Talking Shop: Covering the Human Impact of Extreme Heat

As climate change makes extreme weather more frequent and more intense, we'll explore how journalists are reporting on what’s happening and why, the realities of living with heat, and solutions.

Upcoming event: August 10, 2022

Record-breaking heat has brutalized the world in recent years, providing a bitter taste of what’s to come as greenhouse gas emissions overheat the planet. India’s heatwave this spring was made 30 times more likely by climate change; the recent UK heatwave, 10 times more likely.

As climate change makes extreme weather more frequent and more intense, we will explore how journalists are reporting on what’s happening and why, the lived realities of heat on the ground, and potential solutions. This event — on Wednesday, August 10, at 12pm US Eastern Time — is open to journalists from all outlets, anywhere in the world.

PANELISTS

Mark Hertsgaard, CCNow’s Executive Director and Environment Correspondent at The Nation magazine, will moderate.
