Tell CNBC: Climate Denial Is Bad For Business
Sign the Petition
To CNBC Chief Executive Officer and President Mark Hoffman:
Tell Joe Kernen and your other on-air personalities and guests to stop denying climate science and start reporting the facts on the economic risks of fossil-fueled climate change.
Earlier this week, President Obama gave a major speech marking a renewed effort to address climate change, but CNBC didn't air one minute of it. This journalistic negligence is a part of a disturbing pattern of irresponsible climate reporting at the network.
A recent Media Matters analysis found that the majority of CNBC's climate coverage in 2013 cast doubt on climate science, with the worst offender being Squawk Box host Joe Kernen, who recently compared climate scientists to "high priests" whose work should not be trusted.
Sign our petition to tell CNBC Chief Executive Officer and President Mark Hoffman that his network's climate denial is bad for business.
