Real Climate Science from David Legates Seems to Scare the Media. Will it Scare NOAA?

It’s not often that I read a MSM report and think that every single paragraph is full of sh!t. But this NPR story about Heartland friend and esteemed climate scientist David Legates has falsehoods in every single paragraph that doesn’t simply identify him. Well done, NPR — which reached out to Heartland for comment on a Saturday two hours before they published this story “on a tight deadline” for a story they were obviously working on for days. Your tax dollars subsidize this fake news, by the way. Legates has, indeed, been “questioning basic tenets of climate science,” if you substitute the word “science” for “dogma.”,, “He’s not just in left field, he’s not even near the ballpark,” says (lol) Jane Lubchenco, The chances that Jane Lubchenco has read anything David Legates has written or listened to anything he’s said about the climate is zero. If she did, she wouldn’t say anything she said. It’s embarrassing, really. By Jim Lakely >click to read< 10:08
