 2001 – the BBC confidently proclaimed, “2007 Data Confirms Warming Trend.”

When the Arctic sea ice last year hit the lowest level ever recorded by satellites, it was big news and heralded as a sign that the whole planet was warming. When the Antarctic sea ice last year reached the highest level ever recorded by satellites, it was pretty much ignored. A large part of Antarctica has been cooling recently, but most coverage of that continent has focused on one small part that has warmed.

Well, the New York Times has given me a let Christmas Gift!

It must suck to be a follower of the Global Warming Religion.

    Right on, but haven’t you noticed that it’s no longer “Global Warming”, it’s “Climate Change” just to cover their asses… Climate Change means *gasp* Weather…

    Anyway happy new year to you… And we could certainly use some of that Global Warming right now, it’s rather cold here 🙂
