The Importance of Journalism & Writing with Regards to the Environment & Climate Change
I am currently a high school junior. By having a passion for English and journalism, especially with how it impacts society, I was compelled to give a TedTalk focused on how journalism impacts the environment. After taking a course in environmental studies, it changed the way I viewed our Earth and its future, but it especially compelled me to go out and teach others about the subject.

Journalism has the ability to create powerful social, economic, and political change. This is especially true when it comes to the environment. It is essential that local, school, and even national newspapers make changes in order to put a greater emphasis on the importance of the environment, and what we can do for it now.
