Maybe you bought a hybrid automobile. Maybe you take public transportation instead of owning a car or truck. Maybe you have outfitted your home with the latest energy-saving gadgets in an effort to reduce your carbon footprint. These are laudable and effective ways to combat global climate change. And while those efforts do have an effect, there are other ways to make great strides in stemming the catastrophic effects of climate change.
In this “Truthout Interviews,” Bruce Melton and I discuss global climate change and the way in which the media tends to amplify climate change deniers out of “fairness.” We highlight a technology called “sky mining” that may be the best technological approach to making a lasting effect on reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.
The stakes have never been higher (and our need for your support has never been greater).
For over two decades, Truthout’s journalists have worked tirelessly to give our readers the news they need to understand and take action in an increasingly complex world. At a time when we should be reaching even more people, big tech has suppressed independent news in their algorithms and drastically reduced our traffic. Less traffic this year has meant a sharp decline in donations.
The fact that you’re reading this message gives us hope for Truthout’s future and the future of democracy. As we cover the news of today and look to the near and distant future we need your help to keep our journalists writing.
Please do what you can today to help us keep working for the coming months and beyond.
