Climate change creates moral tension between medium and message


 “As one small example, substantial carbon dioxide (CO2) has been released in the process of getting this book into your hands CO2 was burned to manufacture and power the computer on which it was written, the machines that bound it between covers or downloaded it onto e-readers, and the machines that got the object you are holding into your hands. Contemporary media are utterly dependent upon fossil fuels and industrial systems, so taking a public stand against the violence of climate change creates moral tension between medium and message.”
