Climate Change and the Media

#TransparencyMatters because climate change is undoubtedly the biggest threat the world has ever seen. Yet Governments like the UK are failing to seriously adopt clean modern energy. I believe this is due to extremely wealthy oil and gas companies successfully lobbying the government and having too much influence over our media. Everyone knows renewable energy is an extremely good thing for our planet but fossil fuel companies know it's a pretty bad thing for their profits. Most journalism will continue to be undermined by a fear to properly report the facts about climate change. However, a greater access to information will help campaigners discredit sources which are aggressively pursuing profits over the environment.
