Tell Rupert Murdoch: Get the Facts Straight on Climate Science
Global warming is already having tremendous impacts on temperatures around the world threatening public health, our food and water supplies, and our economy—and these impacts will only worsen if we do nothing. We must act now to reduce dangerous heat-trapping emissions, and we must work together—on a global level.
Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation is a global media company that owns everything from newspapers to television networks to film studios. The company has stated publicly that "News Corporation is committed to addressing its impact on climate change." They also say they "hope to engage our audiences and enable them to find ways to reduce carbon emissions in their own lives."
So why is News Corp giving so much air time and column inches to people who attack climate science and mislead the public?
News Corp has broadcast and published media pundits claims that the earth's temperatures have flat-lined, that arctic ice is increasing, and that there is no such thing as global warming.
Please urge News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch to match his corporation's green pledges with real action. Tell him we aren't entertained by scientific misinformation.
Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!
