CNS Tries to Link House Global Warming Bill, Weather At Time of Vote

Edwin Mora uses a July 7 article to bizarrely attempt to draw a relationship between the House's passage of a bill regulating greenhouse gas emissions and the weather in Washington at the time of the vote, which "averaged more than 4 degrees cooler than normal."

It didn't work, of course -- Mora was forced to concede that "Temperatures of individual states or districts do not pinpoint what is going on globally" and quoted a scientist at the liberal Center for American Progress saying that "April was the fifth warmest April globally and it said that May was the fourth warmest May on record" -- both of which blow out of the water his suggestion that below-normal weather for a week in Washington means there's no global warming.

Still, Mora did his best to cling to his baseless theory, citing none other than Alan Carlin, an EPA researcher who wrote a report "that had raised questions about the validity of the agency's conclusions on global warming." At no point, however, does Mora mention the fact that Carlin is not a climate scientist or that actual climate scientists have disputed his research (as we've noted).
