Climate Feedback

Resource: Climate Feedback

Climate Feedback is a new fact-checking tool that lets climate scientists review journalists’ articles on climate change and global warming and gives each story a credibility score. Furthermore, a browser extension is used to enable the scientists to comment on information within media stories so that anyone who installs the plug-in can see the commentary. By highlighting misinformation, a visual cue is being sent to the reader to be cognitively on guard, and thus misinformation is less likely to spread.
