Climate Change: A Reality Check

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 19:00:21 +0000

Mark Twain said, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” When it comes to climate change, the truth is still putting on its shoes. For climate truth, one need know the complete record of climate history, something that the media haven’t been good at reporting. The primary culprit in misleading the public about climate change is Michael Mann. Selwyn Duke states, “Put simply, Mann is said to have used statistical sleight-of-hand to create a temperature graph that omitted the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age, thus making our time(image)

What Silverman means by fake news in his article is deliberately-fake news, such as the fake news that Donald Trump pardoned Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. Since then, the phrase fake news has taken on new meaning. Now, the phrase also refers to news that is fake, but the one promoting the news believes that it is true. All too often, the latter kind of fake news is the product of sloppy journalism on the part of(image)
