PRESS RELEASE

National Journal Climate-Change Reporting to Be Featured in FRONTLINE Special on PBS

Energy Correspondent Coral Davenport's Reporting on the Politics of Climate Change Highlighted in 'Climate of Doubt'

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.

press release from PBS further describes "Climate of Doubt":

 

 
"Four years ago, the presidential candidates agreed that climate change was a critical issue demanding urgent attention. But that national call to action has disappeared and in the past four years public opinion on the climate issue has cooled. This election cycle, the presidential candidates barely discuss climate change. And new studies find that only about half of Americans believe global warming is caused by human activity. What’s behind this dramatic reversal? In Climate of Doubt, FRONTLINE correspondent John Hockenberry of PRI’s The Takeaway explores the inner workings of the movement that changed the debate on climate change.
...
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:

FRONTLINE's "Climate of Doubt" will air on PBS at 10pm Eastern.
