The journalists who report on climate change have stories of their own. Tasked with remaining objective as they make a daunting, politicized topic tangible, they embed in smoldering landscapes and inundated shores. Hear front-line stories from Pulitzer Prize-winning NYT time address correspondent Sheri Fink, The Guardian environmental reporter Oliver Milman, and author of The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption Dahr Jamail. Moderated by National Geographic Society Strategic Adviser for Environmental and Science Journalism Andrew Revkin.
