Sustain What? Persistent Pandemic, Heating Planet, Collapsing Newsrooms – How Does That Work Out?

This week we explore the overwhelming challenge in covering simultaneous calamities – the pandemic and climate crisis -- with bestselling author and New York Magazine editor David Wallace-Wells. We look at stark troubles and opportunities in countless local newsrooms with Kristen Hare at the Poynter Institute and Bill Loveless of the Energy Journalism Initiative at Columbia's Center on Global Energy Policy describes fresh efforts to improve energy-focused journalism by building a better interface between scholars, practitioners and reporters.

In these Sustain What Friday sessions, Andy Revkin, longtime journalist and director of the sustainability communication initiative at Columbia’s Earth Institute, holds solution-focused conversations aimed at making information matter when complexity and consequence collide.
