About Us

“Connecting People, Issues, and Climate.”

Yale Climate Connections, previously The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media, is an independent, nonpartisan, multimedia climate news and information service that provides original reporting, commentary, and analysis on the issue of climate change, one of the greatest challenges and stories of our time.

Yale Climate Connections aims to help citizens and institutions understand how climate change is already impacting our lives and what diverse people and organizations are doing today to reduce the risks. Through articles, radio stories, videos, and webinars we “connect the dots” between climate change and energy, extreme weather, public health, food and water, jobs and the economy, national security, the creative arts, and religious and moral values, among other themes.

Edited by veteran environmental journalist and journalism educator Bud Ward, Yale Climate Connections also connects a dynamic global community of journalists, scientists, educators, communicators, and concerned citizens. We invite your comments and participation in this vital conversation — please share your own ideas, experiences, and success stories.

Yale Climate Connections is an initiative of the Yale Center for Environmental Communication (YCEC), directed by Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
