Science at work

I don’t get it.  If so many climate scientists have done so much research that “the debate is over”, then why do we still get treated to such emotional bullshit as this?

“This is probably just a perception, but I just have the feeling that the glaciers are melting, the snow capping the mountains is less than it was 12 years ago when I saw it last time,” Thrisk said. “That saddens me a little bit.”

Complete nonsense.  Either the glaciers are melting, or they’re not.  Reporting that an astronaut “feels” like they’re smaller from when he saw them TWELVE YEARS AGO… is not reporting.  Journalism standards fall lower and lower every day.
