Stewgreen and AK. I agree with both comments but the beholder chooses what they want to read and that includes what subjects and how they are portrayed. The WikiTribune can't be all things to all men.

The Russiagate Scandal Descends Into Total Absurdity

The Senate Intel Committee told us yesterday that, after nearly nine months of investigation — that’s included more than 100 interviews, over more than 250 hours, 4,000 pages of transcripts, 100,000 pages of documents, interviewing officials in the intelligence community who wrote the report on Russian election meddling, interviewing relevant Obama administration officials, and talking to every Trump campaign official they’ve requested — it’s literally found zero evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Never mind Russia dismantling America’s democratic system with only $100,000 in Facebook ads, which did not even discuss the US election, Russia has now weaponized Pokemon.

CNN broke an ‘exclusive’ story on Thursday in their desperate attempt to publish anything with the word ‘Russians’ in the title. CNN is now claiming the Russians meddled in the 2016 presidential election through Pokemon Go.

From WUWT
"OCO-2’s sensors also measured carbon dioxide emissions over the Los Angeles basin, detecting a sort of carbon dioxide “dome”. Urban areas account for more than 70 percent of anthropogenic emissions."

#countryfile and here's Tom with the weekly Climate Change b/s.
In the snow, no less 😂😂😂😂

So hows the Climate going too effect weather
Ans : "Well we don't know"
"but each extra 1C or warming puts 6% more water in the atmosphere" ...does it ?
" so we do thing that will add more umph to the jetstream producing stronger storms, and more frequently"
..hmmm assertion is not proof

\\ The irony of @BBCCountryfile doing a piece on a medieval village destroyed by storm & no mention of #GlobalWarming //

Example of choosing agenda to report 4pm R4
\\Omar El Akkad's* debut novel American War
: a future America where the country has been ravaged by climate change and a second Civil War breaks out over fossil fuels. //
* BTW He was upset at people describing him as ethnic Egyptian

then at 4:30pm
"Writer and poet Bridget Minamore explores how women - particularly women of colour - have pushed back against the poetry establishment to create their own literary narratives."
She started Octavia a poetry group that only admits Women of Colour.
Apparently that is not racist

Equality should not be #MoreEqualThanOthers where specialvictim groups get masses of coverage

Bias is in the eye of the beholder.

@TinyCO2
Bias is* just HOW you report
but about WHAT you CHOOSE to report
by choosing an SJW-dream story as their first post .. Wikitribune shows it has an agenda

I doubt WikiTribune will be sucessful. It lacks much of what blogs, Wikipedia and the current news online have got going for them. The sort of left wing elite they want to attract wouldn't be caught dead supporting a crowd funded offshoot of Wikipedia, they prefer the Guardian, HuffPo and New York Times. Those who would be happy to use it are already catered for and wouldn't be pleased with the elite style preaching. Potentially it will become the screeching platform for animal/human/planet rights organisations but they will be bleating to the converted.

Not been a warm weekend here
Yesterday was windy with bit of sun in the morning
Today low cloud humid and really windy
No sign of 24C

I don't see why people go on about measured temperature
Cos the next year the same day could be the same temperature and higher humidity so it feels a lot colder and I guess for plants there is a big difference in functioning as well.

When it comes to the unreliability of Climate Science and Wikipedia, there is this from Real Climate (hardly a reliable source)

"William M. Connolley. Filed under: Contributor Bio's — group @ 6 December 2004"

"When I joined RC, I was a climate modeller with the British Antarctic Survey. Now I’m a software engineer for CSR. I’m still interested in communicating the science of climate change, but can no longer do so at a professional level.

I’m also elsewhere: the wikipedia project is developing into a useful resource ........."

Jimmy Wales has made an outstanding contribution to faking up climate science. None of it can be trusted.
