The CT Mirror is part of a new initiative, Covering Climate Now, that aims to increase the visibility of the climate crisis via the media. It’s sponsored by the Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation, along with The Guardian. “Covering Climate Now’s debut project—eight days of dedicated climate coverage by partner news organizations—launched yesterday and will end a week from today, to coincide with the Climate Action Summit at the United Nations in New York. The initiative isn’t limited to the US: in total, more than 250 outlets from around the world signed on, throwing a combined audience of more than 1 billion people behind the project. “
