Fox News climate denial and conspiracy theories in 2019


Published on Dec 21, 2019

In 2019, Fox took climate change denial to insane new levels even as global temperatures reached record heights, natural disasters wreaked havoc, and youth environmental activism led millions of people in protests around the world. Even if you just look at news of the past few weeks, Australia is on fire, the oceans are running out of oxygen, and the Amazon rainforest is at a “tipping point.”

The climate denial narratives on Fox run the gamut from claims that “there’s science on both sides of this issue” to dismissals of the climate crisis as “medieval witchcraft.” Naturally, the hosts and guests also pushed a number of right-wing agenda items like government deregulation and protecting the wealthy.

Of course, Fox host Tucker Carlson managed to bring discussion of the issue back to his own racist agenda, noting in one segment that “more people were killed last year in the United States by illegal aliens than were killed by climate change.”

What Some of the 100 London Hunger Strikers Had To Say | Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion   Published on Dec 21, 2019

“This is a way of just peacefully sitting here, informing the public without disrupting them,” Jane explained cheerfully while on day 7 of her hunger strike.

Humanity is at a crossroads as it faces an unprecedented Climate and Ecological Emergency. Here in the UK we joined in the Global Hunger Strike to demand our political leaders act now on the crises we are facing.

With our hunger strike we called for a change in business as usual, for any new Government to make the Climate & Ecological Emergency its highest and most fundamental responsibility.

Through our hunger strike we stood in humble solidarity as we learned to feel what the Global South has been facing for centuries. The risks that their communities families and children have been facing as a daily trauma are now becoming the risks to our communities families and children in Europe too.

Through our hunger strike we demanded a “Politics of Humility” from our politicians and we continue to demand that our Parliament show more humility towards its duties to its citizens rather than being entranced by power, influence and ideologies.
