Who We Are
Climate Nexus TV Watch program
Climate Nexus is a non-profit, non-partisan communications group that connects journalists with the best science and compelling voices across the climate movement in the US and globally. Since 2020, the broadcast team has been working to shape climate stories in TV news.
Get the latest climate news delivered to your inbox
If you are looking for the latest climate change news, look no further. A newsletter with over 6000 subscribers, Hot News provides an overview of the day’s top climate stories. Another helpful resources is Climate Signals, a comprehensive digital platform that maps the impacts of climate change in real time.
Closing the climate coverage gap
As climate change is becoming a top issue among Americans, major networks are slowly starting to increase coverage.
While each network approaches coverage differently, push-back within the newsroom to covering climate change is real. There is also a glaring lack of attention to climate justice. That is why we do what we do.
Our broadcast team gets the job done
Marlene Peralta and Shoko Yanagawa lead the broadcast outreach work at Climate Nexus, pitching TV stories, connecting journalists with climate experts, background information, and any other useful resources. They are both former TV journalists based in New York City with a keen eye for great visual storytelling.
What we do
Climate Nexus' broadcast team can assist journalists on stories about climate change and the clean energy transition.
And can offer practical guidance on complex climate subjects and connect you to sources such as:
- Peer reviewed scientists
- Policy experts
- Local Community Leaders
- Activists and more
Practical guidance on a complex subject
Climate change is a challenging subject to cover. We also know that broadcast journalists sometimes face pushback in their own newsroom against climate change stories.
Climate Nexus wants to help.
