In the wake of a major report that found the United States was actually warming at an unprecedented rate, and that the planet is in the midst of a “hiatus” that’s likely to continue for the foreseeable future, some have been trying to figure out how to spot the fake news.
In the past year, climate scientists have published articles that claimed the planet was cooling.
In March, a fake report on NASA claimed that a warming trend was coming, with scientists claiming that sea levels had been rising.
And in August, a story claiming that the US was suffering from an “inflection point” was retracted after the editor said it was too extreme.
“I was in the lab when the report came out, and I said, ‘Wow, this is really scary,'” said John Houghton, a scientist at the University of Texas at Austin and the chief scientist for the Earth System Science Center.
“The fact that it was so extreme and so bad that we couldn’t ignore it at all is what’s scary to me.”
Houghtons research on climate change has been cited by some scientists as an example of what they call “fake news,” the fake stories that are often published to make the story seem more serious than it is.
“It’s the same sort of thing you’d see on Twitter or on social media where someone makes a claim that is totally false,” said Houghts co-author Andrew Rosenberg, a professor of atmospheric science at Columbia University.
“They don’t bother to fact check it.
They just make a claim and they’re able to spread it.”
But a recent study published in the journal Science found that in a number of instances, the articles were not entirely wrong.
The researchers examined 1,500 articles from more than 150 news organizations from the U.S., Europe and China that contained claims that were either false or misleading.
They found that more than 90 percent of the claims were either true or somewhat true.
The study authors said the findings showed that “fake” claims were becoming more prevalent, but that there was a difference between the kinds of claims they were debunking.
In one article, for example, the author said that the melting of ice sheets had “killed” a polar bear.
In another, the authors reported that a sea level rise was likely because of carbon dioxide emissions.
In many cases, the researchers said, the claims appeared to be exaggerated.
“We found that fake claims were far more likely to be correct than real-world stories that were more truthful,” said the study, which was funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society.
The fake news that is most common In their study, the scientists looked at the number of fake claims that appeared in the news media and analyzed them by type.
They determined that claims that focused on climate scientists and the idea that humans were causing climate change were the most common.
They also looked at how many of the articles in the top 100 stories were about climate science.
In each of those articles, they said, scientists and experts were cited as experts in their field.
The scientists found that the claims often were made by people who had a conflict of interest.
In some cases, those conflicts of interest were clear.
A recent example was an article by an engineer at Google that claimed that the earth was going to hit the bottom of the sea because of climate change.
A number of news outlets published the claim.
But it wasn’t the first time a report was retracted, the study said.
The authors said that in 2015, a group of climate scientists retracted an article about the climate system that was published by the journal Nature.
In response to the retractions, a new study published by Rosenberg and Houghtons co-authors said that fake news on climate science is becoming more common.
“That is the first paper to report that fake reports of climate science in the press are becoming more prominent,” the authors wrote.
Scientists, researchers and experts are using social media to spread fake news to try to help their peers in their research. “
This finding may reflect the growing use of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Google for propagandistic and sensationalist purposes, or it may reflect a growing awareness among journalists that their work can be used to mislead the public about climate change.”

“Fake news is a tool that we use every day in the science community,” said David Caldeira, an ecologist at the Carnegie Institution for Science and a former vice president of the Union of Concerned Scientists.
“And it’s really hard to catch because we don’t have a great deal of information about what’s going on in the media.”
But he added that “if you have a problem, it’s a good idea to start looking at the stories, to see if they’re true.”
