    When I challenged him about the ‘hottest year on record,’ a New York Times reporter explained that his readers are too dumb to understand numbers. I recently wrote about the wretched reporting on the claim that 2016 was the “hottest year on record,” using as my main example a New York Times article by Justin Gillis that gave his […]
