Recently, I’ve come across on the Internet environmental scene speculations that the mainstream media refuses to connect ‘extreme’ weather events like the increase flooding in the West, Hurricane Katrina, droughts around the world, to Global Warming. Global Warming does predict that there will be more extreme weather events, including not so much more hurricanes (for example) as most intense hurricanes when they occur.
What do you think? Do you think mainstream media refuses for some reason to connect the dots between the alleged increase in ‘extreme’ weather events and Global Warming? If so, why would you think mainstream media would be reluctant to do that. Or, if not, why don’ you think the alleged increase in ‘extreme’ weather is an indication of Global Warming?
