The DisInformation Chronicle Highlights of 2021
Thanks for reading and sharing, stay with us in 2022!
Thanks so much for staying with us as we got off the ground in 2021. We’ve put out dozens of investigations, interviews, and essays that touch on a wide mix of corruption topics. Please keep reading and sharing these articles, as we continue into 2022.
Over the last year, we partnered a couple times with DeSmog, including a two-part review of the “dirty dozen”—twelve of the most interesting internal fossil fuel records that document corporate climate denial. This year we will be co-publishing once a month with The Journal of Scientific Practice and Integrity (JoSPI), an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on scientific misconduct and corporate influence.
Below are some of this year’s pieces, in case you missed them. Please share with friends.
Best holiday wishes and stay safe,
Paul D. Thacker and The DisInformation Chronicle staff
