At the urging of local climate activists, WXOW Channel 19 is doing a new series, Switching to Sustainability. The first focuses on what we can do to encourage pollinators.

In a rare and, apparently, gutsy move, the news readers actually mentioned climate change out loud as part of the story! 

Please thank Carly Swisher and WXOW for taking this step AND contact (message, DM, call, Tweet, etc.) other local media (WKBTFox2548, WIZM, the La Crosse Tribune, and WEAU) respectfully urging them to start covering the most important issue facing our planet, too.

If they need help, refer them to this site, Covering Climate Now, or this site from the International Center for Journalists.

Watch all the series at WXOW's web page.

And, educate yourself via this new MOOC, CLIMATE CHANGE: The Science and Global Impact, taught by Michael E. Mann through EdX. The course started July 6 but it is self-paced, so starting a little late is fine.

In this course, you will explore the science behind anthropogenic climate change with climate expert, Michael Mann. By joining this course, you are becoming part of a global movement to act on climate change. The first step toward any action is knowledge and understanding.

By the end of the course, you will come away with a solid understanding of how the climate system works, why anthropogenic climate change is occurring, and the impact it has on human and planetary systems.
