(PatrioticPost.com)- According to a report, five non-profit groups published a report Wednesday debunking mainstream media claims about the so-called climate change crisis.
The “Climate Fact Check 2022” report by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), the Heartland Institute, Energy & Environment Legal Institute, Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), and the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC) highlighted ten fact-checks of climate disaster claims made by media outlets like The Associated Press, which received $8 million from left-wing philanthropy groups to cover climate change.
The report says climate alarmists and their media allies claimed manmade emissions caused natural disasters in 2022. These claims contradict reality and science.
The Associated Press reportedly received donations from climate alarmist foundations for decades. William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Quadrivium, Rockefeller Foundation, Walton Family Foundation.
The report included an article by an AP reporter called “New abnormal: Climate disaster damage ‘down’ to $268 billion,” which said some natural disasters like the Pakistan floods, Hurricane Ian, and droughts from Europe to China were turbocharged by human-caused climate change.
The Climate Fact Check report says that the floods in Pakistan and the monsoon season of 2022 were both within the range of natural variation and were the wettest since 1961. Why was it so rainy if emissions were to blame?
Mainstream media blamed climate change for Hurricane Ian’s rapid intensification, the deadliest hurricane to hit Florida since 1935. The report cites NOAA, which says Atlantic basin hurricane activity is within natural variability after a historically quiet start to hurricane season.
According to BBC News, Europe went through its worst drought in 500 years.
But the Climate Fact Check 2022 asks if the lack of rain was caused by emissions from coal-fired power plants, SUVs, and cheeseburgers, then what happened in Europe during the mega-drought in 1540?
The Associated Press admitted in a report earlier this year that it received $8 million over three years from various groups, allowing it to hire more than 24 journalists to cover climate issues.
Is this money funding journalism or political activism?
