I found the following quote today in www.climateprogress.com:
"Responding to Rupert Murdoch’s disinformation campaign, one Australian climate scientist put it bluntly: 'The Murdoch media empire has cost humanity perhaps one or two decades of time in the battle against climate change.'"
Or, to put it another way: perhaps 500 million murders.
I really, really, really, really hope that I am wildly exaggerating, even though the evidence suggests that maybe not.
Because 500 million here, 500 million there, and pretty soon -- perhaps 40 years from now -- those 500 million we delay too late to save will be our own great-great-grandchildren.
