Action Alert: George Will's Climate Change Baloney

In the wake of a George Will column (Washington Post, 2/15/08) attempting to refute the reality of climate change with a string of inaccurate claims, FAIR has an action alert calling on media activists to write to the Washington Post asking them to retract the falsehoods and explain their fact-checking procedures for columnists.

You can post copies of your letters to the Washington Post in the comments section below. Please remember that letters that maintain a civil tone are most effective.
