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.”


The Telegraph publishes false information about Arctic climate

2017-05-09

“This article suffers from a common error in reasoning. The author focuses on individual “snapshots” of the state of the climate while ignoring the long-term trends. Those trends occur over many decades and must be observed/considered over those time scales.”


Analysis of “Record-breaking climate change pushes world into ‘uncharted territory’”

2017-03-22

“The article clearly and concisely documents some of 2016’s climate extremes and puts them in the context of the warming trend.”


Analysis of “U.S. scientists officially declare 2016 the hottest year on record. That makes three in a row.”

2017-01-19

“The article accurately conveys the US agencies’ declaration of 2016 as the hottest year on record. It provides some good background material on why the agencies’ numbers differ slightly (treatment of the Arctic) and the contributing roles of El Niño and man-made global warming.”


Analysis of “Stunning new data indicates El Nino drove record highs in global temperatures…”

2016-12-02

This is an incredibly misleading article. It cherry picks a dataset taking measurements 2 miles up in the atmosphere only over land areas that disagrees with the other two datasets that examine the same values… The author is taking a normal modest cooling at the end of a large El Niño event and spinning it completely out of proportion.
