In our Furlong home, we watch THE NEWS. We follow POLITICS. We have our own opinions.
I know that our media do not report reality, they make reality to guarantee the people will think what they are told to.
In order to actually know what is happening in the world, one must not believe THE NEWS that is reported in THE NEWS.
We avidly follow other sources of news. It is really difficult not to become a conspiracy theorist when you follow what is really happening in the world.
We have not heard anything about this in THE NEWS – except for one lonely article in The Guardian which needs sharing. I saw it a while back on Forbes.
This is serious shit that makes the United Nations next international conference on climate change in Paris next month (COP 21) look like a tiny fart in a massive thunderstorm. But they will find a way to profit from bashing Western Countries.
“I’ve often wondered how the media would respond when eco-apocalypse struck. I pictured the news programmes producing brief, sensational reports, while failing to explain why it was happening or how it might be stopped. Then they would ask their financial correspondents how the disaster affected share prices, before turning to the sport. As you can probably tell, I don’t have an ocean of faith in the industry for which I work. What I did not expect was that they would ignore it.”
