About Us

“Improve public understanding of climate change.”

The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media provides original reporting, commentary, and analysis on climate change — one of the most important and challenging issues of our time.

Edited by veteran environmental journalist and journalism educator Bud Ward, our online publication engages a dynamic global community of journalists, scientists, educators, and communicators. We strive to improve understanding of, and nurture better communication on, climate change … for the benefit of the public in arriving at sound individual and public policy actions.

We invite comments from those who educate on causes, consequences, challenges, and approaches on climate change. Share your ideas, experiences, successes, and challenges. Constructively engage with our community to foster better understanding of the climate challenges facing society.

The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media is an initiative of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, directed by Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
