Can’t Make This Stuff Up

This is just too easy. From Drudge:

  1. Come on Geoff, we all know what’s going on here. Right-leaning is using a certain situation to dispel fears of global warming. We all know that one snow storm doesn’t mean global warming is a liberal hoax. However, many politicaly-nearsighted individuals will use this witty snippet to bolster their personal rejection of global warming without doing any honest research on the matter. Others who may be completely uninformed will credit this headline as evidence against global warming in and of itself. This is sensationalism at its worst. It is a shame that this is the top headline of such a well read news bulletin. Drudge is clearly using the meaningless irony to advance its own agenda.

  2. Josh – As you may know, I am skeptical of the human induced connection to climate change. I am more than happy to pay for a cleaner atmosphere, but only because I like it cleaner – not because I think we’re warming it up.

    However, you are totally correct as far as Drudge is concerned. The concern is climate. He is talking about weather. They are two different things.

    Drudge tends to be very weather oriented. He uses lots of weather stories.

    It’s still funny.

  3. Agreed. It’s mildly humorous. I’m merely asserting that a better place for this headline would be on the Jay Leno show. Notice if you click the link there’s absolutely no story, just a brief reiteration of the title. How this “news” was deemed most notable is bewildering, especially in the wake of our recent agreement with North Korea. Again, Druge is too widely read to be this irresponsible.
