Climate Feedback

Screenshot
Media attention to climate change has been increasing over the past several years, but not all articles on the subject are entirely accurate, and it can sometimes be difficult for non-expert readers to separate the wheat from the misleading chaff. To help with this quandary, Climate Feedback reviews high-profile climate change articles from a wide variety of publications, then annotates and verifies or rebuts their claims. This effort is carried out by dozens of scientific experts from around the world volunteering their assistance. Founded by climate scientist Dr. Emmanuel Vincent, Climate Feedback is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that describes itself as "a worldwide network of scientists sorting fact from fiction in climate change media coverage [whose] goal is to help readers know which news to trust." Each selected piece is reviewed at either the article- or claim-level by multiple experts in relevant fields. Visitors can browse concise summaries of experts' assessments of the reviewed articles, and they can also read each reviewer's overall feedback as well as the full, line-by-line annotations in the context of the original article. Climate Feedback has been cited by numerous media outlets, including Ars Technica, The New York Times, and The Guardian.
