“Science” in the era of Trump has taken a turn for the desperate as global warming has sparked a frightening increase in the spread of “fake news.” The mainstream media and some science publications, almost as if prompted by some sort of talking points email, latched on to a certain approach to a new government climate change report. The New York Times got the “leaked” ball rolling:

New York Magazine:

Huffington Post:

Daily Mail:

Scientific American:

Popular Science:

Worst “leak” EVER! Bottom line: The report wasn’t “leaked,” just finally reported on with added spin to make it appear Trump’s has an interest in hiding the looming eco-apocalypse so nobody cancels upcoming wedding reception bookings at Mar-A-Lago or something.

Also, Trump might not want to bury the report anyway, because the report — to some degree — buries Al Gore. More enviro-buzzkill from a CU Boulder professor with some interesting observations:

Safe prediction: The MSM will put practically zero focus on any of those details.
