Reporting the climate crisis: A form of hysteria

Here's another example of a media outlet offering self-evident misinfomation in the face of both the data of the past decade and the immediate experience of people in their daily lives right now.

Despite the nation experiencing its tenth straight year of temperatures cooler than 1998's peak, and much of New England experiencing its worst ice storm in decades (video embedded), the Associated Press published one of the most hysterical articles concerning global warming I've ever seen. In writer Seth Borenstein's view, climate change is "a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can't avoid." "Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it."

For those that can stand it, here are some of Borenstein's
disgraceful lowlights.
