NYTimes’ Andrew Revkin: Climate scientists are coming out of the woodwork to eviscerate the WSJ for publishing climate denialist propaganda

An op-ed article signed by 16 scientists rejecting the need for “drastic action to decarbonize the world’s economy,” published Friday by the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal, has been widely and thoroughly fact-checked and challenged elsewhere.
