Inconvenient Science: NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over thepast two years. Not that you'd know it, since that wasn't deemed news. Does that make NASAa global warming denier?Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperaturedata and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global averagetemperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop inthe past century.
"The 2016-2018 Big Chill," he writes, "was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five monthdrop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similarevent from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980saverage."
Isn't this just the sort of man-bites-dog story that the mainstream media always says isnewsworthy?
In this case, it didn't warrant any news coverage.
In fact, in the three weeks since Real Clear Markets ran Brown's story, no other news outletpicked up on it. They did, however, find time to report on such things as tourism's impact onclimate change, how global warming will generate more hurricanes this year, and threaten fishhabitats, and make islands uninhabitable. They wrote about a UN official saying that "ourwindow of time for addressing climate change is closing very quickly."
Reporters even found time to cover a group that says they want to carve President Trump'sface into a glacier to prove climate change "is happening."
In other words, the mainstream news covered stories that repeated what climate changeadvocates have been saying ad nauseam for decades.
