In what is a perhaps a new low for the Guardian, the Observer ran an article on Sunday using the tragic deaths in India’s ongoing heatwave to advance their climate change agenda:
“This is a scenario we should get used to seeing more of, scientists say. As the effects of climate change take hold and global temperatures creep up, extreme heat events will become more common.”
There’s just one problem with the sensationally titled article “The heat and the death toll are rising in India. Is this a glimpse of Earth’s future?“, as even the article caveats later on, blaming the deaths on climate change is a little far fetched for a region that has been hit by heat-waves throughout recorded history.
“It is hard to say for sure whether any single extreme weather event is a result of man made climate change, but this is a scenario we should get used to seeing more of, scientists say.”
Do they have no shame?
