Ya gotta laugh! The NYT could teach Dr Goebbels a thing or two
The NYT has up at the moment a big article by a dear little lady named Coral Davenport (and friends) under the heading: "Greenland Is Melting Away". It's a long article decorated with huge and beautiful pictures so one might expect a lot of it.
Coral is a twit
But Coral presents zero proof that Greenland Is Melting Away. Instead she salivates over a group of "scientists" travelling to Greenland to take "measurements". The only actual statement she makes about Greenland overall is "The full melting of Greenland’s ice sheet could increase sea levels by about 20 feet".
Maybe it could, though she gives no calculations or proof, but the interesting thing about the claim is that she doesn't say when or how long that will take. In fact she goes on to say that nobody knows that and that the scientists she adulates are there to take measurements that might answer the question. The answer could be "1,000 years" for all we know -- and for all that the NYT tells us
So the whole thing is just a glossy bit of unusually brainless propaganda. But it's the sort of propaganda that Leftists need to prop up their sagging hypothesis about global warming.
