Covering climate change: What reporters get wrong and how to get it right

Journalist's Resource

By 

May 29, 2018

Before she was a journalist, Elizabeth Arnold spent several seasons fishing salmon commercially in her home state of Alaska. In 1985, she began reporting for Juneau’s NPR member station KTOO, covering local environmental and political stories. From 1991 to 2006, she served as a political correspondent out of NPR’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., where she covered campaigns, Congress and the White House

She later returned to Alaska to teach journalism at the University of Alaska and focus on environmental reporting through Arctic Profiles. Through the project, which is funded in part by the National Park Service, Arnold produces “intimate portraits of people making a difference within Beringia,” a region currently experiencing dramatic effects of climate change that includes Alaska and parts of Russia and Canada.

It’s a window into Arnold’s broader approach as a proponent of solutions journalism – reporting stories on how people are responding to problems in meaningful ways.

In the spring of 2018, she spent a semester at Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center as a Joan Shorenstein fellow, researching the media’s role in communicating climate change and its effects. In an interview with Journalist’s Resource, Arnold highlighted how reporters following their instincts might contribute to public apathy about climate change, and how they can adopt a solutions approach to improve their coverage of the subject.

Noviembre 2015 – El Real Instituto Elcano presenta este primer video con los comentarios de especialistas en relaciones internacionales y Cambio Climático y con el claro mensaje de que la cita de París 2015, debe ser el incio de un Cambio de Época en la gobernanza climática. Consideramos Cambio climático una modificación en el clima atribuida directa o indirectamente a la actividad humana, que altera la composición de la atmósfera global que se añade, además, a la variabilidad natural observada en periodos de tiempo comparables. El CC es el mayor fallo de mercado de la historio.
 
Es el Goliat de las externalidades. Sus causas responden básicamente responden a nuestros sistemas de producción y de consumo. Todas las actividades humanas producen gases de efecto invernadero. El problema que esto supone es que tenemos alteraciones en las temperaturas, amentos en el nivel del mar; variaciones en la posibilidad de padecer fenómenos climatológicos extremos como sequías prolongadas o inundaciones. Afecta a la acidificación de los océanos. Es decir, causa toda una serie de problemas que terminan alterando nuestros sistemas de producción y nuestros sistemas de consumo. (Nov 4, 2015)
