American Media & The Green Movement
Modern media shapes nearly everything in our culture. The TV set, the daily newspaper, the internet and radio stations have become the central meeting point for curious minds. It is not hard to understand why the messages that the media puts out into society can have a tremendous impact on everything that society does.
Modern media can be a powerful tool for focusing people’s attention on their role in the green movement. Your voice wields more influence than you might expect.
