NPR Calls for Immediate Action to Increase Global Warming

That's Dean Baker's headline over at Beat the Press. I thought it was stand-alone funny but it's hilarious if you know something about Mr. Baker:
He is a frequent guest on National Public Radio, Marketplace, CNN, CNBC and other news programs.
From his blog's mini-bio.
