I read both articles and posted them both to encourage debate. The fact is that the overwhelming majority of people get their news from a newpaper, news website or the idiotbox. I first saw this article on the Guardian website but I then checked the sourse of the story. In that spirit I placed both links so people could read for themselves.
But I do get your point, the way I constructed the post was probably not particually skillfull. Anyway, live and learn.
From NASA's website:
"Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time," says Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data."But if we continue to observe melting events like this in upcoming years, it will be worrisome."
Just for the record I am am concerned about AGW!
