Taking a look at what didn’t happen this week

This image from video provided by NASA shows the likely 2019 minimum extent of ice in the Arctic Sea on Sept. 18, compared with the average minimum from 1981-2010 (red circle). Articles circulating online in early October wrongly suggest that NASA has rejected human responsibility for climate change, instead attributing the phenomenon to variations in Earth’s axis and tilt.
Greta Thunberg pauses as she speaks Sept. 9 at the Society for Ethical Culture in New York. “No – Church of Sweden has (obviously) not proclaimed Greta Thunberg as successor of Jesus Christ,” Martin Larsson, a spokesman with the Church of Sweden, told the The Associated Press in an email. However, in 2018, one of its parishes did, tweeting in Swedish: “Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now assigned one of his successors, namely Greta Thunberg.”
In this Sept. 7, 2018, file photo, protesters burn an Iranian flag after storming and burning the Iranian consulate building in Basra, Iraq. A falsely captioned version of this photo began circulating on social media as protests escalated in Iraq in early October, incorrectly claiming that it shows protesters burning an Iranian flag in Baghdad as Iraqis held anti-government protests around the country.
