Weather Channel: 21 of 25 top US corporations accept climate reality

In this 1-minute clip — from the Weather Channel’s excellent Earth Watch series — meteorologist Carl Parker takes on the conspiracy narrative, which views climate change science as a bizarre plot to topple capitalism.    Parker says

“There are problems with that narrative, and one is that major corporations, the core of our market-based economy, don’t agree.

Parker checked out the official positions of the 25-largest U.S. corporations and found,

“Of the 25 largest U.S. corporations by market-value, 21 of them have issued strong affirmative statements on climate change and man-made greenhouse gases.

The clip shows statements of concern by Hewlett-Packard, CitiBank, Shell Oil, Walmart, and Ford, e.g.

“Climate change poses significant risks to the global economy that require urgent action. . . ” (CitiBank)

Parker concludes,

“While there’s been some debate about the level of follow-through, nonetheless these statements tell us that most of our top corporations are not interested in aligning with the idea of climate change as a ruse.”
