Record Temperatures in France- What the Media Won’t Tell You

July 4, 2019

By Paul Homewood


Roy Spencer’s take on the French heatwave:


News reporting of the recent heat wave in France and other European countries was accompanied with the usual blame on humans for causing the event. For example, here’s the CBS News headline: Record-breaking heat is scorching France. Experts say climate change is to blame.

While it is possible that the human component of recent warming might have made the heat wave slightly worse, there are three facts the media routinely ignore when reporting on such “record hot” events. If these facts were to be mentioned, few people with the ability to think for themselves would conclude that our greenhouse gas emissions had much of an impact.

    ” ‘Experts’ say climate change is to blame.

    OK, so a few ‘experts’ have suggested that AGW made it worse (and I doubt it very much). But, the constant issue here is the presentation by the media. How many ‘experts’ and exactly what did they say. If they found 8 Republicans who were on record saying that they liked Hillary better than Trump, do they lead with, “Republicans like Hillary better?”

    What they should say is something more along the lines of, ‘ [we found] a few experts who believe whatever.’ Of course, they should also seek out a few experts who doubt it.
