The Arsenal, Venice
Francesco Guardi, 1755-1760
Australia is now “the world’s first developed nation to repeal carbon laws that put a price on greenhouse-gas emissions.”
Why? Largely thanks to the aggressive campaign against the nation’s carbon tax led by newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch. (Yes, as in Fox News’ Murdoch).
It’s no coincidence. Murdoch’s media influence has a direct connection to climate change denial.
