Panel Discussion: Climate Science and the Media—Challenges and Opportunities

Please join Union of Concerned Scientists in New York City on September 21 for a panel discussion, a rally, and the release of a new analysis looking at two particularly influential news outlets that frequently mischaracterize the science of climate change—Fox News Channel and the Wall Street Journal opinion page. Learn more about the latest climate science, the role of media in covering the science, and join the call for action!
