NYT TELLS GORE TO COOL IT ON GLOBAL WARMING ALARMISM. AND IN A TWO-FER: GLOBAL WARMING EXPEDITION CALLED OFF DUE TO FREEZING TEMPERATURES

The mainstream media have NEVER included a caution when describing Gore’s global warming “work.” Til now. Why is that? I thought this was “settled science”? I thought there was “concensus”? But the fact is there never has been and the NYT’s favorites are looking pretty stupid right now because there IS NO settled science on global warming and the people who have been systematically calling them on their misinformation are, at long last, being HEARD! The voices of dissent such as George Taylor’s–who by the way doesn’t dispute warming just HOW it’s caused–have always been out there but because of Gore’s status as a rock star among the blue bloods those voices of caution and dissent have been HUSHED. You have my permission to blame the media.

Here’s the NYT Monday:

Hollywood has a thing for Al Gore and his three-alarm film on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth,” which won an Academy Award for best documentary. So do many environmentalists, who praise him as a visionary, and many scientists, who laud him for raising public awareness of climate change.

But part of his scientific audience is uneasy. In talks, articles and blog entries that have appeared since his film and accompanying book came out last year, these scientists argue that some of Mr. Gore’s central points are exaggerated and erroneous. They are alarmed, some say, at what they call his alarmism.

“I don’t want to pick on Al Gore,” Don J. Easterbrook, an emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University, told hundreds of experts at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. “But there are a lot of inaccuracies in the statements we are seeing, and we have to temper that with real data.”


REST OF THE STORY HERE.

MINNEAPOLIS – A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.
