This year, COP 27 will be held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from 6 – 18 November 2022, in uneasy natural condition with high risk indication of economic crisis. However, it is at our believe, political leaders involved will take this opportunity to resolve all transformation towards its sustainability collectively and creatively, as well as to reaffirm its commitment to global climate agenda.
It is at high positive hope, all parties and stakeholders to arrive in Sharm El-Sheikh with a stronger will and higher ambition on mitigation, adaptation, and climate finance, demonstrating actual success stories on implementing commitments and fulfilling pledges.

TIME Joins CCNow at a Pivotal Moment in the Climate Story
We’re excited to share the news that TIME is joining Covering Climate Now — during the same week that CCNow’s ‘Burning Questions‘ premiered on public television’s WORLD channel across the United States.
“TIME focuses on the stories that matter and climate is the existential issue of our time. Through our editorial coverage of climate change, sustainability, and climate innovation, leadership, and solutions, we aim to both be a guide to the future and to take on a broader role in ensuring a sustainable one,” said TIME editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal. “We look forward to joining Covering Climate Now as we continue to expand on this mission.”
Mark Hertsgaard, CCNow’s executive director, said, “TIME has been a global leader in climate journalism since the magazine named Endangered Planet Earth its ‘Person of the Year’ in 1989. And it remains laser-focused on the story, as its new special issue on COP27 demonstrates.”
TIME’s commitment to covering climate solutions closely aligns with CCNow’s mission to encourage a complete telling of the climate story. The next stage in climate reporting is to highlight — and interrogate — potential solutions, Hertsgaard and CCNow co-founder Kyle Pope argue in a piece accompanying ‘Burning Questions.’
The TV special features exceptional journalism that humanizes “the relentless severity of the unfolding climate crisis,” they write, adding: “We saw videos of kids who lived on a farm in Iowa where year after year of erratic weather made it economically infeasible to continue and the family moved away. We heard songs from people living alongside a river in India, people who had been displaced by worsening floods and were memorializing their grief in song. … The effects of climate change can be unspeakably sad, but they can also yield unforgettable journalism.”
Now, “The narrative needs to move towards solutions,” the CCNow co-founders add. Audiences have indicated they want to hear more about climate solutions — stories of climate doom, on their own, can be depressing and lead readers to tune out. Informing audiences about the many potential solutions to climate change gives them reason to engage. As Justin Worland of TIME says in ‘Burning Questions,’ “It’s critically important for journalists to give that full picture — to say that this is a really bad problem; we also have really good solutions; we just need to make sure we implement them.”
