How bad can it get?

10Oct08

I ask myself this question, but not in relation to the credit crunch, but how bad the environmental crisis will have to become before newspapers will devote as many column inches to the environment as they do to the economy. A selection of today’s front pages from Newseum.

Without the environment there will be no economy, so why don’t the newspapers run stories on the environmental crisis? Is it to do with basic human psychology and our inability to imagine the future – whether it be good or bad? Are we that selfish and focused on short-term goals?

Noisy Decent Graphics has created a spoof edition of The Economist to the examples above (language warning for sensitive folk).
