Please mod this up. I think there is a serious lack of understanding about real world conditions which drive this. Also, working one less hour is not really an option for a lot of people--you work what your boss tells you need to work.

Global Warming: George Will is an Idiot

kj_kabaje kj_kabaje writes  |  more than 5 years ago

kj_kabaje (1241696) writes "George Will (Washington Post) wrote a column claiming that Steven Chu and the scientific community are wrong about global warming. He states that "Real calamities [economic ones] take our minds off hypothetical ones [global warming]." He goes on to say "according to the U.N. World Meteorological Organization, there has been no recorded global warming for more than a decade, or one-third of the span since the global cooling scare." I'm not a climatologist, but a quick search shows that the U.N. World Meteorological Organization states that global warming continues over the 160 year trajectory.
I'd like to entreat geeks around the world to write George and kindly tell him he is an idiot. Use your own text or borrow mine:

Dear George,

Please cite your figures and sources of information. Your column and it's argument might hold merit if perhaps you cited accurately. A quick internet search for the World Meteorological Organization and Global Warming indicates that you have at least one erroneous argument (http://www.wmo.int/pages/mediacentre/news/index_en.html) in your column. Cherry-picking a few studies from 40 years ago whose theories have not come to fruition does not equate to dissolving the current properderance of evidence which indicates that the global warming is in all likelihood happening. Until such time as I can be convinced that your journalistic efforts have well-researched and well-sourced information behind them, I shall regard your column and any pieces you write as fallacious diatribe with baseless and useless information. I ask that the Washington Post invite a knowledgeable person to write about global warming and retract your statements.

Sincerely,

Your Name
