Global Warming Coverage

Global warming is a topic that CNN is providing a lot more coverage than Fox. In the last 30 days, CNN has had 11 articles to Fox's four. Here is a list of the articles:

CNN:
Uncertain world (02.11.2005) When bears wake early from hibernation, Australia suffers its worst drought in 100 years and multiple hurricanes hammer Florida should we believe the end is near?

Amazon forest breathing uneasily (02.07.2005) As the light plane banked left, the smell of smoke reached the cockpit. The landscape below was an ashen green, the sun above an orange glow behind sooty billows of gray.
Glaciers shrinking in a warming world (02.07.2005) Up and down the icy spine of South America, the glaciers are melting, the white mantle of the Andes Mountains washing away at an ever faster rate.

Scientists predict rising global temperature range (01.31.2005) Greenhouse gas emissions could cause global temperatures to rise by up to 11 degrees Celsius (20 degrees Fahrenheit), according to first results from the world's largest climate modeling experiment.
No end seen for Eritrea drought (01.27.2005) Four men in T-shirts and fatigue trousers work on Ghebremeskel Manahabt's farm under the hot afternoon sun, ripping dried corn stalks from rocky soil that has produced less and less cereal over the past four years under a prolonged drought.
