- India Withdraws from IPCC
- Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995
- Climate scientists who play fast and loose with the facts are imperiling not just their profession but the planet.
At that link Joe Romm objects to the story, but I think the headline is far more destructive and misleading than the story.
- Climate-Change Debate Is Heating Up in Deep Freeze.
- Even the AGU itself gets in on the act: No rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide in past 160 years, new research finds.
There's a persistent pattern of climate stories where the headline or subhead does not actually match the story. It seems to me that the headline is the most important part of a story. I am led to understand that the person writing the headline is usually not the person writing the story. It appears that there is absolutely zero accountability for this process; even the very modest consequences that go to uncorrected bad reporting and bad punditry don't seem to accrue to bad headlines.
This loophole has got to go.
Anybody have more examples? Let's make a collection.
