Covering Climate: What Is the Media Missing?

March 24, 2021
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Media outlets are starting to put more resources into covering the worsening climate crisis. But what’s taking so long? Why aren’t there more full-time climate reporters, and why aren’t there more stories connecting “everyday issues” to climate change? What’s the toll from the decline of local journalism, and how does it affect coverage of environmental justice? Former New York Times journalist and Director, the Initiative on Communication Innovation and Impact at the Earth Institute, Columbia University, Andrew Revkin, media watchdog Genevieve Guenther, Dharna Noor of Earther and Gizmodo, and Rachel Ramirez of Vox will examine common flaws in climate reporting and how the media can do better.
