The Weather Channel is going to the mattresses over Breitbart.com’s use of one of its reports to suggest that climate change isn’t real.
Meteorologist Kait Parker in particular is peeved that the conservative news-and-opinion platform, which now has close links to the Donald Trump administration, used her face to spread the misinformation. Watch here:
Global warming is not expected to end anytime soon, despite what Breitbart.com wrote in an article published last week.
Though we would prefer to focus on our usual coverage of weather and climate science, in this case we felt it important to add our two cents — especially because a video clip from weather.com (La Niña in Pacific Affects Weather in New England) was prominently featured at the top of the Breitbart article. Breitbart had the legal right to use this clip as part of a content-sharing agreement with another company, but there should be no assumption that The Weather Company endorses the article associated with it.
