Washington Post Refutes Itself

I made a post a few days ago about how George Will was misleading the public with his columns regarding climate change and solutions for addressing it. It appears some of the reporters for the Washington Post think so as well. In an article about how new measurements for Arctic Sea Ice show it’s thinner than ever, the Post adds in near the end of its article…

“The new evidence — including satellite data showing that the average multiyear wintertime sea ice cover in the Arctic in 2005 and 2006 was nine feet thick, a significant decline from the 1980s — contradicts data cited in widely circulated reports by Washington Post columnist George F. Will that sea ice in the Arctic has not significantly declined since 1979.”

It’s good to see that some journalists for the newspaper are willing to jab at a fellow staffer who isn’t being appropriately fact checked by the editorial staff. It also makes Will look even more ridiculous.
