A suggestion for failing newspapers

I was discussing the environment last night with a relative. From the polar ice caps melting, to smog and unsafe drinking water, there are numerous issues of importance that need attention.

In your daily newspaper, you have the national, the local, the business, sports, and entertainment sections typically. Somewhere in there, there's a weather page as well. It seems to me you could expand on that, and dedicate at least a small portion of the paper to an Environment section.

Looking at Wisconsin alone, and the number of issues we have ranging from sprawl, to maintaining family farms and wetlands, there would be plenty to write about.

+1 to my sympathy for Waukesha's water woes if the Freeman adds a weekly section about water conservation.

interesting idea.

but not if all the local stations start doing their "weather watch" in response, and fill 35% of the screen border with their logo and an annoucement that the global climate increased .00001 degree today.
