The top climate scientists have all warned that climate change is a dire threat to our future. Yet when the top news networks report on climate change, they’re not portraying an accurate picture. According to an analysis from Public Citizen, only 3.5 percent of news stories about global warming or climate change use the words “crisis” or “emergency.”
That’s a problem. If viewers don’t know how urgent this problem has become, they won’t understand why we need to act now. This week, urge ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and NBC to call climate change a crisis by signing the petition below. If you post about climate on social media, please use the hashtags #CoverClimateNow and #EndClimateSilence.
