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.
