Front page news? No.
State-corporate media structures help Big Business and ignore/downplay all immediate existential threats:
Industrialised animal agriculture
Collapse of ecosystems
Warming is underestimated and faster than expected:

For a long time many scientists have said temperatures will exceed 2°C:
3°C or 4°C could well hit this century:
2.5°C - 4°C now looks inevitable this century in my opinion.
Scientists have suggested that only 1 billion people could survive on a 4°C Earth:
Peer-reviewed science exists showing that warming could 'exceed 3.5–4C by 2050':
See this thread for further details:
Billions of humans will only die if there is a failure to transform unjust/destructive systems, or if warming is too severe.
Currently billions of insects, birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians are being killed by corporate capitalism. Humans will perish as well at this rate.
