to the eUpdate
When we examine the impact of how the media depicts climate change, we find frequent reports of individuals who sense that the problem is beyond their control. In fact, Media and Climate Change Observatory founder Max Boykoff identifies a trend of daily fear, misery, and doom, which leaves readers feeling hopeless. Thus, it’s important for us to examine how we share and publish climate stories. Americans are moving steadily toward a sustainable future that benefits people and communities, despite rollbacks on climate policy. Meaningful climate solutions are within reach, and thousands of individuals are already working to cut energy use, use more renewables, and reduce waste. Together, we can get more people involved in the climate change conversation. Find out how ecoAmerica supports climate action and advocacy through our tools, resources, and stories that magnify hopeful solutions in this month’s eUpdate.
