Recent news from NOAA says that global warming has made 2016 the hottest year on record. In spite of what you know and a concensus of scientists know about global warming, there is still inertia among policy makers to do something about it. This is why we need more reporting on environmental issues and to especially get the voices of activists out to the general public who can put more pressure on politicians to create real reform.
Since I founded GreenActionNews, I have reported in person on protests such as a protest of a bank invested in the oil industry. I have covered a rally behind talks activists had with Kellogg's to encourage them to discontinue using palm oil - the harvest of which is devestating to the habitat of tigers. I brought you stories like Bill McKibben's visit to Kalamazoo.
Right now, I am working on an analysis of NOAA's recent global warming report. I'm contacting leading climate scientists and advocacy groups to get their take on this news. It takes time to do contact people and to get a response. You support will allow me to have more time to do this, and to recruit more writers and editors who can cover news like this and activist events all over the world.
I am dedicated to bringing you those stories and promoting them to a wider audience. And I need your help to make sure that I have the resources to make that happen. If you haven't already, please make a pledge to support GreenActionNews at $1 or more per month. My first goal is $60/mo. to cover basic operating costs of the website. I hope that if you are reading this post, yes YOU, that you will continue to support GreenActionNews in anyway that you can.
