The Double Standard in 'Global Warming' Reporting

A long, hard winter does not disprove 'global warming' but a drought proves it; at least in the reporting of Time magazine.

  • "Ultimately, however, it's a mistake to use any one storm--or even a season's worth of storms--to disprove climate change (or to prove it; some environmentalists have wrongly tied the lack of snow in Vancouver, the site of the Winter Olympic Games, which begin this week, to global warming). Weather is what will happen next weekend; climate is what will happen over the next decades and centuries."--Time.com, Feb. 10

  • "As the worst heat wave on record spawns wildfires that are destroying entire villages, Russian officials have made what for them is a startling admission: global warming is very real." -Time.com, Aug. 3

Actually, neither case proves or disproves global warming.
