|If you're looking for recent global warming articles|
on the web, you need to know who to trust. It's true that the internet
is a great resource for information, but it's also a tool for writers
and journalists with a political agenda to publish anything they want,
to spread lies and deceive the public on the real facts about global warming.
Don't be fooled by the false information you may read online. To get a proper understanding of global warming, you need to be able to differentiate between reliable newspaper articles and sources that may bend the truth to further a campaign of misinformation.
HumanEvents.Com Two prominent authors for this site, Sen. James Inhofe and Christopher Horner, are directly tied in with the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a public interest organization at the center of the global warming misinformation campaign that's received over $2 million from Exxon Mobil over the past decade. One article claims that the green agenda is an "anti-human" agenda - ironic since many of the site's contributors don't believe that humans contribute to global warming.
- GlobalWarming.Org While the source sounds legitimate, the website is actually "focused on dispelling the myths of global warming." Their news page includes many posts by William Yeatman. Some of these include links to various articles and editorials (none from scientific sources) on topics like why cap and trade isn't a good idea, how environmentalists "hurt" blue-collar workers, and how the climate scare is media-driven. The catch? Yeatman also works for CEI and is therefore indirectly getting paid off by Exxon Mobil to spread lies about global warming.
- Green.FoxNews.com While the site has news articles, they mostly involve the writer's experiments with green cleaners, green grocery shopping, and composting - though there is some reporting on new climate change minors at certain colleges, and the use of Zipcars on campuses. However, none of the articles involve any science or call attention in any way to the facts of global warming.
- Their poll: "Is global warming real?" Fox News is apparently still questioning the cause of global warming, even though scientist agree that humans are largely to blame. By the way, 63% of the audience's poll respondents said "no" and only 37% said "yes."
You must learn the difference between good and bad information to find out the truth about global warming. Many websites are maintained by organizations and individuals who are funded by Big Oil, specifically Exxon Mobil, to downplay the effects of global warming and perpetuate the idea that global warming is a hoax.
Do your research and you'll find that recent articles written by actual scientists prove that global warming is real, happening now, and that we must take action to prevent it.
