Covering Climate Now
Expect to hear a lot more about climate change in the news in the weeks ahead – and a lot about NIWA’s work underpinning the science that is signalling a warmer world right now and its effects in the future.
More than 240 media outlets from around the world have committed to a week of climate change coverage starting on September 16 in a project called Covering Climate Now, founded by the Colombian Journalism Review and weekly US magazine The Nation.
In New Zealand that includes Stuff, the NZ Herald, TVNZ, Newsroom and The Spinoff. Around the globe huge media organisations have signed up including Agence France-Presse, Bloomberg, CBS, The Times of India, The Guardian, Vice and national public TV broadcasters in a Sweden, Italy and the US.
