ANS Members Only
Energy and environmental news make front-page headlines every day as floods, fires, and droughts focus the world’s attention on climate change and experts call for a rapid energy transition. In this exclusive members-only webinar, leading energy and environmental reporters went beyond nuclear to discuss the changing role of energy journalism and the challenges of connecting with the public on complex issues like energy, climate change and science. Moderated by Matthew Wald, the panelists shared insights of their trade, what stories captivate their audiences' attention, and what obstacles and barriers exist around the public image and media coverage of nuclear science and technology.
