ABC – a tale of two stories

The ABC is on fire today, with two diametrically opposed stories appearing within the space of a few minutes. I wonder if these ABC journos ever actually speak to each other?

Story One:

Canberra scientists say they have proven that the world’s climate is changing faster than ever before.

And Story Two:

Climate change may not be as severe as predicted, suggests an international study that shows current modeling of carbon dioxide emissions from soils are overestimated by as much as 20%.

But hang on, the science is settled, right? The debate’s over, isn’t it?

Read them here, and here.


  1. This is ‘churnalism’ in action (from the book Flat Earth News).Possibly even written by the same journalist just copying and pasting the press releases in.
