It’s the final countdown to the November world leaders’ Climate Conference — and we need all hands on deck to hold Scott Morrison accountable to delivering real climate action now.
The Murdoch Media is gearing up to provide cover for Morrison to go to the conference with a distant 2050 target with no real plan to get there.
And they’re likely to be helped by an online disinformation machine: a network of extreme social media accounts and bots, that attract more viewers through high engagement on controversial posts.
Together, they will spin stories that keep delaying climate action.
But the scientific community says waiting decades for climate action is not fast enough to protect the people and places we love.
We need to reach people now with a strong counter story that cuts through Morrison’s spin, builds momentum and holds him accountable to real climate justice now #ThisCantWait.
