Hot Air follow up to AP’s shameless global warming lies
Posted by Liberty on December 17, 2008
Fellow news junkies, remember the AP story from December 14 on global warming by Seth Borenstein?
“When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore. Now it is a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can’t avoid.”
This story has been criticized for it’s blatant bias and factual inaccuracy and finally, that criticism is seeing the light of day. From Hot Air blog:
They have a few quotes from actual scientists [note: Al Gore is not a scientist, Mr. Borenstein] debunking this ridiculous article. Also, from Fox News:
“Scientists skeptical of the assertion that climate change is the result of man’s activites are criticizing a recent Associated Press report on global warming, calling it ‘irrational hysteria, ‘horrifically bad’ and ‘incredibly biased.’
They say the report, which was published on Monday, contained sweeping scientific errors and was a one-sided portrayal of a complicated issue.”
