Associated Press Ditch “Climate Denier” Slur

ap climate

The Associated Press updated their stylebook yesterday, telling staff to avoid calling those those who don’t accept climate science “skeptics” or “deniers“.

“Our guidance is to use climate change doubters or those who reject mainstream climate science and to avoid the use of skeptics or deniers.”

AP say they have made the change after “scientists who consider themselves real skeptics” complained that calling non-scientists skeptics devalued the term and people who see themselves climate skeptics complained that calling them “deniers” has “the pejorative ring of Holocaust denier“. The compromise is to use “doubters“. The Gaia style guide still recommends that climate alarmists be referred to as “loons”…
