Misuse of Science - the Left joins in

Under the tabloid-styled headline "Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us" The Observer conveniently omits the Pentagon report's disclaimer:

"We have interviewed leading climate change scientists, conducted additional research, and reviewed several iterations of the scenario with these experts. The scientists support this project, but caution that the scenario depicted is extreme in two fundamental ways. First, they suggest the occurrences we outline would most likely happen in a few regions, rather than on globally. Second, they say the magnitude of the event may be considerably smaller."

So, the Observer has gone from a very worst case scenario to claiming the Pentagon is saying climate change "will destroy us". So on the one hand the Left are castigation Bush for misuse of science but at the same time misusing science themselves.

Catallaxy Files has some quite good global warming skeptic links.
