Climate Change-focused Media Organizations
Climate Scorecard Releases Report with the Top Broadcast, Print and Online Media Outlets in the Top 25 Greenhouse Gas Emitting Countries
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCH 20, 2017
MILTON, MA – Climate Scorecard compiled a comprehensive report on media outlets in the Top 25 Greenhouse Gas Emitting Countries. This critical work provides direct ways to contact media globally that have the largest reach and impact in climate change news.
Climate Scorecard is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that tracks the efforts of implementing The Paris Agreement in the top 25 greenhouse gas emitting countries. Recent developments in many of these countries call into question their ability to meet the provisions set by The Paris Agreement. Politics and economics are making the ability to implement change questionable.
The work of environmental media in countries around the world is central to creating public awareness about climate change. Environmental media also provide important information and analysis about policies and events that are shaping each country’s response to the Paris Agreement.
Climate Scorecard’s latest report highlights these outlets and provides background and context to the varying degrees of freedom allowed the press in different countries globally, including South Korea, Turkey and Russia.
“Pay attention to your country’s environmental media. Use the information to better inform your knowledge, awareness and decision-making. And ensure its continued presence through funding and publicly voicing support for these critical outlets,” said Ron Israel, Climate Scorecard Director.
