Should ‘Climate Change’ be ‘Climate Crisis?’

Hosted by

Bill Nye on 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.'

Led by the Columbia Journalism Review, the Nation and the Guardian, environmental journalists are accusing their own profession of being “complacent while the world burns.”  They say wildfires, floods and other disasters are too often reported without reference to what science says they mean for the future. Both “happy talk news” on local TV and major newspapers are driven by “the brutal demands of ratings and money.” Instead of “sleepwalking us toward disaster,” they need to awaken, inform, and rouse the people to action.”
