Letter to Editor: Front page climate news

To the Editor:

Kudos to the Islander for incorporating the impacts of climate change into their regular coverage with last week’s front page story: “Research focus: How climate will change Acadia.”

As a former Islander reporter, and now a researcher studying global media coverage with the University of Colorado’s Media and Climate Change Observatory, I am dismayed with the lack of quality coverage of environmental change and how it impacts our everyday lives.

Reporting on climate change is something major news outlets still struggle with, so it’s inspiring that our hometown newspaper can do it seamlessly. Keep up the good work.
