Media (Secular AND Church) Gives Ecological Issues Backpage, Below the fold treatment

I had actually gone back to look at recent posts on the UMNS feed to check it for any possible Ecological Crisis related articles (which is, most often, on an average frequency of about one every 3 or 4 months) after reading Rebecca Leber’s (Mother Jones’ energy, climate & environment reporter) tweets about how the mainstream media communicates ecological issues. (Tweet is here: https://twitter.com/rebleber/status/953652850395090944 )

Today’s search found nothing new posted of late. This is, unfortunately, the state of things , not only in the UMC, but in “Progressive” denominations in general. They CERTAINLY don’t seem to think there is a need for dedicated reporters/writers on the topic. This MUST be one of those things that needs to change if we are to experience ANYTHING of a significant Reformation in the Church around Our Ecological Crisis.
