Beyond the Headline

The Weather Channel published an article with the provocative title “Startling Number of Scientific Papers Disputed Human-Caused Global Warming Last Year.”

From that title, wouldn’t you expect some revelations of hoaxes and bunkum? If one’s a denier, Wouldn’t this incite slobber for the details of how said hoax was being pulled off? At the very least, wouldn’t you want to read on to find out exactly how many papers there were?

Want to guess? Ten percent? Twenty?

Oh, just read the article. It’s a lot better than the headline would suggest.

Alas, I suspect the typical denier will stop with the headline. It’s so easy to be encouraged when one doesn’t read much else.
