By April 20, 2007Global Warming

Sorry, we were on the road today or we would have posted sooner on this whopper from the WaPo, a new poll out that shows that “a growing number” of Americans see global warming as a growing threat. Well, of course they do. As we noted in this space, an article in the NY Times last year by the respected Andy Revkin noted that most folks listed it pretty close to the bottom of their concerns. However, a constant drumbeat and one Oscar later, voilà! Mark us down as skeptical. There is no consensus, context is everything.

By the way, what is the proper temperature of the earth…?
