WRONG! READ THE ARTICLE. It's just a month old ... it's NEWS!

[sarcasm]You see, from time to time in this modern world, new information becomes known - information that sometimes concerns important topics, or at the very least, topics that people are interested in. When this kind of new information becomes known to media outlets, they publish it in papers, on TVs, radios and on the Internet. It's called NEWS.[/sarcasm]

NEWS was made about global warming on February 2, 2007, and it was reported in the Washington Post. Apparently there was a conference of scientists from 166 countries and they agreed unanimously. Maybe you're not up on the news, but here's how that conference changed their previous findings:
