Last fall, a UN panel released a report saying we have 12 years left to slash greenhouse gas emissions or face a future of increasing climate disruption and disasters. Fewer than half of the 50 biggest newspapers in the United States reported on the story. However, recent coverage of the Green New Deal, the global school strike movement, and Extinction Rebellion in the UK, suggests there is growing interest in what is, ostensibly, the most important story of our time. Climate journalists will join us to talk about why climate stories are finally gaining traction, and their vision for the future of environmental journalism.
