Global Warming in the News

Via the Drudge Report today, two items that put the global warming debate in a new light:

  • Marc Morano documents the growing number of global warming scientists who have now become global warming skeptics, because the scientific evidence has forced them to that conclusion. “Many former believers in catastrophic man-made global warming have recently reversed themselves and are now climate skeptics. . . . Review the list of scientists below and ask yourself why the media is missing one of the biggest stories in climate of 2007.”
  • Meanwhile, April 2007 has gone into the record books as one of the coolest on record.

  1. You say April has gone into the record books as “one of the coolest on record.” But the link you provide states that it’s the 47th-coolest in 113 years. That’s hardly one of the coolest on record.

    And that link is for U.S. temperature only. According to data from NASA GISS, this April was the 2nd-HOTTEST ever.

    You definitely haven’t got the facts right. That puts your entire post in a whole new light.

  2. it appears that the goober above thinks that scientific data should be viewed just like the olympics where only first, second and third place matter. when you’re dealing with differences in temperatures that are sometimes within tenths of each other, it seems kind of ridiculous to declare that 47th out of 113 is “hardly one of the coolest on record.”

    and i’m no weatherman, but any fool can see that it’s easy to find evidence to back a claim, no matter what that might be. using global data as opposed to u.s. data doesn’t make your facts more “right” than anybody else’s. it just means it is what it is–global instead of national. just because the two don’t line up doesn’t mean the facts for either one aren’t right. again, it just means it is what it is–different sets of data showing different results. realistically, that’s the nature of science. get over it.
