Indy disappears legendary climate quote

Anthony Watts has the extraordinary information that the Independent has disappeared the now legendary "children won't know what snow is" article.

You've heard of something called a newspaper of record? I guess the Independent is whatever the opposite of that is.

The Independent is a newspaper and we shouldn't forget that. Certainly not a fount of wisdom. No point attacking them because they were never anything other than cheerleaders anyway.

Ceetee, as a newspaper, The Independent should not be allowed to forget, what it wants us to forget. Isn't that one of the 'rules' of investigative journalism? Far better to make a statement about previous mistakes, and then try to move on, rather than disappear evidence.

If they want us to forget their unsustainable and irrational stance on an issue, then the story is why? The facts have not changed, so maybe the way they have chosen to interpret facts has, with the realisation that their best advice on climate science, has been uneducated guesswork.

15 years? They made Karl et al (Possible artifacts of data biases in the recent global surface warming hiatus) the front page story on the Friday it came out, but disappeared the article by Saturday ('job done', no doubt).

son of mulder, yes, also known as a damage limitation exercise, as they have foreseen the coming damage. Shame they can't limit the damage to UK power generation with the click of a mouse.

There are thousands of kids in central Australia who do not know what snow looks like.

talking about stones in shoes ....

Unlike some - I have *direct experience* of The Independent's editorial policy and can say that they never knowingly allow anything contrary to green dogma or even mildly embarrassing to eco-players onto their pages / web site - they actively seek to expunge facts and counter argument down to the level of article comments.
