Scientist Patrick Michaels writes in the American Spectator Thursday that if a major journal reported the planet has warmed twice as much as previously thought it would be front-page news in every paper.

He writes: “But what would happen if a paper was published demonstrating that the planet may have warmed up only half as much as previously thought?” Well, Michaels says nothing would happen. He and fellow scientist Ross McKitrick published a manuscript in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres earlier this month saying just that — that the world has warmed only half as much as previously thought.

Michaels — who is a member of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — states that his findings show temperature records should not always be trusted, because many are recorded in urban areas. Michaels says scientists have known for years that urban areas are warmer than rural ones and that temperatures collected in cities are biased.

That’s Hume’s Holiday replacement at Fox last night. (Bret, I think?)

If there’s a better way of exposing the bias of the press than this, I can’t think of one. Anything that fits the liberal mantra gets printed. Anything that doesn’t, gets ignored… just as described here.
