So Fake It’s Real: Global Warming is Reality TV for the Media Elite

Several weeks ago the Akron Beacon Journal printed an article, charts included, which showed that the was a 1 degree increase in temperature over the past approx. 150 years. The article stood alone with no other articles on global warming on that day. Recently the ABJ published a huge OpEd piece reporting that, due to global warming, the worlds temperature had risen one degree over the previous twelve months. Anyone note the incongruity of these two articles? One cites recorded data over one and a half centuries. The other over twelve months--one year! Any student of the "science" of statistics is taught that no statistical model is of any validity until a minimum sample of three or more years is available for comparison purposes.

Yet the ABJ fails to address the conflicting stories, or the specious premise of the OpEd. My question: Why would that papers editors even print the Op-Ed when its facts were ludicrous in juxtaposition to the earlier article.

Well the answer is obvious; the ABJ--and world press--is in the tank for the GW crowd, and facts are not going to stand in their way.

Global warming is just another tool of the left to steal wealth from the industrialized nations and give it to the warlords of the third world, while impoverishing the west.

Do you have a link the the piece? You are correct that any single year's data would not constitute a sample. Not even three years would be enough given the variability in the data.

Unless it was really, really hot in Malibu one summer.

Here’s my challenge to all the global warming apologists:

Explain to me why the “settled science” of global warming has to manipulate headlines to make information appear scarier and more threatening than the actual data shows.

If global warming is so settled, why do you and your friends take the opportunity to exaggerate, obfuscate and slant every piece of news that comes out to make it seem relevant to today?       

You can see an example of this in the headlines below:
