Today’s Action: Push your local newspaper and tv station to drop fossil fuels advertisements!

Swedish newspaper Dagens ETC has made the choice to go green – by turning down all advertisements from fossil fuel-based goods and services. Rejecting this potential income, the newspaper stated, “It is a matter of credibility and a conversation that needs to be had right now.”

A bold move that we applaud, and need to see more of. How can journalism truly move us forward in our examination of and fight against climate change while directly benefiting from the companies who wish to see it continue? Not unlike a politician receiving a donation, it’s a hypocrisy at the least and a dangerous conflict of interest at the worst…not to mention the effectiveness of ad placement in urging consumers to purchase goods and services made with fossil fuel.

Contact your most frequented local newspaper and television stations and urge them to follow Dagens ETC’s lead by dropping advertising from all fossil fuel-based goods and services, thereby removing their conflict of interest in covering climate change stories.

The recent flooding in Jakarta, Indonesia, has killed at least 66 and displaced at least 36,000. Worse, Jakarta, home to 10 million, is one of the first major cities scientists believe will need to be abandoned due to rising ocean levels – it will be almost completely submerged by 2050.

And in nearby Australia, catastrophic bushfires have killed an estimated 1 billion animals (and this excludes fish, frogs, bats, and insects, so the actual number is significantly higher). These fires, like those recently seen in California, are also attributed to climate change.

Addressing climate change in an impactful way will not come through one single policy, politician, or lifestyle adjustment – it’s going to take an across-the-board effort from every individual and every industry. But our news sources have widespread influence over their readers and viewers – and thus, so do their ads. Urging newspapers and tv stations to divest from fossil fuel money is one significant step down the path to saving our planet and ourselves.

Urge your local television station and newspaper to divest from all advertising from fossil fuel-based goods and services, and send them Dagens ETC’s statement of intent for inspiration.
