Introducing the Climate Desk

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Starting today, Mother Jones and a notable group of news outlets are launching the Climate Desk, an unprecedented effort to cooperate on coverage of climate change. We’re working with the Center for Investigative Reporting, Grist, The Nation Institute, Slate, The Atlantic, Wired, and WNET on this project, which we describe as “a journalistic collaboration dedicated to exploring the impact—human, environmental, economic, political—of a changing climate.”As global warming is the biggest challenge of our time, we thought it only appropriate that we pool our resources to explain and explore how the world is adjusting to this new reality.

Reuters.com blogger Felix Salmon has an excellent post kicking off our collaboration. He’ll be looking at how—or whether—corporations are moving to address the risks they face from climate change. I’ll be covering the politics and policy from Washington, DC, and Kevin Drum will also be weighing in on his blog. We’d love story ideas and tips, so please send them to scoop@motherjones.com or drop us a note in the comments below. And stay tuned for more on our new project!

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
