Sure, mistakes can happen, and the accompanying report may be well written and accurate. But I take this blooper as a metaphor for what happens when you focus more on humans and technology than on the actual wildlife and habitats environmentalism is supposed to save. (That, combined with people not being willing to pay for their
news classified ads anymore.)
Meanwhile, excellent journalists like Chris Clarke are struggling for a living.
But maybe I’m wrong. Who are your favorite reporters on the environment?
