As Media Matters explains: “Conservative media have been casting doubt on climate change because of a colder-than-average winter in the lower 48. But the global temperature in January was the fourth warmest on record, 1.17°F warmer than the 20th century average.” Apparently, this is too difficult a concept for “conservatives” like Charles Krauthammer and George Will (aka, fossil fuel tools, “useful idiots”) to understand. Of course, it’s kind of hard to understand something when you are in bed with an industry that has a HUGE economic stake in making sure that people do NOT understand that very something. Amazing how that works, huh?
