Why Is This News?

By November 30, 2006Global Warming

Comes now a lefty enviro group with a study about you-know-what in New York state. And somehow it earns an AP story.

As with every other story on global warming, the lead lefty enviro is quoted as saying, “We’ve gotten beyond questioning the science on this.” Well, of course you have. Certainly Al Gore has. It’s so much easier to declare the debate over than to try to win the debate in the face of all the contrary opinions.

And so we ask again: Why does a predictable study from a partisan group merit a story? Why are they so quick to dismiss the opposing views and in the Eliot Spitzer era, what else is New York going to do to run business out of the state?
