Complainant Name:
Mr Steven Buxton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Steven Buxton complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article was inaccurate and misleading when it stated that Arctic sea ice levels were "already less than the lowest on record in 2007".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following letter from the complainant:

An article on July 21 stated that Arctic sea ice levels were ‘already less than the lowest on record in 2007.' In fact, ice levels had not reached the record low of September 2007 and 2010 was the third lowest ice cover according to satellite records.
