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.
