Covering Climate Change: Views from the New York TimesVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Seasoned climate journalists Somini Sengupta, Raymond Zhong, and Jesse Pesta discuss how they have come to look at the climate challenge, parsing through questions of how well the media is getting through to the public, where lapses in coverage lie, and how we might awaken people to the challenges posed by climate change.
