97.1% scientists say climate change is real, the media use 50:50 for and against discussions to discuss this reality
Sometimes you need comedians to tell the truth. On his new show, Last Week Tonight, comedian John Oliver took on the poor state of media reporting on climate science. For a long time scientists have pointed out that an obsession with "balance" in U.S. news reporting has injured people's understanding of climate science. In many cases, news networks have a debate over climate change with a denier on one side and someone who accepts the science on the other side, but such "debates" make it appear as though climate science is unsettled, which it's not, according to, well, scientists.
