Media Denial

Even though scientists predicted the global-warming drought, extreme heat and wildfires in western Australia, when the 2009-02 wildfires exploded through New South Wales fanned by the 47°C (117°F) heat, the media never once mentioned global warming. Why would they do that? Because their advertisers asked them to. Why would they do that? To make more money in the short term.
