Did you notice as well? The paucity of coverage about the climate change rallies on the major cable and broadcast channels. Occasional mentions, but nothing sustained. You could see it on the Weather Channel, but not MSNBC. I have been really struck by this. As well as the lack of discussion about what has happened. Here is one of the best accounts of the experience I have seen.
Re: No one Cares About Climate Change
JOHN D. SUTTER – CNN
NEW YORK — You could be forgiven for thinking no one cares — or even should care, right now — about climate change.
For starters, there’s all that other terrifying stuff competing for attention: President Barack Obama’s war with ISIS; the Ebola outbreak, which recently put Sierra Leone on national lockdown; Ukraine; Scotland; wife-beating athletes. That scary guy in Pennsylvania.
The world seems like a pretty big mess right now.
The climate? Not top of the agenda.
ROBERT STEELE. Exactly. This is what I said when Naomi Klein tried it on — these people are chasing fads, not reality. Reality starts with poor people — billions of them.
