'We Were Warned:' AP Touts Anniversary For Climate Change Activist
June 18th, 2018 4:49 PM
On Monday, the Associated Press launched a series of planned articles marking the 30th anniversary of former NASA scientist James Hansen's "opening salvo of the age of climate change," as Douglas Brinkley it. Seth Borenstein and Nicky Forster trumpeted how "we were warned" by Hansen's June 1988 congressional testimony, and underlined that "thirty years later, it’s clear that Hansen and other…
AP Hypes Harvey as Sign of 'More Intense Hurricanes in the Future'
August 29th, 2017 1:51 PM
Seth Borenstein touted in a Tuesday report for the Associated Press that some scientists believe that Hurricane Harvey is a "soggy, record-breaking glimpse of the wet and wild future that global warming could bring." Even after acknowledging that these climate researchers are "quick to say that climate change didn't cause Harvey and...haven't determined yet whether the storm was made worse by…
Not News: Study Claims It Invalidates EPA's Global Warming 'Finding'
July 6th, 2017 6:06 PM
A peer-reviewed research report published last week by three highly qualified researchers with the agreement of seven others similarly accomplished charges that the entities reporting historical and current worldwide temperatures have adjusted their data to show global warming which has not actually occurred. The trio has concluded that this data is "not a valid representation of reality," and…
AP's Latest Fable: Warming 'Will' Hit GDP of 'Poor, Southern' Counties
June 30th, 2017 10:36 PM
Seth Borenstein at the Associated Press and those pushing for radical wealth redistribution in the name of "climate change" just can't past their hysteria over President Donald Trump's unilateral decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. Trump's move reversed former President Barack Obama's unilateral decision to sign on. Borenstein's latest exercise in hyperbole on Thursday gave free…
AP Panics: Climate Change ‘Catastrophe’ After Exit From Paris Accord
June 22nd, 2017 3:01 PM
On Thursday, the Associated Press played up the supposed impact of President Donald Trump's decision to the withdraw from the Paris climate accord by underlining that "some island states may not survive through the next 100 years." The wire service touted officials from some of these countries, along with several "experts," who predicted "catastrophic" effects on these nations.
AP: U.S. Paris Climate Accord Pullout 'Doesn't Look Good For Earth'
May 31st, 2017 2:57 PM
Seth Borenstein's Saturday dispatch at the Associated Press on how it "Doesn’t look good for Earth" if the United States under President Trump "quits" the 2015 Paris climate is about as fakey as fake news gets. It's also sloppy and inconsistent in its terminology, and misleading about the nature and timing of what former President Obama's pledge would require the U.S. to do — while letting…
MSNBC's Ruhle: March for Science Was 'Nonpartisan' and 'Apolitical'
April 25th, 2017 1:23 PM
This year's annual far-left environmentalist Earth Day events were repackaged as "The March for Science." On Monday, despite weekend events' obvious agenda, MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle gleefully told viewers leading into a commercial break that "it wasn’t partisan," and that "the marches were apolitical."
AP Laments That Climate Change Debate Is 'Tribal,' 'Contentious'
August 16th, 2016 8:47 AM
The latest installment of the Associated Press's "Divided America" series on Monday focused on "climate change," aka "global warming." Not surprisingly, even though there are only 17 percent of Americans (allegedly "the fastest-growing group," which seems doubtful given that getting to that tiny minority level has required at least a quarter-century) who "are alarmed by climate change and want…
As Paris Talks Loom, AP Goes Full-Bore Over 'Trying to Save' Earth
November 30th, 2015 7:46 PM
From time to time over the past nine years, I have written about "globaloney," a shorthand term for the pseudo-science behind “climate change,” and “globalarmism” to describe the enviro-hysteria over "global warming" and the misguided public-policy prescriptions arising from that hysteria. Since the Paris climate talks have just begun, the press hysteria has reached a fever pitch. At the…
At AP, A Tortured 'Analysis' Estimating Deaths From VW Emissions Cheat
October 6th, 2015 10:37 AM
A story by Seth Borenstein at the Associated Press ("AP ANALYSIS: VW EVASION LIKELY LED TO DOZENS OF DEATHS"), originally published on Saturday but currently carrying a Monday morning time stamp, claimed that "Volkswagen's pollution-control chicanery" has been responsible for "killing between five and 20 people in the United States annually in recent years." Those results, based on an AP "…
At AP, Global Warming 'Deniers' and 'Skeptics' Are Now 'Doubters'
September 22nd, 2015 11:57 PM
In what appears to be a mixed result in the quest for clarity, the Associated Press has announced that its reporters and those who wish to adhere to its Stylebook guidelines will henceforth refer to those who don't worship at the altar of the global warming/climate change absolutists "doubters" instead of "deniers" and "skeptics." The specific change reads as follows: "To describe those who don’…
AP Notes No Hurricanes for 9 Years; But What About Global Warming?
May 31st, 2015 10:24 PM
In a report on the relative infrequency of hurricanes in the U.S. during the past decade nationwide, and many decades in certain coastal areas, the Associated Press's Seth Borenstein detected a problem. The problem is that those who contend that human-caused global warming is ruining our planet believe that hurricane frequency should be increasing, but it's not. So Borenstein tried to cover his…
AP: 'Conservatives Say They're Happy, But Liberals Show It'
March 12th, 2015 3:49 PM
In a writeup which shows that the wire service obviously hasn't studied the hateful examples of liberal-left hate collected by the Twitter curators at Twitchy.com, a Thursday afternoon Associated Press writeup claims that conservative "say" they're happy (with an implication that they don't really mean it), while liberals "show it" (supposedly meaning that they're genuine). The reporter assigned…
Sea Ice Hits Record, Warming 'Pause' Continues; Alarmists Hardest Hit
December 30th, 2014 5:36 PM
The Associated Press is obsessed with global warming. It currently has seven items at its national site containing that term. Two of them relate to how the U.S. is allegedly exporting more pollution, and therefore more global warming, to other countries even as it supposedly is cleaning up its act. These are the kinds of stories which the rest of the press would eagerly jump on if a Republican…
