July heat waves have persisted all over the world, leading to health issues, casualties, and a slew of other issues. The media is covering these events, but are they taking them seriously enough? Are they identifying the links to climate change? Ethan breaks down some analyses from Media Matters and Columbia Journalism Review and contemplates where the news may be falling short in this week’s “Tip of the Iceberg.”
The Sweaty Penguin is presented by Peril and Promise: a public media initiative from The WNET Group in New York, reporting on the issues and solutions around climate change. You can learn more at pbs.org/perilandpromise.
