In the Irish Independent article Ice shelves prove climate change
there is a perfect example of a Climate Change Journalist (CCJ) doing his utmost to use the bad science to full effect.
This is the opening extract: -
The latest research findings from the British Antarctic Survey (www.antarctica.ac.uk) show that the Wilkins Ice Shelf (the size of Northern Ireland) is about to break from the Antarctic Peninsula because of rising temperatures due to man-made global warming.
After this the reader is then hit with....
While sceptics of man-made global warming may see this as just another example of scare-mongering by scientists, environmentalists and people with their head screwed on straight, the evidence is there to see for anyone who is open-minded enough to look. But of course, that would involve taking one's head out of the sand first.
What I do not understand with this assault on CO2 Sceptics, is that the CCJ did not make any effort to mention the general decline in World Global Temperatures since 1998. I guess if he did, he would then have to give a reason why this area of the planet has warmed whilst the rest of the Earth has cooled! The fact is the cooling we have in other parts or the world have not been reported back to the public in the same way as this location.
Its this sort of journalism that has made so many people confused on Climate Change, yes we have HAD "Climate Change Warming"
it peaked in 1998, but try telling that to the CCJ, his job depends on "Man Made Climate Change", and a story involving warming pays his bills!
He seems to want you to think global warming is still going on and you will fry if you pollute the world with CO2. The fact is, we are going to resume to a lower Global Average Temperature over the next 20 years with or without Man made pollution, the Sun is the driver our climate and not man.
It would be far more informative if we could read an article from a journalist who stands up to say do not pollute the food and air we breathe, rather then say we are all going to fry as a result of Man Made pollution.
