Carbon Sinking in Kenya

  • Dr David Kimiti- Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya

Climate blind Journalism from Texas to Bangla Desh

  • George Monbiot-  Author of ” OUT of the Wreckage” on misreporting Hurricane Harvey
  • Professor Karin Wahl-Jorgensen- Cardiff University on Disaster reporting as climate changes.

We continue our series on carbon sequestration through land management and visit a UNESCO Heritage wildlife conservancy in Kenya.

Hurricanes in the USA and Caribbean prompt thoughts about how we could report on it better. Meanwhile unusual floods in Nepal, Bangla Desh and India prompt very little media attention while some journalists say “Now is not the time to mention fossil fuels or climate disruptions. It’s insensitive”

George Monbiot thinks we need a new politics for an age of crisis. He says that humans are actually altruistic and co-operative and that the media can build a politics of belonging rather than the destruction of hope and appetite for solutions.

Professor Karin Wahl-Jorgensen is interested in how disasters are reported and tells us about the new crop of students she is training to face the Age of Crisis.
