A handful of right wing media billionnaires have been using their newspapers as propaganda rags to attack climate science and oppose climate action, writes Donnachadh McCarthy. Yet even 'climate leader' companies like M&S are fuelling their profits by advertising with them. Now a new #Deadvertisment campaign is demanding them to stop, right now.
If these papers stopped their horrific climate-sceptic propaganda and instead positively helped the effort to save Britain's future, the fossil fuel industry's successful lobbying to block government actions would be swept away.
