From the Climate Desk

The best from the Climate Desk

Last October, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists joined the Climate Desk, a consortium of the most respected media outlets dedicated to exploring the impact of a changing climate.

Check out these recent Climate Desk articles published at the Bulletin. They’re all part of an effort by climate scientists to fact-check a surge of climate misinformation, from President Trump’s claim that the US “has among the cleanest climates” to the “imminent mini ice age” myth.

Disinformation and fake news stand in the way of the public’s ability to demand urgent action. Our Climate Desk coverage, combined with the Bulletin‘s own original reporting, brings clarity to the confusion. Read on for what you need to know.
