As Mr. Pinko reports at iOTW, one headline you will never see on USA Today is “BREAKING: Federal Report: Obama Affecting Americans’ Lives, Jobs.” But they are reporting something today that is much less believable and much more scandalously contrived.
Despite the fact that global average temperatures have remained stagnant for almost two decades, providing absolutely NO EVIDENCE of recent human-caused climate change, the just-released National Climate Assessment pulls out all the stops in blaming every bit of extreme weather in recent memory, whether hot or cold, on human-caused catastrophic climate change. The level of hysteria in the report is really quite alarming for anyone who has been paying attention to the technical aspects of the global warming debate over the last few decades. That hysteria is being reflected and amplified by a White House eager to blame its own catastrophic ineptitude on “climate,” and by an eager press.
One of the worst examples of this reporting is the USA Today “Breaking News” piece released today, illustrated in the screen shot from their website shown above. See for yourself. While you’re doing so, it might be worthwhile to note all of the Barack Obama-friendly tongue-bath sub-headings across the top of their page, including a helpful statement about how global warming will particularly affect the state of Iowa, which coincidentally, is a politically important state in the upcoming year-end election. How helpful. *eyeroll*
