Scientists blast AP's science "fiction" writer for outright propaganda
When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Same crap. Different Day.
The opinions of a geologist and a nuclear physicist, unfounded by actual knowledge of the Climatology field or any significant activity in Climate Research do not in any way challenge the conclusions of the leading climate researchers.
It would be like asking your dentist what's wrong with your car.. insane and basically demagoguery, trying to create a smokes-screen to obscure the CREDIBLE science with inane 'opinions'of self inflated gasbags.

"a smokes-screen to obscure the CREDIBLE science with inane 'opinions'of self inflated gasbags."
You are a phony. A deliberate fraud. You do not believe leading climate researchers unless they sing the political AGW crisis song.
MIT Climate Scientist Calls Fears of Global Warming 'Silly'- Equates Concern to "Little Kids" Attempting to "Scare Each Other"
BILL GRAY, professor emeritus. He is often called the World's Most Famous Hurricane Expert:
He has testified about this to the United States Senate. He has written magazine articles, given speeches, done everything he could to get the message out. His scientific position relies heavily on what is known as the Argument From Authority. He's the authority.
"I've been in meteorology over 50 years. I've worked damn hard, and I've been around. My feeling is some of us older guys who've been around have not been asked about this. It's sort of a baby boomer, yuppie thing."
At age 86, hes still hard at it every day, delving into the science some say he invented.
Reid A. Bryson holds the 30th PhD in Meteorology granted in the history of American education.
Emeritus Professor and founding chairman of the University of Wisconsin Department of Meteorologynow the Department of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences
in the 1970s he became the first director of whats now the UWs Gaylord Nelson Institute of Environmental Studies.
Hes a member of the United Nations Global 500 Roll of Honorcreated, the U.N. says, to recognize outstanding achievements in the protection and improvement of the environment.
He has authored five books and more than 230 other publications and was
identified by the British Institute of Geographers as the most frequently cited climatologist in the world.
All this argument is the temperature going up or not, its absurd, Bryson continues.Of course its going up. It has gone up since the early 1800s, before the Industrial Revolution, because were coming out of the Little Ice Age, not because were putting more carbon dioxide into the air.

What because Seth Borenstein is a science writer for Associated Press does not make him any more a scientist than you or me. Maybe you ought to listen to a few people who actually have a degree in a science field rather than a journalism degree. Or to use your phrase is like asking your dentist what is wrong with your car. Then again your dentist might just have restoring cars as a hobby.
Seth Borenstein is a national science writer for The Associated Press, the world's largest news organization, covering issues ranging from climate change to astronomy. He is the winner of numerous journalism awards, including the National Journalism Award for environment reporting in 2007 from the Scripps Foundation and the Outstanding Beat Reporting award from the Society of Environmental Journalists in 2008 and 2004. He was part of a team of finalists for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Columbia space shuttle disaster. A science and environmental journalist for nearly 20 years, covering everything from hurricanes to space shuttle launches, Borenstein has also worked for Knight Ridder Newspapers' Washington Bureau, The Orlando Sentinel, and the Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale. He is the co-author of three long out-of-print books, two on hurricanes and one on popular science, and once tried out for Florida Marlins (unsuccessfully).

It sells papers
It creates controversy
It also displays the complete lack of logic by these supposed experts ---when you hear that we are getting colder, because the climate is warming---doesn't the alarm bell go off in your head?
I now know where my fellow students in class who failed Physics--they became "Science Reporters"
Stupidity will never self appraise itself for fear of failure !

To quote Abraham Lincoln: "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."
But the opinion of a journalist now that we'll accept.
