"There is consensus that climate journalism should be accurate, well-sourced, and reflect complexity and uncertainty as appropriate... But what about the huge range of audiences around the world? And the plethora of different platforms, types of reporting (issue-driven or event-driven), and varieties of media organization?" This article goes over five criteria that the authors suggest as a starting point for identifying quality climate journalism. These are: "1) relevance to audiences; 2) out of the environment box; 3) potential solutions; 4) multimodal reporting; and 5) from global to local."
