The Australian’s climate correction

On Tuesday The Australian published a front page story that claimed a study found sea level rise was not linked to warming. Today the newspaper issued a correction.

Branded in red as an ‘exclusive’, a front page headline on The Australian on Tuesday turned more than a few heads with the assertion that sea level rise was ‘not linked to warming’. It now appears the story was rather optimistic in its reading of an abstract of a scientific paper.

Pointing to a study in the Journal of Climate from November last year, the article said:

“The latest science on sea level rise has found no link to global warming and no increase in the rate of glacier melt over the past 100 years.”
