Climate reporting lately

As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine started to dominate the news, journalists specializing in climate reporting had been preparing coverage of the latest IPCC report, released Feb. 28. Their challenge: highlight the climate report amid critical war coverage, and connect audiences with takeaways that don’t just pile on the gloom that so often characterizes our news feeds.

Covering Climate Now, a collaboration of over 450 media organizations, created a roundup of how journalists approached this unique context. Here are a few examples, and we encourage you to explore the full thread.
