The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is proud to join over 220 news outlets from across the world in the Covering Climate Now (CCN) initiative by committing to heighten climate coverage in the week leading up to the UN Climate Action Summit on September 23, 2019.
The project, co-founded by Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation, is an important step in a much-needed direction. As the Bulletin has reported, many of the largest news organizations haven’t been telling the climate story with appropriate urgency and attention. And when they report on events related to climate change, they aren’t making the necessary links for viewers and readers.
By making the influential voices who write for the Bulletin available to a range of online and print media through CCN, we’re helping to put innovative thinking in front for policymakers and the public. Together, we’re breaking the climate silence.
Stay tuned for a week of extra-intensive climate coverage from September 16-23, including new Bulletin articles from MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Peter Gleick, Bulletin columnist Dana Nuccitelli, and free access to all five geoengineering articles in the September issue of the Bulletin magazine, with pieces from former IPCC report lead author Ray Pierrehumbert, and president of the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development Durwood Zaelke.
Thank you for continuing to stay engaged in the face of one of the most pressing threats of our time, and for joining us in this collaborative effort to identify and confront the ways in which man-made threats are reshaping our future.
