• MSNBC: "Billion-gallon sludge flood could change utility"

The Daily Telegraph: "Global warming: Reasons why it might not actually exist"

— Pointing out that it's cold has been a hot topic among climate-change deniers the last few weeks, and London's Daily Telegraph apparently isn't above capitalizing on this niche market. A day after letting Christopher Booker opine that manmade global warming was "disproved" in 2008, the paper has now compiled a selective list of arguments against human culpability in climate change. Digg readers have reported this story as "possibly inaccurate." 

U.S. News & World Report: "The Top 5 Environmental Newsmakers of 2008"
