Rupert Murdoch Thinks Climate Change Isn’t a Big Deal

Rupert Murdoch has two words for scientists and anyone else who believes climate change is having a disastrous impact on the way we live: Oh c’mon. In an interview with Australia’s Sky News, Murdoch said the rising temperature of the Earth wasn’t a big deal.

“We should approach climate change with great skepticism,” he explained. “Climate change has been going on as long as the planet is here. And there will always be a little bit of it.”

While Murdoch admitted that climate change might result in the sea level rising and thus devouring entire islands, he had an easy solution for that. ”The Maldives might disappear, but we can’t mitigate that, we can’t stop it, we just have to stop building vast houses on seashores,” said the 83-year-old News Corp CEO. Now that’s some smart thinking.
