Does anybody care that July was the hottest month on record?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a dire warning about the state of the earth's climate, including the fact that July 2015 was the hottest month since recordings began in 1880, and that 2015 is on track to be the hottest year on record.

How upsetting is this?    Well, in the three days since the report was made public, cable news has hardly noticed.    MSNBC and CNN have each discussed it five times, but Fox News?   Not at all.

During that same period (as reported by Sam Stein of Huffington Post), Donald Trump was mentioned a total of 750 times by those three stations.   CNN aired an hour long interview with himself and rebroadcast it several times.

So much for our news priorities -- "As the World Turns Burns."
