For John, BLUF: Color commentary rather than facts. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From L'Ombre de l'Olivier, by Mr Francis Turner, 19 April 2018.
The Wapo (Tagline – Where Journalism Dies in Darkness) has an article about how Climate Change Glowball Worming is harming Virginia, The article is risible on many levels and is pretty much a regurgitation of a PR from the Natural Resources Defense Council without querying any of the rather iffy things that the NRDC claims. Therefore it needs a good fisking to set the story straight.It isn't a great fisking, but it is a good fisking.
I am with the author, who characterizes himself thusly:
Full disclosure I’m what is generally known as a “Lukewarmer” climate skeptic – i.e. I think the earth has warmed in the 20th century and humanity (and CO2 emissions) may be responsible for some of that warming, however I don’t think future warming is likely to amount to much and is highly unlikely to be catastrophicHat tip to the InstaPundit.
