CANADALAND

Blazing wildfires. Pipeline stand-offs. Unpredictable floods. Men in suits arguing...

One of our era's most urgent, high-stakes stories is also the hardest one to get right.

The Discourse's environment reporter Lauren Kaljur takes Jesse on a tour of the biggest misses and tropes of Canadian media's climate change coverage in 2018. Kaljur explains how reporters can go beyond stale narratives and crisis reporting, and argues that a solutions-based approach to telling these stories could make them easier to engage with.
