The Misinformation Crisis

Social media has undoubtedly revolutionized the way we communicate and share information, but it has also had a crippling effect on our actions towards climate change. People are frozen in place, unsure of what the truth is anymore and reluctant to speak out or get involved for fear of offending someone or their peer group. 

This inaction has led to a dangerous mindset that the climate crisis is "someone else's problem." However, the truth is that the water and food crisis is already upon us, toxic green algae is poisoning our lakes and streams, and our oceans are becoming plastic dumping grounds. If we, as individuals, don't start taking simple steps such as driving less, biking/walking more, and using reusable water bottles and shopping bags, we will continue to be pawns of mainstream media, big corporations, and corrupt politicians. It's time to take action and make a positive impact on our planet.

Are you tired of wasting your time watching mindless commercials on TV? Do you want to watch intelligent content that actually adds value to your life? If so, then you're not alone. Many people are cutting the cord and ditching traditional TV for good. 
Take it from me, I dumped my TV six years ago and haven't looked back since. But every now and then, I'll catch a glimpse of what's on in a public place. Recently, while sitting in a hotel lobby, I decided to watch "Good Morning America." After waiting through countless commercials, I was disappointed to find that their topic of the day was "The No Wire Bra." Really? Is that the best they can do? 
It's time to say goodbye to mindless commercials and hello to intelligent content. With the rise of streaming services and online content, there are now more options than ever for watching shows and movies that are both entertaining and educational. So why waste your time with traditional TV when you can choose what you want to watch, when you want to watch it? Join the growing number of people who are cutting the cord and taking control of their viewing experience.

This summer, Taylor Swift, Joey Chestnut, and the movie Barbie dominated the news cycle, with each setting attendance records. Even the hot dog eating championship, honoring gluttony, was deemed a sport by major media outlets such as ESPN. In stark contrast, climate change received only 50 minutes of airtime from all primary news media sources combined last year. It's clear that climate change needs to become a sexier topic to capture public attention. It's time for a shift in how we approach this pressing issue and make it more appealing to the masses.
"We are not going to solve the climate crisis
until we solve the misinformation crisis."
