• "We in the Media Have Not Been Doing Our Job": 250+ News Outlets Pledge to Focus on Climate Crisis
    A major new project from The Nation and the Columbia Journalism Review hopes to improve global coverage of the climate crisis, with more than 250 media outlets around the world — including Democracy Now! — signing on to the effort to publish or broadcast stories on climate.

    Organizers say this is one of the most ambitious efforts ever to organize the world’s media around a single topic.

    The week of coverage, which leads up to next week’s U.N. Climate Action Summit, kicked off on Sunday.

    As part of the effort, CBS News released a new poll of over 2,000 U.S. residents that measured attitudes around climate change, which found that two-thirds of Americans believe climate change is either a crisis or a serious problem, and a majority want immediate action to address the Earth’s temperature rise.

    In San Francisco, we speak with Mark Hertsgaard, one of the co-founders of the project, called Covering Climate Now, and The Nation’s environment correspondent and investigative editor.
