As part of an initiative by the Society of Environmental Journalists on covering climate solutions, this special report offers a series of tipsheets and toolboxes focused on business-based solutions, nature-based solutions, ocean-based solutions and methane/energy-based solutions. Explore the special report and related webinars below.
Business-Based Solutions Tipsheet
- Corporations may be taking steps to address climate change, but are they moving big enough and fast enough? And what are the prospects for greater regulatory oversight. We offer a tipsheet from journalist Megan Myscofski on how to cover business-based climate solutions. Plus, watch the video of a webinar on Better Business – Covering Corporate Climate Solutions.
Business-Based Solutions Resources
As corporations make major commitments to reducing climate emissions, journalists will need to be ready to investigate whether these efforts are contributing to a sustainable future, or simply greenwashing the same old dirty business. A resource toolbox on how to cover business-based climate solutions.
Nature-Based Solutions Tipsheet
- Indigenous communities that have tried to live in balance with nature have seen their practices largely ignored. But now many have turned to them for guidance. We offer a tipsheet from journalist Brian Bull on reporting on how Indigenous people use nature-based environmental solutions. Plus, watch the video of a webinar on Covering Climate Solutions — Indigenous Communities and Nature-Based Approaches.
Nature-Based Solutions Resources
As concerns over global warming, the endangerment of plant and animal species, and water rights escalate, many environmentalists are turning to Indigenous people for guidance. We take a closer look at resources for covering nature-based solutions and Indigenous people with reporter Brian Bull.
Methane Solutions Tipsheet
- Carbon dioxide may get more attention, but the second-most damaging greenhouse gas, methane, is now the focus of a global pledge to cut emissions 30% by 2030. We take a closer look at methane with energy reporter Nushin Huq, with this primer on the climate-related problems of methane and the promise of methane-based solutions. Plus, watch the video of a webinar on Covering Climate Solutions: Containing and Monitoring Methane.
Methane Solutions Resources
Levels of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have doubled in the past 150 years due to human activity, particularly from fossil fuels and extensive farming. Check out this methane resource toolbox.
Ocean Solutions Tipsheet
- As part of a Society of Environmental Journalists publishing project focused on covering climate solutions, we take a closer look at ocean-based solutions. In this special tipsheet, ocean scientist and science writer Juli Berwald offers a primer on the climate-related challenges and possibilities in the global ocean’s physics, chemistry and biology. Plus, watch the video of a webinar on Oceans of Solutions — Covering 'Blue Climate' and Ocean-Based Climate Strategies.
Ocean Solutions Resources
Oceans and climate change intersect with many other issues, a crossover likely to be emphasized in the upcoming United Nations Ocean Conference and in future ocean-based climate discussions. This list of resources reflects some of that intersection in order to help environmental journalists better cover the field of “blue climate” solutions.
