Of course news corp has a editorial position on climate change. The wealthiest news media corp in the world is actively working against climate change solutions for profit.

But never trust a Murdoch. This is probably brand positioning.

Anyone else notice the moon ring/winter halo and Jupiter (little white dot) last night?

A 22° halo is an optical phenomenon that belongs to the family of ice-crystal halos. Its form is a ring with an apparent radius of approximately 22° around the Sun or Moon. When visible around the Moon, it is called a moon ring or winter halo. It forms as direct sunlight or moonlight is refracted in millions of hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere.[1] The halo appears large; its radius is roughly the length of an outstretched hand at arm's length.
