2024 SkS Weekly Climate Change & Global Warming News Roundup #03

A listing of 34 news and opinion articles we found interesting and shared on social media during the past week: Sun, Jan 14, 2024 thru Sat, Jan 20, 2024.

Story of the week

From our perspective, the story of the week was certainly the report "The New Climate Denial" published by The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH). It and the underlying study centers on data analysis performed by the AI tool CARDS, developed by academics Travis G. Coan, Constantine Boussalis, John Cook and Mirjam O. Nanko. The initial training for CARDS was conducted by members from our Skeptical Science team several years ago, so it's cool to see that work put to good use and bearing fruit now!

Many articles were published about the report during the week - here is a little sample of them with the ones containing quotes from John Cook bolded:
