If it only takes a few well placed forum postings, idle threats, and insults of intelligence to change this:
Global temperatures this year will be lower than in 2007... This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory. But experts have also forecast a record high temperature within five years, probably associated with another episode of El Nino.into this:
Global temperatures for 2008 will be slightly cooler than last year as a result of the cold La Nina current in the Pacific... But this year's temperatures would still be way above the average - and we would soon exceed the record year of 1998 because of global warming induced by greenhouse gases.then I've been going about things all wrong! Who needs logic, critical thinking, and evidence?!
And really, is "way above average" even good writing for a "journalist"?
