Is ExxonMobil writing copy for Reuters?

Of course not. But you might have gotten that impression by reading this Reuters story which claims that 1) cutting down on fossil fuels will speed up global warming and 2) there is serious disagreement among scientists about whether global warming is in part man-made or whether it exists at all. WorldChanging does a good job of explaining how the reporter completely missed the point of an upcoming BBC documentary on global dimming. The upshot is that it is now more urgent than ever to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
