IBD Notes Three Global Warming Stories The U.S. Press Has Ignored

December 27th, 2015 10:17 AM
Yesterday, I noted that Associated Press reporter Karl Ritter actually wrote, and AP actually published, a story about how complying with the Paris climate agreement would require greenhouse gas emissions "To Drop Below Zero." Perhaps Ritter, whose beat includes "cover(ing) climate change, from UN negotiations to Arctic melt," looked around and realized that if he didn…

Part of a Real AP Headline: 'Emissions Need To Drop Below Zero'

December 26th, 2015 10:56 AM
The detachment from reality of those who actually believe that the recent international climate agreement in Paris is anything but a dangerous and potentially expensive charade has become especially irritating. The goals identified in Paris are obviously unachievable, and have no direct tie-in to reducing "global warming." Convincing evidence of the link between carbon dioxide…

As IPCC Report Looms, AP Frames 'Scientific Consensus': 'Humans Are Co

September 24th, 2013 5:01 PM
It's amusing to see how the left reacts when things don't work out as predicted. Earlier today (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I noted how USA Today's Kelly Kennedy described a major malfunction in Obamacare which will cause hundreds of thousands of children to go without health insurance next year as a "glitch." On the "climate change" front, those darned…

For AP, Small Climate Protest Is News, Opposition Letter From 129 Scie

December 1st, 2012 4:00 PM
In case you missed it, there's yet another United Nations climate conference in progress, this time in Doha Qatar. At the Associated Press, there is a story on a protest which organizers want to characterize as a "march for peace" by "a few hundred" climate activists demanding "climate justice." The AP's Karl Ritter warns readers that "Dangerous (…

AP Report on 'Radical Right' in Europe 'Fighting Islam' Somehow 'Forge

December 7th, 2011 10:50 PM
In a report appearing earlier today, Karl Ritter at the Associated Press wanted U.S. readers to know that the "radical right" in Europe is turning into a really big problem. Why, these people have the nerve to object to the fact that "Muslim immigrants are colonizing Europe with the tacit approval of left-wing political elites." "Colonization" seems to be an…

AP: 'Tolerant' Sweden Can't Tolerate 'Far-Right' Party

June 5th, 2010 10:54 AM
The Associated Press's Karl Ritter clearly doesn't recognize how close to parody his report ("Rightist group jolts Sweden's tolerant self-image") on the mini-rise of the right-leaning Sweden Democrats Party is (I'll use "SD" as an abbreviation in this post). Ritter is not afraid to label the SD, but won't label others. He begins by telling us that the SD is "far-right…
