Patrick Michaels: The Dinosaur Media Prematurely Bury Climate Warming Skeptics — Again JunkScience.com

The dinosaur media are—yet again—reporting the death of climate skeptics because of the latest, greatest paper published by Nature magazine. Increases of dreaded carbon dioxide appear to have preceded the warming that initiated human civilization.

More sloppiness (polite term) found in the latest pride of “Nature” magazine JunkScience.com

CO2 found it frustrating at first that Antarctica always anticipated his moves, until Dr. Shakun explained to him that this mysterious teleconnection proves that CO2 controls the universe.

You know that science has reached a pinnacle, when scientists embark on a study who’s primary purpose is to bolster Al Gore, and it gets through peer review.
