Fox News journos directed to promote AGW denial

While News Corp proudly advertised three years ago that it would be carbon neutral by now, Fox News can't even serve up a neutral report on the state of climate science.

Literally.

They are not simply not allowed to, as an email edict from Fox News Washington managing editor Bill Sammon to all Fox News producers now proves:
From: Sammon, Bill
To: 169 -SPECIAL REPORT; 036 -FOX.WHU; 054 -FNSunday; 030 -Root (FoxNews.Com); 050 -Senior Producers; 051 -Producers; 069 -Politics; 005 -Washington

Subject: Given the controversy over the veracity of climate change data...

...we should refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question. It is not our place as journalists to assert such notions as facts, especially as this debate intensifies.
This happened during reporting on the pivotal climate change conference, COP15 Copenhagen, in December 2009. The "controversy over the veracity of climate change data" Bill was referring to here is the 'Climategate CRU hacked emails scandal' that was much puffed-up by biased media outfits like Fox News as evidenced of a disinformation conspiracy by climate scientists, and subsequently debunked all too late.

The catch-all "critics" turn out to be fossil-fuel funded think-tank spokesmen, such as American Enterprise Institute's Kenneth Green. Not peer-reviewed climate scientists.

And, the rest is rather depressing history.

I'm concerned about my impact on the environment. I heat my home with heating oil but am worried about what this is doing to the environment. I live in a rural area of lincolnshire so there's not much alternative to heating my home with oil except wood and LPG... but I don't know if this is even more harmful.

I have just found this site http://www.comparefueloil.co.uk/ which offers Group Buying Days, this seems like a great way to help the environment because you can order with others which helps to keep tankers off the roads more, reducing CO2 emissions.
I would like to see more information on the internet about the effects of heating oil on the environment. On most climate change sites I go on there are articles on gas and electric heating but little on the effects of heating oil.

Does anyone have any figures about heating oil and ways to minimize my impact on the environment?
