That's not an argument - that's contradiction!

" and that the type of sceptics who question whether global temperatures are warming are almost exclusively found in the US and UK newspapers."
This is the whole problem succinctly put in one half-sentence. It is written to suggest that anyone who argues with the concept that the globe is warming is, horror of horrors, a right wing journalist or in denial.
Sadly, the language used is inaccurate and the whole title of this so called science of "Global Warming" is a misnomer. The Globe is not warming, per se. The effect of changes to the climate can be both warming, cooling or none at all (the most famous example of a lack of change being Vienna). When the title of your area of study is not justifiable, is it any wonder that people are sceptical of your whole body of work, whether it is valid or not?

To the under 20's the voice call part of the phone is both irrelevant and inconvenient, as it actually allows their parents to communicate with them. "Communication" is via text, twitter and facebook these days.
Big Brother because most of them communicate in Newspeak.
