Italian scientists have urged the media to report on the underlying problem, saying recent extreme weather events are due to climate change, not bad weather.
According to the daily newspaper La Stampa, 100 scientists, including Nobel Prize winner in physics Giorgio Parisi, a professor at Rome’s Sapienza University, issued an appeal to the media on Nov. 27.
“There are journalists who still define the extreme and increasingly frequent weather events that have hit Italy and other European countries – heat waves, windstorms, hailstones the size of apples, wildfires – as bad weather,” the scientists wrote.
“These are not extreme weather events, they are climate change events,” he said. “If journalists don’t talk about the causes and solutions of climate change, 카지노사이트킴 they can make people feel powerless at a historic moment when we can build a better future.”
The scientists also emphasized that the media’s role is crucial to achieving Europe’s goals, such as reducing carbon emissions by 55% by 2030.
