Morning Call fails again!

We might disagree on the significance of the following events, but I think it is strange -- astonishing, really -- that The Morning Call failed to report any of them, although they were notified in advance and, in at least one case, had a reporter on the scene.

* On July 19, the Mayors of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton signed the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, the first in this region to do so. (Over 330 cities throughout the U.S have signed; the only other cities in PA to sign are Philadelphia and Erie.)

* On October 15, the County Executives of Lehigh and Northampton Counties signed a similar Climate Protection Agreement for counties -- the first counties to do so -- making this the only region where cities and counties have united in their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to protect us from global warming.

* This Monday, December 11, the Bethlehem Area School District adopted a Climate Protection Agreement that pledges the district to a variety of efforts to reduce GHG emissions.

Why would a responsible newspaper fail to report when local officials take important positive steps? (Do they only want to report problems?)

Does The Morning Call expect us to report the news via letters to the editor?

Is it any surprise that newspaper circulation declines in proportion to their coverage of local news?

Thanks for highlighting the Climate Protection Agreements. I am currently investigating this and intend on posting a comprehensive article on the topic on the Network of Young Professional's Blog.

Watch for it in January.

Bernie O'Hare over at Lehigh Valley Ramblings also has spoken on the topic.

Keep up the good work!
