Weekend Media Roundup: COP-20 Ignored by Sunday Talkies, Platts Interview on North Dakota Oil Regulations, and Video of Greenpeace Activists Damaging World Heritage Site

Two weeks ago, the New York Times warned that humankind faces “extinction” unless the international community reached a diplomatic breakthrough at the 20th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Lima Peru. Despite these dire stakes, the Lima climate confab wrapped up this weekend with yet another empty agreement—thereby dooming human civilization, if the Grey Lady is to be believed—and not a single Sunday network news talk show gave any airtime to COP-20. Indeed, nary a single powerhouse roundtable even mentioned climate change. Thus, it would seem that networks give as little priority to climate change as do American voters. This is why opposition to climate change mitigation policies is healthily bipartisan in the U.S. Congress. Moving on to stories that actually made the news, the highlight of this Sunday’s (invaluable) Platts Energy Week with Bill Loveless was an informative and wide-ranging interview with Platts Senior Editor Brian Scheid regarding new North Dakota regulations for the volatility (i.e., combustibility) of oil produced and transported in the State. Finally, I’ll conclude by posting Youtube video of Greenpeace activists damaging the Nazca lines, a cultural landmark in Peru, in an effort to promote green energy at COP-20. As reported by the New York Times, you can hear “their shoes crunching over the dry ground.” That is, you can hear them desecrating the site, which was designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Peruvian authorities are outraged by the stunt, but the activists skipped town to avoid prosecution, according to the Times.
