Distorting headline in Irish Times about climate chnage

Latest statistics show no evidence that global warming is taking place.

Is the headline for an article on publication of a set of new 30 year benchmanrks for irish waether forcasting from met.ie.

But the point of the article is that 30 Years is too short a period over which to assess climate change – i.e. the figures are not “evidence” one way or the other (not that the figures dont show any change they do with 0.75 degree incease in average temp).

But lots of people will only read the headline and come to the wrong conclusion
