The subtitle of David Ray Griffin's new book, Unprecedented, asks the most serious question raised by global warming, Can Civilization Survive the CO2 Crisis\? The book argues that of all the factors that have led to this crisis, none is more important than the failure of America's mainstream media. The following excerpt, after introducing this issue, discusses one of the most important dimensions of the media's failure. The book was published before The Guardian, which had all along provided the best coverage, began its climate-change campaign, referring to the threat from climate change as "the biggest story in the world."
