CTV News Bullshit: Summers in Northern Hemisphere may last half the year by 2100: study

Our friends at the Canadian Television Network really should have checked with The London Independent before running this press release.

TORONTO — A new study has found that summers in the Northern Hemisphere may last nearly six months by 2100, if efforts to combat climate change are not taken.

Researchers behind the study out of China warn that a longer summer season will likely have “far-reaching impacts” on agriculture, human health, and the environment.

The study, published Monday in peer-reviewed scientific journal Geophysical Research Letters, reports that global warming is driving “dramatic and irregular” changes to the length and start dates of seasons, which may become more extreme in the future without efforts to mitigate climate change.

The propagators of the press release, the obscure Geophysical Research Letters (peer reviewed!) may have at least learned from The Independent and pushed back their forecast to the 22nd century, when most of us plan to be dead.

It was not made immediately clear why not freezing to death, a longer growing season, and going out in shorts and tee-shirts was a bad thing.

Yeah, that’s right CTV. More food will be grown, better quality food will be grown, and billions fewer will starve.

With regard to CTV’s original premise regarding the existence of global warming…
