Networks Do 92 Climate Change Stories; Fail to Mention ‘Lull’ in Warming All 92 Times
Extracts from article by Julia A. Seymour
- Recent years’ slowdown in global warming completely ignored by networks 92 climate change stories in 2013.
- Stories citing experts or the latest studies promoting alarmism get covered more than 8 times as often as critical experts and studies.
- Although many scientists say no, ABC, CBS and NBC continue to link weather events like tornadoes, hurricanes, heat waves and more to climate change nearly one-fourth of the time. "
"Just since Jan. 1, 2013, ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news programs have aired 92 stories about “climate change” or “global warming.” Not a single one of those stories mentioned the “warming plateau” reported even by The New York Times on June 10. The Times wrote, “The rise in the surface temperature of earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.” Even though the Times piece wasn't published until June 10, a warming slowdown had been reported by foreign media outlets in November 2012, and by The Economist online in March, Reuters in April and BBC online in May of 2013."
