Antarctica - Where have all the warnings gone - SCOTSMAN LETTER

Professor Sir David King's claim that global warming may lead to a catastrophic three-degree increase, was described by the BBC as his "strongest ever warning". However, he announced two years ago that global warming was so catastrophic that it was going to make Antarctica "the only habitable continent" by 2100. Presumably that warning, like so many "environmentalist" warnings, is retroactively non-existent.

I did email Radio Scotland when they reported this "strongest ever" claim but they never retracted it (as previously reported here). Is it not strange that while we get headlines daily saying "worse than thought" the media never issue headlines saying "Global Warming/Avian Flu/Passive Smoking/Salt etc may not be as bad as previously reported".

No, I guess it isn't.

I also did letters to the Herald disagreeing with a letter which said Miloseveic was comparable to Pinochet or Blair & to the Independent in response to a letter holding up the anniverasry of Chernobyl as proof of how dangerous nuclear is, but neither have yet been published.

It's a bit cruel to compare Pinochet to Blair: the former must surely have less to answer for before God?
