Climate love

Refusing advertising from oil and gas

Just over four years ago, the Guardian took the bold decision to stop accepting advertising from oil and gas firms. In doing so, the Guardian became the first global news organisation to institute an outright ban on taking money from companies that extract fossil fuels.
It was a move that cost the Guardian millions of pounds in future revenues but the newspaper believes was the right thing to do. These companies’ relentless thirst for oil, gas and coal is driving the climate breakdown and threatening the future of our planet.
The Guardian also refuses to work with gambling companies – and think extremely hard about all the adverts taken.
But this means The Guardian need readers to support more than ever.
Give climate love to the Guardian. If you can, support them with a donation as well.

            The guardian has taken the battle a notch higher by refusing to magnify the big oil industry and portray them as saints. The media is a very powerful tool and when well utilised it could mean all the difference.

                            What an interesting way to support environmental action from the fourth estate, The Guardian is a great example to the rest of the media houses in the world in how they can amplify their voices and forgo profits for the sake of the environment.

                              @joseph_githinji They should not only report on climate change but also take action against it in their operations.
