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.
The goal of Skeptical Science is to explain what peer reviewed science has to say about global warming. When you peruse the many arguments of global warming skeptics, a pattern emerges. Skeptic arguments tend to focus on narrow pieces of the puzzle while neglecting the broader picture. For example, focus on Climategate emails neglects the full weight of scientific evidence for man-made global warming. Concentrating on a few growing glaciers ignores the world wide trend of accelerating glacier shrinkage. Claims of global cooling fail to realise the planet as a whole is still accumulating heat. This website presents the broader picture by explaining the peer reviewed scientific literature.
The Climate Web is the product of >20,000 hours of crowd-sourcing and curating knowledge from thousands of experts to support understanding of and responding to climate change. It is a collective climate change intelligence.
Our scientists and engineers develop and implement innovative, practical solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming and developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves, to fighting misinformation, advancing racial equity, and reducing the threat of nuclear war.
The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by more than one million members in the United States and close to five million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
Believe climate change communication is about educating, informing, warning, persuading, mobilizing and solving this critical problem. Social scientists studying the causes and consequences of public opinion and behavior who help governments, media, companies, and advocates communicate more effectively. Publish an online climate news service and daily national radio program, Yale Climate Connections.
The Zero Energy Project is a non-profit educational organization whose goal is to help home buyers, builders, designers, and real estate professionals take meaningful steps towards radically reducing carbon emissions and energy bills by building zero net energy homes and near zero energy homes. We envision the day when positive energy homes, which produce more energy than they consume, will power electric vehicles as well as homes, so that everyone can live well with less expense and without fear of energy price spikes, while greatly reducing our carbon emissions.
We are a publication of Environmental Health Sciences, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to driving science into public discussion and policy on environmental health issues, including climate change.
Boiling Point is a newsletter for people who care about the environment and climate across California, the American West and the globe. If you’re a hiker or a surfer, if you’re worried about losing your home in a wildfire, or if you just want new reasons to stay hopeful, this newsletter is for you.
