The cartoon turtle lied!


In the Jan. 17 Cortez Journal, there is a cartoon of an upside-down turtle. The caption states that 2012 was the hottest year on record.

When I end a letter to the editor, about half the time there is a editor's note that partially debunks what I have said.

Well, Mr. Editor, all any moron has to do is Google your cartoon claim. 2012 is not the hottest, but the 9th or 10th hottest year. The earth has shown no measurable increase in temperature in the past 10 years. You gave that cartoon a "pass," what is the Journal agenda? If you want to talk facts, talk facts: if not call yourselves the Montezuma County Enquirer.
