The Daily Mail has published a pretty miserable piece claiming that we’re about to undergo some extended cooling, which has been making the rounds on message forums and email chains. Mojib Latif and Anastasios Tsonis are cited as refuting the mainstream view of climatic change, specifically with regard to the influence of anthropogenic greenhouse emissions. Given the way that Latif’s words have been twisted in the past to claim he was predicting global cooling, alarm bells immediately went off. Sure enough, Latif seems to have been quoted out of context [h/t BD] for the purpose of making it sound like he believes virtually the opposite of what he actually does.
