Taft, a former booker for news shows, explains that it is like pulling teeth to get a climate scientist on television, even at the height of a disaster like the great northwest heat wave. One problem with having a handful of corporations give us our news is that those corporations invest in other corporations including Big Oil and Big Coal. There may well be financial reasons for which the bosses don’t want a big deal made out of the climate emergency. There is money to be made fighting wars in distant poor countries. Someone has to manufacture the bombs to drop on the people over there. There is no money to be made for corporations in not selling gasoline. Hence the radio silence we get from our television media on the biggest terror threat to the US in history, the climate emergency.
