Fox News commentator Steve Milloy runs the website Junk Science. With it Milloy issues reports and press releases to refute scientific findings.
In his press releases, Milloy makes sure to cite credible sources. Like the time he sent “a news release issued by Steve Milloy repeatedly quoting Steve Milloy, including bolstering an argument made by Steve Milloy by quoting a [Wall Street Journal] article written by Steve Milloy.”

Beyond quoting himself, what type of proof did Milloy provide?

Recently Milloy turned his attacks on the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Summit and most aggressively on teen activist Greta Thunberg.
So Wild Geerters—aka @classiclib3ral—decided to reshare Milloy’s climate wisdom again because of things like this:

Others quickly added their own equally sound science.
While many suggested Milloy’s science was what might be junk.
Again, knowing your sources is critical.
As usual, Milloy has not responded to any of the criticism.
And therein lies the problem.
