Curated News

The curated news page contains a roundup of the most compelling current and/or timeless news stories about climate change, pulled from the most significant sources— newspapers, scientific studies, magazines, books, films, available video and audio streams, universities and organizations. 

  • If you are curious about last year’s top stories: here’s a link to the most pertinent climate change stories from the New York Times in 2021
  • If you are interested in how the media understood and covered the incredible heat oppressing the Pacific Northwest in June and July, 2021, take a look at this very well analyzed and synthesized piece by Carbon Brief. 
  • If you are wondering about how climate change change was discussed as part of the television media coverage on the devastating Hurricane Ian, you might be interested in what Media Matters discovered as they explored that issue. 
  • To start with, the scientific facts: "Scientists have repeatedly warned that global warming is making storms like Ian stronger and wetter and even proved the extent to which human-caused warming has increased the damage caused by specific storms. Already, a study has suggested that Ian dumped 10% more rain than it would have otherwise due to climate change. Compounding the intensity of the storm are rising sea levels which multiply what can be the most dangerous aspect of storms on the coast: storm surge. 
  • With few exceptions, the relationship between our warming planet and the characteristics of Hurricane Ian were not part of national TV news coverage. MSNBC aired the most connections to climate among the cable networks, with 17, followed by CNN with 15. MSNBC and CNN combined aired 32 segments that mentioned climate change in relation to Hurricane Ian, or 4%. More on Fox News climate mentions below. “Media Matters explored the 57 hours of media coverage (including 1,020 segments) focused on Hurricane Ian between September 24-28 and found that only 4% of coverage connected the storm to climate change. Of the 46 times climate change was discussed, 7 of those mentions, all appearing on Fox News, were in the context of climate denial.
