Meet two of them in this forum hosted at MIT: Propublica’s Lisa Song and The New York Times’ Kendra Pierre-Louis discuss the media’s role in illuminating environmental issues, promoting environmental justice and ethics, and the future of climate journalism. Beth Daley, Editor and General Manager for The Conversation, moderates.
