The BBC and global warming...

The CBC is similar...
Whether it is hot or cold, wet or dry, windy or still, the BBC cannot wait these days to ascribe any fluctuation in our weather to global warming.

Again last week it was blaming "climate change" not only for last summer's floods and "the worst storm surge since 1953" (where was global warming then?) but even for our recent frosts - while cheerfully claiming that the last six years have been the hottest ever recorded in Britain.

This might seem odd to all those citizens of Buenos Aires, Sydney and Johannesburg who have recently been shivering through unprecedented snowfalls - as it will to anyone who has followed the satellite records of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

These show global temperatures over those same six years flattening out at 0.2 degrees below their level of 10 years ago. Isn't global warming meant to be global? And if CO2 levels continue to rise while temperatures fail to follow, might there not be something wrong with the theory?

And you sure must watch and listen to the CBC to make such a statement.But I am guessing you really dont.
Because the CBC does not talk about climate change any more than any other news outlet.

Oh, try using your own words next time

Anonymous mustn't watch CBC either. More stories are framed in the context of climate change on the mother network than the rest of the Canadian media combined.

Yea sure Steve.
You also then , being a CBC hater, must also watch an awful lot of CBC to make such a claim.
I am guessing you can provide many examples of your claim, being an avid CBC watcher it should be easy
