“We need television news to call the climate crisis exactly what it is: a climate crisis.
In 2018, only 3.5% of national television news segments that mentioned climate change referred to it as a crisis or emergency.
Words matter. When networks consistently fail to treat climate change as a crisis or emergency, they unwittingly enable complacency and inaction.
It’s long past time for the media to call the climate crisis what it is—and to cover it with the regularity, focus, and depth that an urgent, existential threat merits.”
