Man approaching death unphased by climate collapse for some reason

The BBC hasn’t decided if it should be bothered about the imminent extinction of all life on the planet yet. Or parts of it haven’t, anyway. Some presenters, like John Humphrys, clearly just couldn’t give a shit:

But why? Why would a man in his later years not care about an issue that won’t significantly ramp up until after he’s already dead?

It’s a mystery.

Read on...

No it isn’t

Of course, simply being in one’s twilight years doesn’t mean you have to stop caring. You also have to be a real piece of shit. Or an idiot.

Some lucky people are all three.

A spokesperson for the BBC explained:

Look – it’s about balance. On the one hand, we have people who want our species to survive. On the other, there’s a bunch of poisonous knuckleheads who’d rather the world burn than they have to spend a second working in solidarity with others.

A BBC insider added:

We’re still not convinced climate change is a serious issue. Surely we’d be taking it seriously if it was?

Garbage 

The BBC’s handling of climate change raises a few important questions, like:

  • Why are you still paying your license fee?
  • Does the Beeb have some sort of minimum stupidity level for its presenters?

Unfortunately, the broadcaster does still ‘inform’ a great many Britons. As such, its woeful coverage needs pointing out.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
