Rapid response: BBC revamps article on global warming to make activist happy

Ace did the lifting on this so the link goes to him, but follow his link to the National Post and read the e-mail exchange for yourself. It took 76 minutes to transform a story about cooling temperatures casting doubt on global warming to global warming marching steadily onwards notwithstanding the recent blip in cooling temperatures. Fine by me; if the media wants to make its story angles a function of reader reaction, conservatives will happily play that game. When does that principle go into effect for its coverage of, say, Iraq?

Exit question: How’d this story get through? Al Gore had better e-mail the Chronicle, stat.
