Tonight PBS's award-winning documentary series FRONTLINE will air "Climate of Doubt," a special that features the climate-change reporting of National Journal energy correspondent Coral Davenport.
"Climate of Doubt" focuses on how climate change skeptics mobilized to undermine public acceptance of a scientific consensus about global warming. Davenport has written frequently and in-depth about the topic - including the December 2011 National Journal cover story "Heads in the Sand" - and the documentary includes her reporting as well as an interview with her.
A press release from PBS further describes "Climate of Doubt":
Climate of Doubt describes the individuals and groups behind an organized effort to attack science by undermining scientists, and to unseat politicians who say they believe there is current climate change caused by human activity."
In addition to "Heads in the Sand," other Davenport reporting on the politics of climate change includes:
- Republican Thinkers Launch New Climate-Change Initiative (July 10, 2012)
- Conservative Group Plans to Push Republicans Toward Action on Climate, Cleaner Energy (August 20, 2012)
- Climate Change Already Pinching Pocketbooks (September 20, 2012)
- Conventions Revive Climate-Change Debate (September 6, 2012)
- Obama's Climate-Change Silence (October 18, 2012)
FRONTLINE's "Climate of Doubt" will air on PBS at 10pm Eastern.
