Hint Hint: This is one reason why they call it the “Jokelahoman.”

Sorry to get all OkieFunk.com on everyone, but if you want an angry good laugh then you have to read this Inhofesque Oklahoman editorial at NewsOK.com. Here are some blurbs from it:

While many Americans may not know it, there's considerable disagreement in scientific circles with the view that humans are the major cause of global warming...

The naysayers have credible arguments. A number of climate experts think Gore exaggerates the warming threat and humankind's contribution. They take issue with the methodology of the United Nations' panel that periodically releases reports predicting dramatic climate change...

"The whole process is a swindle," writes Vincent Gray of New Zealand, a climate scientist and member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's expert reviewers' panel. "The IPCC from the beginning was given the license to use whatever methods would be necessary to provide "˜evidence' that carbon dioxide increases are harming the climate, even if this involves manipulation of dubious data and using peoples' opinions instead of science to "˜prove' their case."

So is Gore right, or does he wield the biggest megaphone? Are humans causing global warming, or does that notion have exaggerated acceptance because so many environmentalists, activists and government bureaucracies are pushing it "” with philosophically aligned, awards-giving groups like the Nobel committee and Hollywood following them?

Our state newspaper, ladies and gentlemen! I hope it makes you proud.

Anyway, you would think with all the "considerable disagreement" and "naysayers with credible arguments" out there in the world, that the Oklahoman could maybe do better than quote some random scientist from New Zealand. You would think that, but then you would realize that you are reading The Oklahoman, where logic and common sense really don't matter. Hell, maybe next week they'll write an editorial touting "Intelligent Design" over evolution or possibly something regarding the scientific "debate" on if the world is round. After reading the garbage found both above and throughout their editorial section, there is nothing that would really surprise me.
