Mad, mad, mad world

More of the mad mad mad world-

Reuters , AP and other agencies caught with their pants down and make lame excuses. That western news outlets channel terrorist propaganda willingly is something that has been evident for a long time.

update- Helen Szamuely goes through the case and comes to this conclusion:

So the story was given by somebody who was nowhere near the scene of action and refused to give his name or explain who he was. It could not be confirmed because the situation in the area is dangerous but it was published anyway. Terrific.

According to the Drudge report- New scientific research refutes many of Gore's climate claims.
Among other things in this article-

Gore claims the snowcap atop Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro is shrinking and that global warming is to blame. Yet according to the November 23, 2003, issue of Nature magazine, "Although it's tempting to blame the ice loss on global warming, researchers think that deforestation of the mountain's foothills is the more likely culprit. Without the forests' humidity, previously moisture-laden winds blew dry. No longer replenished with water, the ice is evaporating in the strong equatorial sunshine."
Gore claims global warming is causing more tornadoes. Yet the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stated in February that there has been no scientific link established between global warming and tornadoes.
For example, Gore claims that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking and global warming is to blame. Yet the September 2006 issue of the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate reported, "Glaciers are growing in the Himalayan Mountains, confounding global warming alarmists who recently claimed the glaciers were shrinking and that global warming was to blame."
What was that again ?-
Glaciers are growing in the Himalayan Mountains

But you hear and read everywhere that the Himalayan glaciers are melting. So who is lying? And why did our 'brave' media had nothing to say on this report? Does not fit their biases or sloppy work ethic?
