Thumbs down: Our own worst enemy

The Toledo Blade's decision to dismantle its environmental reporting desk is the latest iteration of a trend in which the news industry appears to be chewing out its own heart. Tom Henry, the man who for years handled the Blade's beat with award-winning results, is a journalistic hero to more than one member of the NUVO editorial staff. His contributions were an asset to the Midwest, a region with no more than a handful of full-time environmental reporters. Environmental stories may not sell as well as the latest Tweet from plasticized heiresses, but as we struggle to grasp the ramifications of our energy consumption and the realities of climate change, a brighter future demands a grand-scale re-ordering of our common priorities. Speaking of, the February issue of our sister publication, Indiana Living Green, is on newsstands now.
