Wall Street Journal lies on climate change
I know, big surprise, right? Jeffrey Sachs destroys their recent article purportedly debunking the WSJ's claim that global warming is a hoax due to the natural Atlantic ocean cycle, citing a recent study in Science Magazine. Sachs ably points out that the study in question affirms exactly the opposite. It differentiates surface and deep ocean warming and it's true that overall warming cycles between the two. While there may be a recent trend for surface cooling it is offset by greater deep ocean warming. When it cycles around to the former it will be significant. The WSJ takes a sentence fragment on the recent surface cooling and thinks that refutes the entire warming process, obviously taking it out of context. Again, big surprise.
