Use your voice to add solutions to the news coverage
September 13, 2021

Amidst this hot, dry and severe summer, there’s a lot of dire coverage of climate impacts in the news right now. But do you know what’s been largely missing? What we can do about it. The more people hear about and see climate solutions happening around them, the more confident they are in the transition away from fossil fuels and taking actions for change.

You can help by writing a letter to the editor! Point out our regional progress and solutions you see around you, and how with more people calling for bold, sustained action from our elected leaders at every level, we can still make a positive difference on the climate math. Plus, seeing people write in about this topic it will demonstrate to news editors that their readers want more of this kind of coverage!
