The source of denial (joke copywrited to Graham Thompson)

This may not be entirely new or surprising information to you, but the English speaking press around the world has been recycling Rose's Mail on Sunday climate denial nonsense for nearly a decade. Now a decision of the Australian Press Council, published today, means that 'it was in the Mail' is no longer an excuse for publishing climate misinformation.

Mail's top climate journalist confesses...

Posted by Graham Thompson — 18 September 2013 at 2:05pm - Comments

The Mail on Sunday has withdrawn claims made by journalist David Rose in last weekend’s edition of the newspaper. Rose wrote that IPCC climate scientists had predicted warming of 0.2oC per decade, but that actual warming was 0.12oC per decade since 1951. Thus, his original headline read: “World’s top climate scientists confess: global warming is HALF what we said”. Except, the IPCC never claimed 0.2oC of warming for that period, they claimed a 0.13oC trend, meaning they were only out by a statistically insignificant 0.01o. Rose got his numbers wrong, he was exposed across the internet and now he’s been forced to retract the claim. Rose regards himself as the great climate truth-teller, sniffing out all and any errors and omissions in the data before splashing them across the pages of the Mail in his own hyper-ventilating style.

                                                                                                                                                       So we wondered how David Rose would report on the revelation that he got his own climate story wrong....

Dear Mail on Sunday, Time is not on your side

Once in a while, roughly every month or two, Daily Mail journalist David Rose likes to focus his laser-like mind on the twisting swindlers of the so-called scientific community, and write a big exposé of the Great Climate Hoax. He's an expert on hoaxes, and so would never be caught out by one himself. You would think.
