Is This Ironic?

As demonstrated by the "5 Myths" article I posted about below, there is a tendency to confuse clean air laws with a response to global warming. In fact, it is as clear as anything having to do with global warming can be that cleaner air, ceteras parebus, results in a warmer climate than otherwise. More particulates in the air would mean more cooling. Cleaning the air is not part of our response to global warming, it's part of the problem.

I see my long-overdue crackdown on irony abuse has left you all confused and doubtful about the subject. Good.

Yes, that is very ironic in the context of most environmental debates.
