The first thing Murdoch and News Corp. can do to show that they are truly committed to fighting global warming is ending its reporting of misinformation about the science behind global warming.

For example, Steve Milloy (aka. "The Junkman") is a regular Fox News columnist and tireless campaigner in the war against climate science.
