Paul Ingrassia, deputy editor at Reuters is being chastised for the reduction in coverage on global warming, which is down 50% since he has taken over. David Fogarty, a former climate correspondent , wrote an article pointing this out with the claim that Ingrassia confided to him that he was skeptical.
Since then, Ingrassia has been attacked by George Soros’ Think Progress and Media Matters as well as the Guardian and Mother Jones. They accuse him of going against science and Fogarty also chided him for not listening to Barack Obama, who he calls an expert on global warming.
Interestingly, this story got hot just as the US was beginning to cool off. In one week the high tempertures set a record in 173 cities across the nation. On the other hand, there were 1122 low records set in the same time frame. The fact that there has been no warming since 1995 has not deterred global warming alarmists. Even when it comes from one of their own, Phil Jones of the Climategate scandal.
Reuters is not alone in their tapering of global warming news. Even the most stalwart of their ranks have cut back considerably. The Guardian has cut coverage by 21% and the venerable New York Times has cut coverage by 15%. In fact the NYT has closed it’s environmental desk and have ended their “Green Blog”.
The past few years have seen the global warming models fall by the wayside as scientists struggle to explain why their predictions have not come to fruition. `They were not helped by an experiment by CERN, the most prestigious scientific organization in the world, who by the way openly promote that global warming is real.
For a long time, the argument between believers and skeptics was whether the sun, specifically, sunspot activity caused the earth to be bombarded with cosmic rays, which would promote cloud growth, and thus lower temperatures.
Cern built a duplicate of Earth’s environment and added cosmic rays, which made clouds grow bigger by tenfold. It is also interesting to note that the low temperatures mentioned before occured at a time when extreme sunspot activity was happening.
Global warming scientists have tred softly as far as criticism of Cern, on the revelation from CERN, who is known for it’s development of the Internet, the building of the Large Hadron Collider, and the discovery of the Higgs boson, also known as the God particle4 responsible for the beginning of our solar system.
