"America's Retreat from Climate Leadership: New Narratives Needed"
As the US formally withdraws from the Paris Climate Agreement and environmental regulations
are rolled back daily how can the facts about climate change and the urgent steps needed to
address it be kept front and center? What should science, policy makers, and the concerned
public do now? What are the effective narratives? Frank Sesno, former CNN White House
anchor and bureau chief, creator of Planet Forward, and director of George Washington
University’s School of Media and Public Affairs will be joined by Dan Reed, Director of Planet
Forward, to discuss the stories that can mobilize the public in the face of unprecedented
assaults on the environment and science. As we head into Campaign 2020, the issue of climate
change will be more urgent than ever. How can we engage and make a difference?
