NYT Issues Correction in Climate Change Story

The New York Times on Wednesday retracted its claim from a front-page Tuesday story that it exclusively obtained a draft government climate report.

“An article on Tuesday about a sweeping federal climate change report referred incorrectly to the availability of the report,” the newspaper wrote in its correction. “While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times.”

The report said climate change is behind a rapid and drastic change in temperatures in the U.S. since the 1980s and that the effects of global warming can already be felt in most parts of the country with temperatures the highest they have been in the past 1,500 years.
