- There's growing acceptance of the notion that global climate change is a critical issue for humankind – that the earth’s resources, once considered infinite, are being shaped, depleted and morphed by humans – some human activities may imperil or others may improve the long-term survival of the human race. Many scientists think the window of time to change human behavior to avert potential famine or weather-induced migration and chaos may be quickly passing.
- Profound changes to our global cultures, economies, food and health-care systems, local communities and lifestyles may be inevitable to mitigate, slow or reverse the effects of climate change. They are far more likely to happen -- peacefully and rationally -- if the participants in our emerging media "ecosystem" understand and communicate the opportunities, challenges and threats in a less episodic, more contextual way.
- In Denver, from April 3-7, 2013, two different gatherings will address the issue. The first will be Journalism That Matters convening at the University of Denver. The second will be at least one breakout discuss at the National Conference for Media Reform. Bookmark this page and return for details.
