ABSTRACT
The article presents an editorial which discusses the dangers of exaggerating the realities of climate change. When reporters write stories about global climate change they often use the worst case statistics because they make for a more interesting article. However, the author warns that exclusively linking climate change with these dire outcomes makes it easier for skeptics to deny the entire situation.
