Hmm: Washington Post warmist Andrew Freedman credits CO2 for the pleasantly warm March weather last year; doesn't blame CO2 for last summer's drought

What’s the future of climate coverage? | Carbon Brief
Freedman says:
"Lack of specialism tends to lead reporters to fit every extreme event into a particular frame. So while the March heat wave in the US was likely due in part to manmade global warming, the drought that is lingering in the Midwest (of the US) was more a product of La Niña plus the heat. Yet I see story after story that implies the drought was caused by global warming."

OBAMA [suggests that global warming causes drought]: Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms.
