Not only referring to her respectfully as Scotland’s First Minister, using quality impartial reporting from the Press Association, on 1st July, the Standard informs us:
Ms Sturgeon, who was on a panel alongside climate activist Greta Thunberg and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall, also announced £100,000 of funding for the Global Climate Assembly that will make recommendations for discussions at the Cop26 summit.
At the virtual conference, she said: “The climate crisis – with its inter-related threats of climate change, nature loss and pollution – remains the single biggest challenge the world faces.
“Cop26 represents the world’s best chance – and possibly one of our last chances – to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
“One of the great injustices of the climate crisis is that the people and countries who are worst affected are usually those who have done least to cause it.
“At Glasgow, their needs must be recognised, and their voices must be heard. The Scottish Government is determined to help with that process.
“All of us – and governments in particular – now need to summon that same sense of urgency in tackling the climate crisis.
“If we do, Cop26 can become a global turning point – one which ensures that as we recover from the pandemic, we create a greener and fairer world.”
Wow! on stage with Greta Thunberg and Jane Goodall? I’ve read about news values. This is a headline grabber how did Scotland’s media cover it?
Well, the National and the Scotsman gave it a reasonable spread but not exactly headlined.
BBC Scotland? Nope. Not a word.

Chester is a Labour-held seat, for the moment. MP Christian Matheson is a Burnham supporter. BBC Scotland loved to report on the FM and Burnham but then he is a powerful Blairite man and Thunberg or Goodall are just women that millions have admired for their courage.
