With “climate change” a hot-button phrase that brings backlash and even death threats, how can reporters and meteorologists do their job — ensure that the public is engaged and informed?

Meteorologist and climate scientist Chris Gloninger didn't just want to warn people about the latest record-breaking storms. He wanted to talk about the science behind the changing weather.

As scientists draw ever-clearer connections between climate change and extreme weather, Gloninger believes meteorologists should present this science to viewers. Award-winning meteorologists Lauren Casey of Climate Central and John Morales of NBC Miami agree.

Watch this conversation with The Samuel Lawrence Foundation and moderator Lance Gould of Brooklyn Story Lab as these meteorologists and climate defenders come together to describe the challenges the media faces when reporting on climate change, and envision how the media can bridge the gap between scientists and the public to drive climate literacy.
