‘Far right’ label is correct in one regard

Because much of our coverage flies in the face of narratives promoted by the western world’s political and social left, many critics have called us a “far right” news organization.

And to a degree, they are correct … because, so FAR, we have been RIGHT.

We were right about COVID lockdowns doing more harm than good – Analysis of excess deaths in 2020 reveals surprising deviations

We were right about most excess deaths during the pandemic being among younger, healthier segments of the population … and NOT from COVID – Detailed analysis of excess deaths in 2020 reveals surprising deviations

We were right in reporting a disturbing number of serious adverse reactions to COVID vaccines – Analysis of severe events following COVID vaccine shows increased evidence of myocarditis and lymphadenopathy

We were right in documenting that major peer-reviewed studies could be presented in a way that flies in the face of the very data on which the studies are focused – Higher rates of adverse events after mRNA vaccines interpreted poorly by study authors

We were right in reporting that the Canadian government’s use of the Emergencies Act in February 2022 was not justified from legal and logical perspectives –   The Canadian prime minister’s emergency act

We were right about global energy crises being driven by government policy focused on emissions-reduction goals without adequate regard for energy security – Recognizing roots of global energy crisis might help us move toward solutions

We were right about climate science being a complicated and deeply nuanced sector beset with alarmist ideology – Real climate science – uncertainty and risk , What do models actually tell us about the future of climate change?

We were right about sea-level rise being gradual, and that sea level used to be considerably higher – Sea level is rising; should we be worried?

We were right in showing that we are not experiencing the hottest temperatures our world has ever seen – Optimal Holocene climate is in our rear-view mirror

We were right in reporting that there is not an island of garbage the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean – Taking a critical look at the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’

We were right in reporting that the disappearance of a glacier in Iceland is not an indication that humans are destroying the planet – Funeral for a glacier

We were right in pointing out that those who recycle a lot are doing no favours for the environment – My war against really nice people – Part 2

And if you think this article makes it seem like we have grown too big for our britches, please know that a key reason why we are so accurate is that we encourage scrutiny. Intellectual humility is a cornerstone of our business model, and if you ever find a mistake in our coverage (keeping in mind that most of our news stories are produced by accomplished scientists who cite every shred of data), we are all ears – Yes, you can be boastful AND intellectually humble
