Rupert Murdoch Thinks You're Overreacting About Climate Change

Posted: Updated:

Rupert Murdoch shrugged off the notion that climate change is a big deal in an interview on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky News Australia (which he partially owns), Murdoch dismissed the alarming reports coming from scientists about the devastating impact that climate change is causing to the planet.

"We should approach climate change with great skepticism," he said. "Climate change has been going on as long as the planet is here. There will always be a little bit of it."

Murdoch acknowledged that the changing planet could wipe out small countries like the Maldives, but he had a quick fix for that.

"We can't stop it, we've just got to stop building vast houses on seashores," he added. "The world has been changing for thousands and thousands of years, it’s just a lot more complicated today because we are more advanced.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Murdoch's Fox News has been found to give its viewers the most inaccurate information on climate change of any American network.
