We are here to provide you with climate resources, designed to assist you with your unique challenges as broadcast journalists. Sign up to attend our events, get updates on climate change coverage or learn about the links between climate change and extreme weather, particularly in the areas of heat, drought, storms, flooding, and fires.
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 glaring lack of attention to climate justice. That is why we do what we do.
When coverage of COVID-19 was understandably taking all the media attention, we continued to send resources highlighting climate-related angles of the pandemic to journalists.
Every year Climate Nexus hosts events with broadcast journalists to discuss the state of climate change coverage. To attend our future events and/or receive resources for stories, contact us.
