The Murdoch paradox: bias in climate reporting
by Simon Copland, who works for science communication at the ANU | Sep 24, 2012
Research has found more than 80% of stories on climate change from selected US News Corp outlets are “misleading” —&# 8201;and the problem seems to extend to Australia, writes ANU’s Simon Copland.

New research out of the US has provided evidence of the “misleading” reporting of climate change by News Corporation. The report, Is News Corp. Failing Science, written by the Union of Concerned Scientists, looked into representations of climate change at Fox News and The Wall Street Journal over a period of six and 12 months respectively.
In their study, stories were investigated and rated “accurate” or “misleading”. Misleading pieces were defined as those that:
Had a broad dismissal of the scientific evidence that climate change is occurring and is largely due to human activities
Disparaged climate scientists generally or specifically Disparaged or mocked climate science as a body of knowledge Cherry-picked individual facts or findings to question overall climate science conclusions. Engaged in debates or conversations in which misleading claims drowned out accurate ones.

Out of 40 mentions of climate change on Fox News, 37 were determined to be misleading, or 93% of stories. The reporting in The Wall Street Journal (researchers looked at the opinion section) was slightly more accurate; 81% of stories were considered misleading. Disparaging the basic fundamentals of the science was the most common approach at both outlets.

Now if all the 'scientists', leaders, politicians, followers and devotees of global warming actually 'acted' like it was a crisis, instead of just insisting others do so, you just might be saying something.
Until then... it's just another doom and gloom prediction.
btw, where did the all funding come for this report? How much travel? How many pages of paper were deforested? What was the size of the carbon footprint created to draft this report?
Everyone will be acting like it's a crisis before long.

I believe the funding comes from the UN.

Travel? Paper? Carbon footprint? Research isn't cheap. And if you're going to make an omelet, ya gotta break some eggs.

(Reuters)- A United Nations panel of experts met on Monday to review a draft report that raises the probability that climate change is man-made to 95 percent and warns of ever more extreme weather unless governments take strong action.

Scientists and officials from more than 110 governments began a four-day meeting in Stockholm to edit and approve the 31-page draft that also tries to explain a "hiatus" in the pace of global warming this century despite rising greenhouse gas emissions.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will go through the document line by line and present it on Friday as a main guide for governments, which have agreed to work out a United Nations deal by the end of 2015 to fight global warming.

"I expect the world will understand the simplicity and the gravity of the message that we provide," Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, said after the opening session.

Climate change "will transform our lives, our economies and indeed the way our planet will function in the future," Achim Steiner, head of the U.N. Environment Programme, told delegates.

A shift towards a greener economy, based on renewable energies, would hold multiple benefits for society, he said.

And... so what?

Oh yeah... you're operating under the delusion that anyone not devoted the global warming "science" must watch Fox News.

You're wrong, of course, but I don't expect you'll change your mind.

It's not the "so what", its reporting based on lies. no different than Bush's WMD's we all know how that turned out.
If you are going to call yourself a journalist, then report the truth not what the boss wants you to say.

Really?

So when will the warmists go after the biggest global warming hypocrites?

It would seem that if you're really trying to promote the 'science' then those hypocrites should be getting the bucket-loads of criticism, protests and demands.

Instead, all we see are warmists arguing with skeptics.

Like I've said before, when everyone promoting the theory starts acting like it's really the crisis they claim, then the theory gains credibility.

But until you challenge the hypocrites, then it doesn't really seem to be the "crisis" warmists say it is.

A drought across Texas and Oklahoma has made food and water scarce for cattle, which has kept herds small. The Department of Agriculture says there are 91 million cattle nationally, the smallest herd since 1952. Add to that the rising cost of feed and rising beef exports, and the price of beef in the states is surging.
“Your customers get tired of hearing every week that it’s going up,” said Andrew Hurford, manager of Kissin Fresh Meats.“Sooner or later, they’re going to reach a tolerance ceiling and they’re going to say maybe it’s not worth it anymore.”
<><><>< ><><><> <><>><>
It's going to be a crisis for a lot of people when they can't afford beef anymore.

<><><>< ><><><> <><><>< >

It's going to be a crisis for a lot of people when barley and corn yields are reduced by climate change extremes and the price of whiskey skyrockets.
