The Sunday paper gets smart on global warming.

The Sunday paper insert pseudo-mag Parade had a front-page article on climate change and what we can do about it this week. I’m impressed that more popular media is jumping on the bandwagon. These days it seems that the average American gleans most of their facts from TV and these types of publications which are often affected by politics and other agendas. Peer-reviewed, scientific publications are a far cry from much of what is educating Americans – in “An Inconvenient Truth”, Gore discusses a random sampling of true peer-reviewed journals. Out of almost 1000 of these articles, 0% refuted global warming as a real entity. In comparison, out of popular media articles sampled, 54% included either some doubt as to it’s validity or refuted it. Amazing what can get published without proper research and facts.
Good for you, Parade.
