Honestly, it's hard to summon the energy to respond to reportage as distorted as this. There's an enormous, well-funded propaganda mill out there that keeps churning these stories out and responding to them is like playing a game of Whack-a-Mole.

This particular story story seems to have been produced by the "Global Warming Policy Foundation." The GWPF is a conservative think tank headquartered within the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in London. In short, it's run by executives whose livelihoods revolve around the extraction and use of oil and coal.

As for the disinformation contained in the story, most of it is addressed by the two links I'll provide in my next post. (For whatever reason, IAB's software is mucking up the links when I try to add them to this first post.)

"I bet these two people below believed An Inconvenient Truth and the Hockey Stick graph."

Never watched it and don't know what that is. Why would I waste time watching something that tells me what to think? I guess that explains where you are coming from though. Let me guess big Glenn Beck fan?

The impression I get from the scientist that is showing this is that he has an axe to grind for being "cast out".

Either way a conservative newsgroup with a scientist that has reason to try and "get back" at the ones that wronged him = let logic work it's course and take the article for what its worth.

I appreciate the read though

Yeah, let's trust a conservative British tabloid. What's next an article from the Enquirer or an Op-ed from Ed Anger? Nice troll I mean try.

I will believe that when it is on something better then the Daily Mail. For a start, I am sure most people on this site knows that "global warming" isn't the globe getting warmer...

Link: Temp Refusing To Follow AGW Predictions [Pic+] [Rate Link] - It's now outside the predicted range entirely, in just a few years. Teh science = unsettled.
