The planet is at a precipice, yet much of the media persists in ignoring the urgency of the moment. It’s time to reverse that lethal trend. Therefore, Truthout is proud to join with more than 200 other news outlets for Covering Climate Now, a project geared toward deepening media coverage of the climate crisis. Over the next week, leading up to the UN Climate Action Summit on September 23, we will double down on climate journalism, making this staggeringly important issue an even greater focus of our reporting and analysis. Spearheaded by Columbia Journalism Reviewand The Nationin partnership with publications around the world,Covering Climate Now will reach hundreds of millions of people. At Truthout, we have an intrepid week of original coverage planned, including both investigative reporting and insightful commentary from leading thinkers. We will also be sharing some of the best climate coverage published by other outlets that are part of the collaboration. We invite you to join us for this vital media organizing effort to shine a spotlight on the central issue of our time.
