Profs: Articles debunking climate change are ‘fake news’

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — A relatively new website overseen by professors across the globe denounces articles critical of climate change by labeling them not scientifically credible.

The “Climate Feedback” program enlists more than 100 professors and scientists who review articles on climate change to check for “accuracy.” The program refers to itself as “nonpartisan” and a “trusted reference on climate information credibility.”

But nearly all of the articles the service has reviewed from conservative or right-of-center publications, or written by right-leaning authors, received a negative rating. The professors’ claim the articles used “flawed reasoning,” or they label them “inaccurate” or “misleading.” The reviewers parse each article and offer rebuttals as to why they believe the reports are not scientifically credible.
