The fake news media falsely claims that scientists exaggerated climate change

A recently-published study claims that keeping global warming to within 1.5 °C increase is still possible if Paris accord emission pledges are met. This is good news, as the general literature seems to assume that we are scheduled for a 2°C , and the fear is that we are on track for an increase in 4°C, which would result in far more unstable climate, extreme weather disasters, and rising sea levels.

As if right on queue, the fake news/alt-fact universe has jumped onto this and claimed that scientists have admitted they’d exaggerated the effects of climate change.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
