7 Pieces of Fake News About the Latest U.S. Climate Report
Bjorn Lomborg is an environmentalist who believes in Climate Change. But he is not an alarmist. Because of that, he is one of the few worth taking seriously.
And while I’m sure he would prefer to spend more time convincing skeptics like myselfthat Climate Change is real, because of all the climate hysteria out there, most of his time is spent debunking myths, fake news, and bad science.
After the release the government’s latest climate assessment report last week, and as we have come to expect, almost all of the establishment media used it to fire hose us with fake news. In response, Lomborg published a must-read piece at the New York Post debunking the misleading coverage.
