Using Social Media to Fight Social Injustice | Environmental Stewardship | Scoop.it

What's the one website you visit the most? More than likely, you said Facebook or Twitter.

 

We can't escape the fact that our lives have somehow magically intertwined themselves with the online universe.

 

Media is literally shaping our culture and determining the things we find viral and important, especially in terms of justice issues. Take Kony 2012 for instance.

Amazon's doomed species set to pay deforestation's 'extinction debt'

Amazon's doomed species set to pay deforestation's 'extinction debt' | Environmental Stewardship | Scoop.it
Ending forest clearance would not save some species from the effects of decades of destruction, scientists find...

Forest clearing in Brazil has already claimed casualties, but the animals lost to date in the rainforest region are just one-fifth of those that will slowly die out as the full impact of the loss of habitat takes its toll. In parts of the eastern and southern Amazon, 30 years of concerted deforestation have shrunk viable living and breeding territories enough to condemn 38 species to regional extinction in coming years, including 10 mammal, 20 bird and eight amphibian species, scientists found.
