Analysis / Bias
In review, all articles are sourced and well written. There is minimal use of loaded language, though story selection tends to favor the left as this source is a very pro-environment source such as this What can I do about climate change? Fourteen ways to take positive action. Under the opinion section, there are also left-leaning opinions such as this ‘Why we shouldn’t call today’s children the ‘Covid generation’ – but ‘the remarkables.”
Most stories favor a socially equitable world and climate justice; therefore, we rate them Left-Center Biased and factual in reporting based on proper sourcing.
