What’s our climate future and are you ready to report on it? The IPCC is scheduled to release its 6th Assessment Report — the first update since 2014 — on August 9. To help journalists prepare to report on the new projections, SEJ partnered with the UN Foundation on a series of webinars to provide journalists with background, tools and tips on covering the latest in IPCC and scientific research findings. Our July 21 webinar provided an expert overview of the IPCC process, its findings and what they might mean for U.S. policy. We also discussed strategies for effectively pitching stories on climate science and projections.
