Tell Fox News: Stop the "junk science"
On May 9, 2007, Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp. which owns and operates Fox News Channel announced that his company will join the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Murdoch stated: "Climate change poses clear, catastrophic threats. We may not agree on the extent but we certainly can't afford the risk of inaction..."
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. A quick read of Milloy's website and you will find the usual laundry list of scientific claims that have long been dismissed by the scientific community -- the experts in the field of climate science.
