    • Editorial, Investors' Business Daily

    With crude at $30 and natural gas at $1.70 (down from $14 in 2007), news pages are full of stories about tough times in the Oil Patch.

    It’s a familiar theme. Global warming is killing off penguins, just as it decimates polar bears, spreads deserts, acidifies oceans, triggers hurricanes and gets fingered for most every other plague to visit the Earth. No one found 150,000 penguin carcasses so there’s no reason to think they died. “150,000 penguins have disappeared in Antarctica.

    Today’s news tells of another mistake of exaggerated climate science prediction. Given how fallible climate models are, why shouldn’t we be skeptical of the scary headlines?

    • Date: 12/02/16
    • Lawrence Solomon, Financial Post

    Environmentalists’ faint hope that they can get international action on climate change gets fainter by the day.
