Star runs stupid and horrible climate column
The Kansas City Star reprinted a George F. Will column about climate change roundly derided as a pile of stink-poo upon its publication.
Will’s column first appeared in The Washington Post on February 15. The bow-tied conservative took aim at the “eco-pessimism” surrounding the “hypothetical” calamity of climate change. Will concluded his column by stating that “there has been no recorded global warming for more than a decade,” according to the U.N. World Meteorological Organization.
Within hours, writers and scientists attacked the column for engaging in the worst kind of cherry picking.
