WV3C Media Coverage and Publications

WV3C’s educational programs have generated extensive media attention and reporting, some of which is collected here (some links may not work).  This “earned media” coverage is an effective tool for communicating with the general public and community and opinion leaders about the climate crisis.  WV3C has also created many publications that are used in communities and classrooms across West Virginia; two of these are linked to here.
