Stopping Climate Action Mis-Information: How is the Media Complicit and What Can Journalists Do?

March 20 , 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Media shapes the public discourse on climate action and some of the political narrative around potential solutions. To that end, environmental advocates and policy leaders play an important role in providing journalists with accurate information on how to respond to today’s challenges. Why, then, are our media outlets full of misinformation and misleading sensationalism? In this interactive panel discussion, advocates Anjuli Ramos, of the Sierra Club, and Marcus Sibley and Nicole Miller of the New Jersey Progressive Equitable Energy Coalition (NJPEEC) will talk with one of our conference co-chairs, Meg McGuire, SEJ member Lauren Yates and the new executive director of the SEJ, Aparna Mukherjee, on what can and should be done to ensure fair, accurate and useful reporting around climate action.
