Conservative news blog “Tichys Einblick” (TE) has just lost a court case against Correct!v, the German equivalent of Snopes. The facebook partner attached themselves on TE’s facebook post to claim that not 500 scientists wrote an open letter against climate change hysteria. They argue that retired scientists aren’t scientists and have no expertise whatsoever to speak about the science here. Research in pharmacy companies and other institutions does also not qualify scientists as scientists, says Correct!v. But who is Correct!ve, anyway?
