Frame reports by climate scientists within "two-sides" segments in which the views of denialists are treated.

Publish editorials expressing scepticism about climate science.

Ignore or tone down reports for the sake of not alienating advertisers.

Exclude climate change from television's Sunday morning talk shows, but instead make it central.

Ignore the connection to climate change while reporting extreme weather events.

Positively, the media will do everything they can to inform people of the reality of the climate emergency.

The media will treat the climate threat to the continuation of civilization as the overwhelmingly most important story of our time.

Just as U.S. newspapers and films did all they could to help the mobilization to prevent defeat by the Axis Powers, today's media will be committed to helping civilization from being destroyed by global warming.
