A call for more coverage of climate change
Climate change is a major issue for Florida and for Sarasota, as acknowledged in an editorial June 8 (“Storm seasons are likely to keep getting worse”). We are impacted in numerous ways, from hurricanes to sea-level rise to actions taken by the Florida Legislature.
My question is, why there is so little coverage of climate change in the Herald-Tribune?
It’s not that there isn’t news to report. I subscribe to several climate science newsletters and every week I get reports about new developments in renewable energy, business, public attitude, public policy, climate impacts past, current and future, and climate justice.
The Herald-Tribune’s frequent sources, USA Today and The Associated Press, produce lots of climate news. I see little of this information in the Herald-Tribune.
The biggest puzzle is that the newspaper is a member of The Invading Sea, a joint effort of 26 Florida news organizations. And yet I don’t see the reports from The Invading Sea in my print edition of the Herald-Tribune.
The group seeks to address the threat we face from sea-level rise, raise awareness and issue “a call to action that can’t be ignored.”
