from Consortiumnews: "For those of us who have taught journalism or worked as editors, a sign that an article is the product of sloppy or dishonest journalism is that a key point will be declared as flat fact when it is unproven or a point in serious dispute – and it then becomes the foundation for other claims, building a story like a high-rise constructed on sand."

by Michael Bastasch.    A group of scientists recently put out a new study confirming the 15-year “hiatus” in global warming.

Paris Agreement: Another False ‘Turning Point’ On Climate
