Ripped From The Headlines

Washington Post headline:

Arctic Ocean Getting Warm;
Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt

From November 2, 1922.

And, winning our "overwhelming evidence of climate change" contest, it turns out that somebody was reading the thermometer wrong.

"Even the Canadian who spotted the original flaw says the revisions are 'not necessarily material to climate policy.'...Stephen McIntyre, who set off the uproar, described his finding as a 'a micro-change. But it was kind of fun.'"

I'm confused: Those "1998 hottest year ever" headlines were used constantly to "prove" global warming. So somebody thought that was an important fact.

Or is this one of those "important facts" that's only important until it's proved false, and then the fact that it's false becomes more proof of the very thing it was supposed to have proved when it was true?

That was a movie with Mel Gibson. Conspiracy Theory I think.
