Below is a link from an online environmental news source. The lede really gets to the heart of the article, that fuel economy standards are at a record high and carbon emissions are at a new low. However, as informative as it is, I was bored! This is a big environmental news, and I want to be excited or engaged by a lede, not simply told the facts.
Your task is to rewrite the lede! Do you feel that re-doing it could add some pizazz to the article, or does leaving it as it is fufill the goals of the article?
Hope this helps “lede” you to the winning comment for the week! 🙂
