Media mogul Rupert Murdoch announced in late 2006 that News Corporation had a responsibility to ‘take the lead’ with regard to climate change. Murdoch subsequently revealed a number of initiatives aimed at reducing his media empire’s carbon footprint, including the ‘CoolChange’ program, which was known as ‘1Degree’ in Australia. Murdoch’s stance on climate change came as a surprise to many observers, given that he had traditionally been a climate change sceptic. News Corp’s stance on climate change is attracting renewed scrutiny amid criticism of its newspapers’ coverage of the bushfires crisis.
