We need big-picture climate stories, now
Americans are losing interest in the climate crisis. Newspapers have a responsibility to wake them up.
If I worked at a Serious Major Newspaper or Magazine, I would be pushing hard this week to have editors assign a major, big-picture cover story about coronavirus and climate change.
The headline would be “Climate Change, a Deadly Crisis, Accelerates Amid Pandemic.” Or maybe something lighter: “Two Crises, Both Deadly, Collide And Ruin Lives.”
