Do The Headline and the Story Match?

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what's meant by the phrase "media bias":
New Law in North Carolina Bans Latest Scientific Predictions of Sea-Level Rise
ABC News By ALON HARISH | ABC News – 7 hrs ago

A new law in North Carolina will ban the state from basing coastal policies on the latest scientific predictions of how much the sea level will rise, prompting environmentalists to accuse the state of disrespecting climate science.

The law has put the state in the spotlight for what critics have called nearsightedness and climate change denial, but its proponents said the state needed to put a moratorium on predictions of sea level rise until scientific techniques improve.
Just in case you're not sure, the answer is no, the headline and the story don't match.
