Justin Worland: Raising diverse voices on the climate crisis beat

CJR · Justin Worland: Raising diverse voices on the climate crisis beat

 

Should climate crisis coverage focus on the danger at hand, or on optimism and solutions at work? On what individuals can do, or industrial changes? As newsrooms struggle to reach a consensus, the Covering Climate Now Journalism Awards provide a model for impactful work.

Justin Worland, senior correspondent at Time, was just named CCN’s 2022 Journalist of the Year. On this week’s Kicker, Worland sits down with Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR, to discuss his climate crisis coverage and the Uproot Project, his initiative to support environmental journalists of color.
