Two Major British Newspapers Concede Climate Change is Real & Human-Caused
No, it’s not an April Fools’ joke. Two of the UK’s major newspapers, the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail conceded Monday that climate change is real and human-caused. The papers have previously been hotbeds for climate skepticism in both their news and opinion pages, according to a recent article in The Guardian. The two papers’ shift in opinion represents a key turning point in the world’s progress toward climate solutions. As more and more people and institutions start to accept the reality of climate change, policymakers and individuals alike will be able to move the conversation away from a debate about the science and toward a discussion about how to solve the problem.
