Channel 7 cover Climate Change

Two surprises. 1. Commercial TV did a more-than-30-seconds report on climate change.

2. It had substance. They even had Dr Karl - a great public communicator of science.

I liked Dr Karl's analogy of climate change:

It's like a bushfire that's been going since 1988 and we're still deciding whether to call the fire brigade.

This level of reporting may have been a one-off Christmas present. But i hope instead that it's Channel 7's new year's resolution. More reporting on serious world issues - less celebrity gossip.
