The Weather Channel Would Really Like Breitbart To Stop Using Its Videos To Spread Climate Change Skepticism

December 6, 2016

The Weather Channel has had it up to here ☝️ with Breitbart taking its videos out of context to deny climate change is a real thing. 

Breitbart used a Weather Channel video about La Niña's effects on New England's weather to argue, among other false claims, "The last three years may eventually come to be seen as the final death rattle of the global warming scare." 

The Weather Channel clapped back with an article Tuesday titled, "Note to Breitbart: Earth Is Not Cooling, Climate Change Is Real and Please Stop Using Our Video to Mislead Americans." The Weather Channel also accused Breitbart of "cherry picking," or picking out small details and using them to make misleading claims. The response fact-checks claims from Breitbart and Daily Mail articles, and it asserts the scientific community is in agreement that greenhouse gases produced by human activity have led to global warming.
