In conclusion, let us quote Greenpeace recommendations for searching information on climate:
What should you follow in researching resources?
Climatologists explore climate, physicists explore physics, historians explore history, and economists often dabble in politics. If you can, find out what sources the material is based on and, importantly, if those sources were indeed created by climatologists.
Insist on citing exact sources. Not all educational projects include reference to the information sources they use. Therefore, be careful if a precise source is not cited.
Trust experts. Follow them on social media and read their articles.
Watch trends. Detailed understanding of studies that describe climate crisis is relatively time-consuming. Accordingly, make sure to follow the trends that the studies describe.
