Something Critical to Human Flourishing Is Missing From the News

From a Washington Post column by Amanda Ripley headlined “This element critical to human flourishing is missing from the news”:

At a cocktail party in a crowded Washington living room some years ago, I met a magazine editor who was working on a high-profile new book. It would transport the reader into the future, he told me, describing in vivid, terrifying prose all the catastrophes that might happen because of climate change: unbreathable air, dying oceans, hunger, drowning.

Would it offer people any hope? I asked.
