Date: July 2018

Agency: State, WY

Explanation: Bias and Misrepresentation

Scientist: Climate

As of July 2018, the website of Wyoming State Representative Scott Clem questioned the scientific consensus on climate change, stating:

“The fact of the matter is that man-made climate change is not settled science. Instead, it is hotly disputed by reputable and educated men and woman.”

In fact, there is broad scientific consensus that human activities are the main driver of climate change, with over 97 percent of scientists agreeing on this point.
