The “first casualty” was truth

As much of the country lies blanketed in several inches of global warming, the result of the coldest day ever recorded in these parts (with snow even on the hills of Dargaville!), it’s worth noting that among the “first casualties” of global warming have been truth and scientific integrity.

Not to mention reports of the imminent extinction of the polar bears, of Himalayan glaciers and of coral reefs—and Tuvalu’s ten-thousand climate refugees.  You can’t mention them, because they’re not there. The extinctions, that is. These are just a few of the many “first casualties” of global warming that weren’t.
