Network Sunday news shows covered climate change more in the first half of 2014 than in the last four years combined.
This follows a push from nine U.S. Senators for increased coverage on the broadcast networks.
But although these shows gave the issue more coverage, at times they used false balance, enshrouding the scientific consensus surrounding climate change.
More climate change coverage isn’t enough. It needs to be accurate, too.

Anonymous asked: why is it okay for a black person to call another black person a nigger but when a white person does it, it's racist?
why is it that when rich white people invaded North America and killed millions of Native Americans they were called “settlers” but when poor Black and Brown people cross the border they’re called “illegals”?
why is it that when rich white people kidnapped sold and enslaved millions of Black people it was called a “trade”, but when poor Black and Brown people steal products it’s called “theft”?
in no way to shit on any immigrant to this country, and i praise them because of the fact that many come here and swallow their pride doing menial jobs to reach their respective goals.
i’ve noticed that often when the conversation comes up, however, a remark is often made about what americans are willing to do. americans in this case meaning POC, i.e. lazy niggaz.
everyone needs to remember who is still owed and has not been paid for building this country. This is the never spoken reason to the never asked question as to WHY wont americans do the jobs that many immigrants take. Now, i cant speak for wht people, but many more black people would have those jobs if they were offered to and hired for them. employers know black people here are OWED to a great extent, with new immigrants having much less leverage; and a nigga would be satisfied if racist white-identifying people would at least stop blocking or negating our progress and killing our leaders and children before they site crime stats.
