Media organisations around the world are working together to cover climate change more effectively. — h/t Magoo
So says Stuff, explaining:
Stuff.co.nz has joined 24 other media organisations from around the world in a network that will share climate change stories in the lead-up to a United Nations summit in Paris in December. The 25 founding partners of the Climate Publishing Network were brought together by The Guardian, El Pais and the Global Editors Network.
I suppose they might include some sceptical points of view, but I’m not holding my breath. At least The Guardian doesn’t hide the group’s activist intent, but puts it openly:
An unprecedented alliance of news publishers including the Guardian, El País, Le Monde and China Daily have agreed to share climate change content to raise awareness in the runup to the next UN summit.
Raising awareness among the public means no more and no less than persuading the “public” of the merits of reducing emissions. They make it sound like an efficiency drive, as though they cared about their competitor’s success. But the catastrophes of climate change, real and imagined, are a publisher’s dream. Sharing scoops is the last thing they want.
In reality, they see the profitable parade of present and future disasters threatened by sceptical activities and articles. Banding together to minimise the sceptical influence during this crucial pre-conference period could help bring about an international agreement and thus preserve the climate change pretence, I mean plan, for a very long time.
Because from the publishers’ point of view, it’s not so much a climate change plan as a success-beyond-the-wildest-dreams-of-a-climate-change-publisher’s knighthood and superannuation plan.
This cabal is truly unprecedented and, since journalists have ready access to research information that rebuts all the reasons to panic over the climate, the only motivation for this Climate Publishing Network is a conspiracy to keep the global warming scare alive because it sells newspapers. Even as a lie, doom is newsworthy, so let’s pretend the predictions of doom mean something.
This cartel’s propaganda will come to seem the truth
The Guardian says, “Climate change is the biggest challenge humanity is currently facing and requires new ways of collaborating across geographic as well as political boundaries.”
They call it collaborating. These are newspapers, talking for the first time in history of collaborating. Believers in the church of global warming no doubt trust that this wonderful new cartel markets world-saving news and information, not false science and propaganda against its enemies. I can disabuse them of that notion, for this evil empire plans to disband on the last day of the COP 21 summit on 11 December.
This coterie of conspirators likes it not at all to stay wedded to its foes even a day longer than absolutely necessary for its unspeakable purpose, which is to obstruct the truth, obfuscate climate science and bring a black curtain of ignorance down across the human race. Everywhere we turn for the next six-and-a-half months we’ll see the same distorted stories of present and future climate disaster.
It will come to seem the truth.
One must spend a large amount of time reading to keep abreast of the latest developments. The ordinary person doesn’t care for that, so, not knowing any better, they agree to whatever seemingly-credible nonsense is most recently trumpeted at them.
This sinister move puts a large chunk of popular readership under the sway of the activists leading the climate panic.
