This shift has put the Bolsonaro government on a collision course with local activists, leaders of many other nations, and even the Secretary-General of the United Nations, who is convening a Climate Week in NYC to foster more ambitious action against climate change around the world.

Covering Climate Change - How to Turn Up

We bring together a panel of journalists and activists on the US media coverage of the most urgent question to human existence, the climate emergency.

In short, what is the role of journalism in covering this crisis and how much further should we go?

The responsibility of Indian states to produce this outcome indicates a need for dialogue between central and state governments, research institutions, the private sector, philanthropy, and civil society.
