Now and then a wacky thing of the week falls out of the newspaper. This one has been forwarded around a bit already, but there are so many awful (wonderful) things about it, I scarcely know where to begin. So let me begin at the beginning. I must pause to thank Morgan, Bethany, Steve and Marty for the forward. I originally received this article as a full page, but chopped it up for presentation.
It should read (based on the context of the body of the article) “Daylight exacerbates warming”, and not “warning”.
Please read the article below in its entirety.
I know what you’re thinking. Incredibly, there is someone so confused about the role of government and caught up in conspiracy theories that it firstly seemed plausible that the government’s adjustment of daylight savings time could impact global climate or at least the local weather. Secondly, it made them upset enough to write a letter to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Finally, the newspaper, having presumably read the letter, not only printed it but messed up the headline.
To the editorial staff of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, and to Connie M. Meskimen of Hot Springs, Arkansas, I salute you.
