Analysis / Bias
The Climate Reality Project advocates for action against climate change. Besides Climate Change advocacy, they also publish a blog that leans strongly left in wording and story selection, such as this ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM: WHAT IT IS AND HOW YOU CAN FIGHT IT. While TCRP is well-sourced and factual in scientific information, it also has a left bias in its criticism of Conservatives. We give this organization a moderate left bias rating based on story selection that opposes the conservative perspective that climate change is not human-caused or simply not important.
