Some Predictions Don’t Come True

John Ray at the Dissecting Leftism blog makes an interesting observation today. He compares reporting on AIDS in the 80s and early 90s (specifically, that the disease would ravage the American heterosexual community) to the global warming scare today.

Yes, folks, it is possible for the mainstream news media to report something as an accepted scientific fact, almost a certainly — and be wrong about it.

Which does not prove, of course, that the theory known as global warming is wrong — only that the fact that it gets a lot of good press doesn’t mean it is right.
