In so doing, the media is able to punch holes to the ‘facts’ about climate change. However, through research and climate studies, the effects of climate change have been evident, this means more sensitization is required based on appeal to their reasoning and logic.

Public awareness of facts on climate change is not tantamount to the inexistence of the facts. CNN hosts relied on research that only shows the state of public awareness and perception. This is a biased view because individuals are not able to understand the scenario during the old days; scientists are able to create a scenario where the past and the present are used to predict the future.
