USA Today story updates readers on trend in monthly global temperatures

2019-01-14

“The piece accurately reports the surface temperature record warming of recent decades and joins the dots appropriately to the underlying cause of human emissions. It appropriately draws the distinction between regional/national records and the global mean behaviour. The included quotes are to authoritative sources.”


Popular “Friends of Science” video promoted by Youtube presents long list of climate myths

2018-12-21

“The video presents a litany of the usual climate denier talking points, none of which hold any water. It is full of outright false claims and does not even shy away from presenting a fake TIME magazine cover that supposedly warned of an ice age. “Friends of Science” is an advocacy group “largely funded by the fossil fuel industry””


Popular story on Fox2Now accurately describes 2017 global temperature, sea ice extent

2018-12-04

“The article is factually correct. The reality that Arctic sea ice is getting younger is not so well known from the public, so such an article is welcome.
The article’s title and the front video are about sea ice, but most of the rest of the text is about global temperatures.”


Washington Post accurately describes ocean warming study (which has since been corrected)

2018-11-03

“The Washington Post article accurately reports the results and links to other topics using reliable sources. Quotations from Pieter Tans and Paul Durack add important caveats showing that this is strong new evidence but not the final say. This caution is vital for readers to interpret the findings.”


The Australian publishes “deeply ill-informed” opinion on climate by Ian Plimer

2018-08-09

“This article is an amalgamation of logical fallacies, misleading talking points, and downright factually incorrect statements regarding the physics of the climate system. Every talking point in this article has been debunked many times over and it is astonishing that this was published.”


New York Times’ news coverage of 2016 global temperature data was an accurate summary

2018-01-16

“A clear and accurate article on the temperature record in 2016, looking back at the records in 2015 and 2014. The article places them in the proper context of long-term warming, while mentioning the special effect that helped make the year a record.”


Daily Caller uncritically reports poorly supported conclusion of satellite temperature study

2017-12-04

“The absence of accelerating warming trends is meant to go against prevailing climate science, but I find that to be a strawman argument. In that sense the article is misleading—however, to its credit, it does report on other published results that contradict this recent study, but it fails to provide further context or to make any effort to compare/reconcile the validity of these different studies.”


2017 is on track to be among the hottest year recorded, scientists are not as surprised as ThinkProgress article suggests

2017-07-21

The scientists who have reviewed the article confirm it accurately reports that 2017 is on track to being one of the warmest years on record. Reviewers note this wasn’t as unexpected as the article states, but the fact that 2017 global surface temperature are that high is a clear reminder that global warming has not stopped or slowed down.


Breitbart article falsely claims that measured global warming has been “fabricated”

2017-07-11

“In a cursory attempt at both reporting and climate science, the author glibly highlights a document heavy on accusation and light on reasoned engagement with fact. Implying nefarious motives behind temperature measurement bias correction without providing readers any indication of why this is necessary is misleading and a dereliction of the author’s journalistic responsibility.”


Breitbart misrepresents research from 58 scientific papers to falsely claim that they disprove human-caused global warming

2017-06-08

“This article grossly misinterprets open-access scientific papers by simply looking at graphs and entirely ignoring their meaning as explained by authors in the text.”
