In Australia, do networks and publications owned by Rupert Murdoch, generally deny or down play the impacts of human actions on climate change?

If so, what are some major cases where they advocated against curbing the impacts of climate change?

    Could people who down vote, leave a feedback as well please? I would be happy to update the question... – Hooman Bahreini Jul 18 at 2:33

    I haven’t downvoted or closevoted, but a quick google would indicate the answer is “Yes”. – Andrew Grimm Jul 18 at 3:19

    Closers: this seems mighty on-topic. Global warming, (or its euphemism "climate change"), is a relevant political topic, as are the actions of king-makers like Murdoch, as is public opinion and propaganda et al. – agc Jul 18 at 14:45

    Well, in view of the fact that Australia produces a grand total of 1.3 percent of the world's CO2 emissions (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas_emissions_by_Australia), they'd be quite correct in denying, at least, that Australia's reduction of such emissions is going to make a lick of difference to the world's climate. – Meir Jul 19 at 12:38

    @Meir Considering the total number of Australian citizens is about 0.33% of the world, they'd also be correct in accepting, at least, that Australia emits more than 4 times more greenhouse gasses than would be expected. – DonFusili Jul 19 at 15:01
