Time Shills for Global Warming Alarmist Site

     Time magazine is at it again. This time, it’s going beyond unquestioning coverage of global warming alarmism to act as a public relations agent for a global warming alarmist’s campaign.

     A Time.com article by Bryan Walsh encouraged readers to go to an environmentalist Web site because it might be their last chance to see the “polar world.” In the past, Walsh has promoted swift action to stem climate change.

     “Man your computers – GlobalWarming101.com might give you a last glimpse of a dying polar world,” Walsh wrote on February 22.

    GlobalWarming101.com is a Web site run by Will Steger, who identified himself as an author, photographer and “ceaseless advocate for the Earth’s well being.” The Web site listed the upcoming expedition touted by Walsh as well as books about Steger’s previous explorations. According toTime.com, Steger is trying to “raise awareness” of global warming.

     “To help raise awareness of the damage climate change is wreaking on the polar regions, next month Steger will be leading a team of six young adventurers on a 1,400-mile, 60-day-long dogsled expedition across Ellesmere Island, in the far Canadian Arctic,” wrote Walsh.

     Steger’s site said that the team would “visit the endangered and collapsed ice shelves – due to global warming.”

     “What they'll see may be startling,” continued Walsh. “Climate change has already refashioned the geography of the Arctic, melting glaciers that past adventurers – not to mention the Inuit who make their home in the far north – once journeyed on securely.”

     According to the article, Steger also employed the services of Sam Branson, the son of billionaire global warming activist Richard Branson.

    Walsh is no stranger to promoting global warming hype. In December 2007, he lobbied international leaders to be proactive fighting climate change and accused President George W. Bush of “foot-dragging.” Walsh also warned in a November 2007 Time article that global-warming inaction “could put up to 30% of species on the planet at risk for extinction.”
