A trend that is not a trend.  Warren Meyer (aka CoyoteBlog) has a nice take-down of a Rolling Stone article on the intersection wilderness wildfire management, global warming, and politics.  This is one of an excellent series he's started, describing “trends” noted in the media that are actually not trends at all.  Often they're just isolated facts that an author twists into a trend; sometimes they're a trend – but in the opposite direction stated.  My takeaway: be careful about believing anything you read in the mainstream media.  But that's old advice, isn't it?
