Friends, over the past few months Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, multiple newspapers in the UK and Australia and of course Fox News have all been talking about how global warming has ‘slowed’, or ‘stopped’.
Some of the most stupid (or brazen) of these outlets’ sock puppets have even started claiming that the Earth is cooling.
The fact that this is bullshit, and people take it seriously, is annoying.
The fact that this particular bullshit is being hurled at us simultaneously in multiple forms is infuriating.
And this is especially true when one realises that it’s part of a pattern of obfuscation that the right wing has been using for decades.
