Climate Change with Link TV
This Climate Change News Hunt is centered around the UN Climate Change Conference, which begins this Monday in in Copenhagen. World leaders will convene in the Denmark capital for over a week to negotiate an international treaty to replace the expiring Kyoto Protocol in 2012. During that time, they will try to set global emission standards -- as well as discuss sustainable growth, adaptation funding to developing countries, and other topics related to global warming.
How are the news media covering the many issues related to climate change? What do we know about the science of climate change? what can we learn from skeptics? What can we expect from the talks? Is a globally enforceable deal possible? How will industrialized nations and developing nations reconcile their interests? What will happen if negotiations collapse? What can we do individually to address these issues?

Who Runs Climate Change?
We recently completed a week-long News Hunt on environmental lobbying, in partnership with the Washington Post's WhoRunsGov. From November 16 through 23 we asked: Who runs climate change? Our top stories covered the environmental, energy and business lobbies, and a range of issues related to climate change legislation.
