Good Morning Alarmists

I happened to catch this segment on GMA this morning and was pretty alarmed — not just by the alarmist rhetoric, but by some of the things that GMA reported as fact. Before anyone accuses me of being an environmental ostrich, all I am asking is to have a few words added to most global warming stories. Words like “believed by many” or “estimated” would do for starters. Instead, it is often declared that scientists say or warn us, about things that “will” happen, rather than “many” scientists say it is “possible.” You can read the GMA report at Newsbusters, but my “alarm” went off when I heard that temperatures are the warmest in a million years. Just exactly how accurate were the thermometers 999,999 years ago anyway? I sure would like to get hold of one of them because we have several in our home and vehicles and they rarely ever all say the same thing. I pass three time and temperature signs in a one mile stretch on the way to Wal-Mart and the temps generally vary a few degrees. I am sure those caveman thermometers were accurate within hundreths of a degree though.
