Letter to The Telegraph:
Sir, Last week you published a series of articles attacking Extinction Rebellion and a letter from 44 Conservative MPs expressing similar anger. You contend that the actions of XR are criminal whereas XR are calling on the press and politicians to “tell the truth”.
For example, is the inability to acknowledge the media’s failings in environmental reporting really so ingrained that The Telegraph then failed to report on the WWF’s Living Planet Report which highlighted the loss of 68% of the animal population over the past 50 years?
It is no wonder that those of us who understand the true scale of the ecological emergency are so unhappy with your paper’s attempt to hide it.
