Global Cooling Still Fake, Global Warming Still Real

Interesting article by the AP shooting down the theory that the Earth is cooling, which brings up a lot of questions about modern media.

In which section will newspapers put the story? Surely this story is more a political then science story.

Why does the AP feel the need to quote a self published researcher cherry picking data, when the whole point of the article is such practices are unscientific? It’s good they’re willing to call out distortions, but you really can’t justify quoting somebody that is just re-emphasizing the distortions.

Why exactly does Steven Levitt think reaching conclusions on a major issue (global temperatures) by “eyeballing” the numbers is OK? The whole ‘analyzing numbers’ thing is how he purports to make a living.
