This is from CNN, which says it is trying to become a “news” channel again:
We shouldn’t single out CNN for this preposterous headline. Other major news outlets including the Washington Post reported this “fact,” as they called it.
Does any sane person think that we have reliable daily temperature data from 100 years ago – let alone 100,000 years ago? They are really sticking with their claim that this 4th of July was hotter than July 4, 90,000 BC.
We won’t waste your time rebutting these claims, but for those who want the facts, we recommend the piece in the WSJ this weekend from Steve Milloy, who does a brilliant rebuttal. He notes that reliable satellite temperature data for the planet didn’t even exist 50 years ago.
