Story of the Week...

Earth has hottest May on record, with 2020 on track to be one of the top 10 warmest years

Sunset

  • The Earth had its hottest May ever last month, continuing a climate change trend as 2020 is set to be among the hottest 10 years ever, scientists with the Copernicus Climate Change Service announced on Friday. 
  • 2019 was the second-hottest year ever, capping off the world’s hottest decade in recorded history. And six of the warmest years on record were during the past decade.
  • The continuous upward trend in global temperatures results from greenhouse gas emissions that change the climate.

Climate Feedback Claim Reviews...

The global polar bear population is threatened by loss of sea ice, contrary to PragerU’s video claim

CLAIM: The polar bear population has been growing. Polar bears are thriving even where sea ice is diminishing.

VERDICT: Incorrect

SOURCE: Remember this starving Polar Bear, Video posted on the PragerU Facebook Page, May 5, 2020

KEY TAKE AWAY: There is no scientific evidence that the global polar bear population is growing in size. Climate change induced losses in sea ice habitat is the most important threat to polar bear survival. Two polar bear subpopulations have already been negatively impacted by sea ice loss.
