A call for more climate reporting

I would really like to see some in-depth ongoing investigative reporting from our local newspaper on this subject

I just don’t understand why there is no coverage on the silence of the advocates of the imminent collapse of our world due to man-made climate change.

I haven’t seen one posting recently shrilling for study groups on the need to “immediately learn farming and animal husbandry in our local world of drought”  and no repeat commentary by local politicians continuing to call themselves hypocrites for consuming petroleum-based products. There has been no insistence that Qualicum Beach institute mutual misery-water management rules that reflect the overuse situation faced in Parksville with its surging needs from new housing development.

There’s been no commentary about the rapidly-cooling ocean temperatures at both surface and deeper levels and how La Nina interferes with faulty climate model predictions, or investigations and commentary about how many people or educational institutions refuse to accept that there is science that disputes the models of histrionics.

I would really like to see some in-depth ongoing investigative reporting from our local newspaper on this subject.
