New research from the University of Edinburgh shows that mankind is not the main cause of climate change, but this research is unsurprisingly being ignored by major media outlets.
No one can deny that one of the most important issues in Western societies is climate change, as it is the center of public and political debate in almost all of the countries within our culture.
One would expect, that in this case, that the new study which shows the problems of climate change in a new light would be subjected to discussion and analysis. When the newest research from the University of Edinburgh was released, no such thing happened. Their results were completely ignored by major media outlets. But why?
To answer that question, we must look into the conclusions reached by the team of professor Paul Palmer. They analyzed data from two artificial satellites between 2014 and 2017 with the goal to locate the areas featuring the largest greenhouse gas emissions throughout the globe.
It turned out that the largest carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions came not from the most developed countries, but from the poorest countries of West Africa.
In what would be a surprise to most climate change activists, the emissions from that region come not from the direct workings of humans but are connected to natural processes occurring in nature.
