Oh, no! Tell me it isn’t so! The editor and (I guess) publisher of Farm and Dairy have gone over to the nut side of the global warming debate, as witnessed by their publishing a full page feature article (“Scientists study ice and sediment cores to reveal Earth’s climate history,” ) reporting on a study by Oregon State University’s Shaun Marcott, a johnny-come-lately hysterical, hyper-fanatic, man-induced global warming fraud.
It is not the first pro-global warming article published by Farm and Dairy, but it’s certainly the most cockeyed of the lot, Marcott claiming to have found in an Antarctic ice core a record of earth temperatures going back to the time of Adam and Eve (11,000 years).
I wonder if either the editor or publisher checked into the many articles debunking the conclusions of the ‘study’ published within days of the huffin‘n puffin out-of-breath press release publicizing this latest man-induced global warming sell-all-your-goods-and-head-for-the-mountain-top flimflam.
And I’m wondering: Has Farm and Dairy ever published articles on global warming from men like Richard S. Lindzen, Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology? Not that I know of.
It seems, then, that the editor and publisher of Farm and Dairy have made a rational decision to join the ranks of those journalists who pander to the man-made global warming alarmists, a journalistic group that fits Comrade Lenin’s description of the Western industrialists who pandered to the Soviets, to wit: useful idiots.
