KEY CLIMATE CHANGE MEDIA OUTLETS
KEY CLIMATE CHANGE MEDIA OUTLETS
Just as Mainstream Media outlets are joining forces to create stronger climate change resources, so are these specialized outlets. Take a look at Collateral, a series on climate, data and science, which is a collaboration between Inside Climate News and The Weather Channel. And, if you are interested in how the media understood and covered how the world warmed in 2021, take a look at this piece by Carbon Brief, one of our best sources of climate news from around the world.
Most miraculous are the outlets which are taking shape in the form of newsletters, blogs and podcasts. We call a few to your attention:
Climate Nexus writes both in-depth stories and disseminates, through its newsletter, some of the best media sources every few days. This particular story on the latest IPCC report in the spring of2022 is typical of how deeply intelligent its thinking is.
Founded by Bill McKibben, 350 uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, take money out of the companies that are heating up the planet, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all. 350’s network extends to 188 countries.
CDP has been putting critical environmental data at the heart of business decisions since 2002. Their latest report, based upon the growing demand for climate-related information was released in 2018. Understanding that inadequate information can lead to the mispricing of assets and a misallocation of capital, more and more financial decision makers are demanding information on the business risks and opportunities associated with climate change.
Founded by Al Gore, their mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every level of society. We’re working to accelerate the global shift from the dirty fossil fuels driving climate change to renewables so we can power our lives and economies without destroying our planet.
CCNow collaborates with journalists and newsrooms to produce more informed and urgent climate stories, to make climate a part of every beat in the newsroom — from politics and weather to business and culture — and to drive a public conversation that creates an engaged public. Mindful of the media’s responsibility to inform the public and hold power to account, we advise newsrooms, share best practices, and provide reporting resources that help journalists ground their coverage in science while producing stories that resonate with audiences.
Earth Justice fights for a vibrant, livable future by: securing national and global rules to cut carbon through work in the courts, Congress and via international negotiations to secure real, enforceable cuts in climate pollution; creating pathways for clean power through litigation that challenges reliance on fossil fuels and opens the door to clean, renewable sources of power; reducing black carbon; and building resistance to climate change by taking a proactive approach to promote ecologically rich, resilient refuges that can sustain healthy fish and wildlife populations on land and at sea.
Environment New York protects the places we love, advancing the environmental values we share, and winning real results for our environment. What’s our key to winning? People like you. Stand up for clean air, clean water and the open spaces you care about by making a donation today.
The Environmental Voter Project aims to significantly increase voter demand for progressive environmental policy by identifying inactive environmentalists and then turning them into consistent activists and voters.
Food & Water Watch mobilizes regular people to build political power to move bold & uncompromised solutions to the most pressing food, water, and climate problems of our time. We work to protect people’s health, communities, and democracy from the growing destructive power of the most powerful economic interests.
Together we speak truth to power and expose those who endanger the health of people and the planet for corporate profit. We organize to build long-term political power and campaign to change the rules of our economic and political systems that create injustice and destroy nature.
Fighting climate change by cutting carbon pollution and expanding clean energy is the best way to build a better future for our children. NRDC is tackling the climate crisis at its source: pollution from fossil fuels. We work to reduce our dependence on these dirty sources by expanding clean energy across cities, states, and nations. We win court cases that allow the federal government to limit carbon pollution from cars and power plants. We help implement practical clean energy solutions. And we fight oil and gas projects that would pump out even more pollution.
