A leading researcher in climate change trends at one of the U.S.’s leading universities for scientific research called out the media for making blatantly false claims about a new climate change report released on Friday.
Roger Pielke Jr., whom The Daily Caller News Foundation described as an “expert on extreme weather trends and natural disaster costs,” called out The New York Times and others whom he said are making false claims about the new report from the National Climate Assessment (NCA).
In a tweetstorm, Pielke highlighted sections of the report that completely contradict the media’s claims that man is solely responsible for any climate change that is happening right now.
Pielke tweeted out excerpts from the report that clearly refute the media’s claims that man-made climate change is occurring.
According to his bio page at the University of Colorado’s Center for Science & Technology Research, Pielke was a Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research for nearly a decade before joining the university. He also received the Eduard Brückner Prize in Munich, Germany in 2006 for outstanding achievement in interdisciplinary climate research.
