    Some may say that Journalism has "failed" the cause of promoting awareness on climate change. Others, may say, that the topic is too large and slow to cover. What is your perspective, do you agree that media should focus more attention on climate change?.

    Yes, mainstream media has failed to put general news (economy, conflicts, health, life style, crime, school issues etc) in the context of climate change, extinction, chemical pollution etc. And worst of all, has failed to educate the general public enough to take seriously their irregular alarmist coverage. Probably because excellent environmental reporters have managers that lack sufficient environmental awareness. Which may be one reason why young people are turning their backs on mainstream media.
