Brennan Cherry-Picks Global Warming Info
Topic: Newsmax

In a Sept. 8 Newsmax article, Phil Brennan selectively reports climate information to assert that "The global warming theory is going into the freezer."

Brennan bases his article on an Aug. 20 Reuters report stating that "The first half of this year was the coolest in at least five years, according to the World Meteorological Organization." But Brennan failed to note Reuters' statement that temperature dips "do not undermine the case that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are causing long-term global warming, climate scientists say." While Brennan notes that one meteorologist blaiming La Nina for the cooloing and stating that "Up to July 2008, this year has been cooler than the previous five years at least," he leaves out another meterologist's statement that "La Nina is showing signs of moving towards a more neutral state," meaning that, according to Reuters, "The weakening of the La Nina effect over the last few months could see the global mean temperature creep up again in the latter part of the year."

Brennan is a serial misinformer on global warming
