The World at One, Radio 4, 27 March 2017: Finding by the Executive Complaints Unit

Complaint
A listener complained that Nick Bryant, in a report from Florida, had overstated the effect of global warming on sea levels.

Outcome
Nick Bryant’s statements about rising sea levels were soundly-based, except for the claim that the sea level at Miami was rising at ten times the global mean. Data from the measurement stations closest to Miami show little divergence from the global mean.
Partly upheld

Further action
The World at One has been advised not to repeat scientific claims about a specific event without confirming them.
