Well, which one is it? Do we have 'climate change', or do we have 'global warming'? Didn't climategate happen? I seem to remember emails from the top people, the same organizations and people quoted in the article, as saying "we must hide the decline." You can read the code that was used to rig the data. If you don't understand the computer code, the high numbers of comments by the coder will tip you off. This was data used to 'support' Global Warming.
The NY Times article naturally assumes that you sit in the first pew of the Progressive Church of Global Warming. Not only do you get 'climate change' in the title, and then a switch to 'global warming' midway through, you get an increase in agricultural productivity in some northern lands, but overall there will be lessened agricultural production. Why? The plains of Canada and Russia will now be able to produce food - how do we get to a reduction in 'agricultural production'?
The most hilarious part of the article is the link to Al Gore's winning the Nobel Peace Prize - this is used as an appeal to authority tactic by the author. Not only is Al Gore the owner of two huge homes, the latest one being a $9 million monstrosity on the fragile California coast, but he jets around the world preaching Global Warming, blasting CO2 into the air and pollution while waving a Nobel Peace Prize around. The same "peace" prize that Henry Kissinger, Yasir Arafat and Barack Obama have won - all warcrimes killers. This is the person the hapless author chose to use as an 'authority'.
Zerohedge and the commenting community did its requisite job on the Executive Order put out by the president to fight the weather. You have to wonder who still blindly believes this stuff. Didn't we hate W Bush for all of these executive orders? Doesn't the massive amount of climate fraud by the IPCC and the Rent Seekers get through to the Climate Crowd?
Someday the NY Times will be the headliner at newspaperdeathwatch.com. That day can't come soon enough.
Watch how the co-founder of Greenpeace, MIT scientists and other scientists associated with top schools and organizations destroy the "science is settled on global warming" crowd. According to the Mainstream Corporate Media, these people don't exist. See them for the first time:
"Look there, Sancho Panza, my friend, and see those thirty or so wild giants, with whom I intend to do battle and kill each and all of them, so with their stolen booty we can begin to enrich ourselves. This is nobel, righteous warfare, for it is wonderfully useful to God to have such an evil race wiped from the face of the earth."
"What giants?" Asked Sancho Panza.
"The ones you can see over there," answered his master, "with the huge arms, some of which are very nearly two leagues long."
