Key Climate Change Media Outlets

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:

Reporting on Climate and the US 2024 Elections

Climate is on the ballot this election year. Scientists agree that Earth is close to reaching a number of tipping points as a result of human-caused global heating, and the actions taken — or not taken — over the next few years will play a critical role in determining the future for life on Earth.

This Week: Heat Pumps

Residential energy use is responsible for roughly 21% of all energy consumption and 20% of total greenhouse gas emissions in the US. Enter: heat pumps. For two years running, heat pumps have outsold gas furnaces in the US, and it’s not hard to see why. They’re the cheapest, cleanest, and most energy-efficient appliance to cut energy usage at home.

350.org

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

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.

Climate Cast (newsletter from Natural Climate Solutions)

ClimateCast is Climate Solutions' curated, weekly collection of news and commentary on climate issues.

Climate Reality Project

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.

Covering Climate Now

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.

Earthjustice

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.

Earthtalk

EarthTalk is a 501(c)3 non-profit which leverages the power of the media to “preach beyond the choir” on green living, sustainability and the need to protect the environment.

Environment New York

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.

Environmental Voter Project

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

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.
