America is unique when it comes to giving a platform to climate deniers and skeptics.
According to a new analysis of data released last year, American
newspapers are far more likely to publish uncontested claims from
climate deniers, many of whom challenge whether the planet is warming at
all and are “almost exclusively found” in the U.S. media. The study was
published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
