Agreement in all things

[Via Whiskey Fire]

Rule: never, ever trust the Scientifical Informationality in a news article that contains a sentence like, say, this:

One thing is for sure. It seems the debate about what is causing global
warming is far from over. Indeed some would say it is hotting up.

The article’s sciencetifical dreadfulability is comparationable only to its badly-writtenatudedness.

NOTE. Yes, I know about (though refuse to condone) the degenerate European slang “hotting up.” What kills me is the hideous quasi-pun in the service of the unforgivable “One thing is for sure” and “some say” cliches. Everyone involved with the composition, editing, and publication of these three sentences should be shot.


It is bad enough when journalists get the science wrong in a science article. But that happens all the time. I figure it is because they do not really care about the science.

To get the writing so wrong. Well, that just demonstrates that they do not care about the writing. So why in the heck are they journalists?
