Cli­mate-change story was buried in pa­per

Times Colonist - - Comment -

Re: “Re­port warns of cat­a­strophic global warm­ing,” Oct. 9. This was the most im­por­tant ar­ti­cle in the whole pa­per. A mat­ter of life or pos­si­ble death or de­struc­tion for ev­ery­one on this planet. News that ev­ery­one needs to see about a sub­ject that ev­ery adult on the face of this Earth should be giv­ing se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion.

And the Times Colonist buried it on page A10. Where are the pa­per’s scru­ples?

We cit­i­zens of this world de­pend on the me­dia to make sure that we re­ceive im­por­tant news about sit­u­a­tions that might bring us po­ten­tial harm. Ob­vi­ously, we can’t count on the Times Colonist for this.

The Times Colonist should be ashamed of it­self, play­ing pol­i­tics when the qual­ity of peo­ple’s lives, the ex­tinc­tion of whole species and the end of ecosys­tems are hang­ing in the bal­ance.

I am dis­gusted! Anita Cox Vic­to­ria
