Some Saturday night humor. File under Things a Journalist Should Be Too Embarrassed to Cite. In her weekly Washington Post column published on Monday about the impact of the ash emitted by the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland which shut down European airplane flights, “Nature hoists Europe back in time [1],” Warsaw-based Anne Applebaum included this sentence about reaction to the volcanic eruption:

A British friend sees this as “judgment for the bad things we have done to the Earth.”

Applebaum [2] is a veteran journalist, serving as Warsaw correspondent for The Economist, foreign editor and deputy editor of the Spectator magazine in London and the Evening Standard's political editor, before becoming an editorial writer for the Post and, since 2006, a columnist.

Do you know see how they can conflate junk science and real science without blinking. Tells you a lot about the global warming belief.

By the way, whenever you hear someone say something like a friend x in y believes, you know its the reporter's inner voice.
