Despite the alarming number of severe weather events that are tied to climate change — and despite the constantly increasing emissions of greenhouse gases — and despite the approaching climate issues as China and other developing nations continue to rely on fossil fuels — the New York Times and Washington Post have both decided to reduce their coverage of environmental issues.

The Times has discontinued its blog, Green, that was devoted to breaking environmental news. And the Post has reassigned Juliet Eilperin from environmental news to covering the White House.
