Challenging media to do better covering climate breakdown 20.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Media Matters The Extinction Rebellion chapter in Ottawa, inspired by the example of Extinction Rebellion in the U.K., recently called on the CBC to do better in its reporting of the existential issue of our time: climate breakdown. That's because mainstream media plays a significant role in shaping public awareness as well as framing political narratives on key issues. What media covers, what it chooses not to cover, how stories are reported, and the relative priority a story is given are all critical factors in public engagement. On December 21, 2018, Extinction Rebellion organized coordinated actions at BBC offices in central London, Bangor, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Glasgow, Sheffield, Truro and the bureau in Berlin. Their letter to the BBC stated that the national broadcaster should place "the climate and ecological emergency as its top editorial and corporate priority…" It said the BBC should give climate change the same "level of urgency the corporation placed on informing the public about ...

Global warming is unstoppable while capitalism blocks prevention 1.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Ed Finn The tenacious refusal of the world’s business and political leaders to heed the warnings of climate scientists about global warming raises the stark possibility that it may already be too late. The tipping point beyond which concerted preventive action becomes impracticable is just 12 years away, according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. That’s all the time the IPCC scientists give us to keep the global temperature from rising above 1.5 degrees Celsius. If it rises higher than that, they warn, the consequent intensity of extreme heat, pollution, droughts, floods, hurricanes, wildfires, rising sea levels, and consequent mounting hunger, poverty, and mass displacements will annihilate billions of people. Realistically, what are the odds that the scientists’ latest warning about global warming will be heeded, any more than their many previous alarms have been in the past? I’d put the odds against at 100-to-1, perhaps even 1,000-to-1. Starting with the Club of Rome’s seminal ...
