About that AP piece claiming climate scientists didn't fake dataTopics: Climate Change, Climategate, Global Warming, Political News and commentaries
In a nutshell, it's BS. The author is Seth Borenstein (and friends), better known as the Baghdad Bob of global warming. As others have noted, the article itself represents everything that is wrong with our supposedly objective media.
Climate warming-friendly and AGW-supporting reporter Seth Borenstein and friends wrote the piece on Dec. 12 titled, "Climate scientists didn't fake," and they make the outlandishly absurd statement that after "an exhaustive review by the Associated Press" they have found that "the e-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data - but the messages do not support claims that the science of global warming was faked."
However, it turns out that Mr. Bornstein is far too cozy with those very same climate scientists he's covering to have any credibility whatsoever, and is even included in the email threads.
As a commenter wrote about Borenstein in the Tacoma News-Tribune:
Associated Press reporter Seth Borenstein has a terrible reputation as a runaway alarmist. Even global warming enthusiasts and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are embarrassed by his over-the-top prognostications of doom and selective use of data to support his fading dream that mankind can actually control climate.Given Borenstein's long, sad, history of woeful global warming reporting, his
numerous conflicts of interest and clear bias, there's little, if any, reports by Borenstein that can be taken with anything more than a grain of salt. This is especially true in light of the far more credible special investigation by the Daily Mail that addresses the emails and devastates the warmists.
