Disinformation not misinformation

I was misinformed about the term "misinformation," which originally I misused in my post of September 6th (I have just edited the term out). I meant to use "disinformation," which Wikipedia defines as "the deliberate dissemination of false information" -- clearly a topic of professional interest to librarians and other information professionals.

For examples of disinformation related to climate change and sustainability, see the web site The Heat is Online at
