      Leave politics out of this.  It is a proven fact the global warming exists.  All these people who get irate and scream denial should wake up.  I have grandchildren.  I fear for them.  I fear for our planet.

      "False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long;" - Charles Darwin.

      "If you see, hear, or read inaccurate reporting on science or global warming, drop a line to one of these media watchdogs" seems to be a call for information these watchdogs could actually *use* in an attempt to stop the rumormongering and get the real science out there.

      Here's a tidy list of either misused science facts, or a complete lack of scientific data altogether (http://www.google.com/search?q=false+global+warming&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a).

      @ William Jewett: Like most people with your absurd and deluded politics, you don't understand how science works, you can't argue your way out of a wet paper bag, and you are barely literate. You pick a couple of pseudo-facts off some astroturf, industry-funded climate-change-denial blog that confirms your prejudices and spew them out in places like this. Yes, please, go away and wallow in your ignorance while we try to solve the truly terrible problems human society now faces as a result of runaway global warming. But just be quiet about it, OK?
