On The Lies The Media Tell, Global Warming Edition
I'm an out and proud skeptic when it comes to global warming alarmism. This horrifies some of my more liberal friends who are convinced that each of these 882 (frequently contradictory) items on the hilarious Warm List are caused by global warming.
But check out this Associated Press story that admits no science was used for an entire story about how the recent heat wave, while not actually due to global warming, could have been caused by global warming:
If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks.
Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.
These are the kinds of extremes climate scientists have predicted will come with climate change, although it's far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will they say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.
And it goes on and on and on to describe all the things that could happen from global warming. As someone on Twitter put it: "Shorter AP: No evidence that global warming is the cause of recent heat wave. That said, global warming is the cause."
