NYT headline won’t help defog climate ‘debate’

The evidence is overwhelming: Levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are rising.

That quote is from a compelling story with an unfortunate headline that will inspire legions of readers to shrug it off and go read something that sounds new instead: Scientists Sound Alarm on Climate – NYTimes.com

I said pretty much the same thing—Haven’t they been sounding the alarm for years?—but I read the story anyway.

This headline was better and caught my attention first, so I read it first:

Scientists to Americans: We’re Not Divided on Climate Change

Take your pick, but be sure to read one of them. It’s important stuff.
