News Hacks Fire up the Tardis for Gaia

Let's say you went to J-School because you “wanted to make a difference”. Let's say that you're so invested in the narrative that you think your poop don't stink. Let's say you're so invested in the “ah!!! the world is ending! Narrative that you start to believe in time travel.

Data from the UK and US indicate that the earth's temperature peaked either in 1998 or 2005. They can't tell.

"La Nina is part of what we call 'variability'. There has always been and there will always be cooler and warmer years, but what is important for climate change is that the trend is up; the climate on average is warming even if there is a temporary cooling because of La Nina."
The 2007-08 La Nina, that is. But don't judge a cooling trend following 1998 or 2005 by anything else.
