"Climate change is not a story. It is a backdrop for all of our other stories. It is life. We are inside the climate. Everything else happens inside the climate, including our psychological state." – @NaomiAKlein #coveringclimatechange pic.twitter.com/JP8AbDr3Rv

"Climate change touches virtually every beat in the newsroom, meaning that nearly every journalist has something to contribute to its coverage. … Climate change touches nearly every aspect of American life and every facet of the American press." #CoveringClimateNow @CJR @sejorg

- Will the conference have live and archived video?
- Will conference participants use any shared, public wikis, google docs, or other collaborative notetaking tools?
- Are there any recommendations for remote participants who are keen on improving coverage of climate change?
Why is climate change so politicised? – BBC
People on the left are more likely to accept climate change than those on the right in the USA, Australia and much of Western Europe. But it’s a question that starts with little more than a thermometer, a measurement of the temperature at the earth’s surface. Why does a science question divide people along party lines? Was it the oil industry, fuelling doubt about the science? Or something deep in our psychology, that causes us to push the science aside in favour of belonging to a tribe, a feeling that who our friends are and what they believe, matters more?

After one of the hottest years on record, Sir David Attenborough looks at the science of climate change and potential solutions to this global threat. Interviews with some of the world’s leading climate scientists explore recent extreme weather conditions such as unprecedented storms and catastrophic wildfires. They also reveal what dangerous levels of climate change could mean for both human populations and the natural world in the future.
