An article on The Drum by Jonathon Green today is critical of the way climate change is presented in the news (ABC in particular), including:

“Here’s a glimpse of the enormity of the challenge, neatly described by Nick Feik in yesterday’s Fairfax press.

Consider this: of all the coal, gas and oil fields that the world’s corporations and nations have already quantified and have the legal right to exploit, 80 per cent now needs to stay in the ground if temperature rises are to be kept within 2 degrees.

Let the implications of that settle … the denial of market forces, the total reframing of energy sources and economics it implies.”
