    It can't be 'muddled definitions' - it's freaking obviously screwed up reporting.

    Only a pretty dumb detective would try to defend 'science' when the issue is blatantly in 'journalism', (the dumb detective would be you). Unless you suspect scientists of releasing this nonsense?

    Or search engines that rewrite headlines!!!...

    Ah! I see your point; dodgy headlines and so on. You are making such good sense, I’m starting to feel giddy.

    You and everyone else know that headlines are written to grab the readers attention and very often have only a very tenuous link to the substance of the story.

    I blame journalists who want to fetch headline grabbing news. The global average changes very slowly in comparison to day to day, or week to week changes.

    The warming that happens between 8:00am and 2:00pm is hundreds of times faster than the global average.

    So basically those headlines are garbage unless some statement is made about how the data is gathered, and what time span is covers.

  3. Amen Cow Poke amen'd this post.
