Controversy over global warming extends to a debate over how the media  
are handling the issue. Do the media “cry wolf” or do they  
accurately reflect scientific and political discussions about climate  
change? What role do the media play in making political decisions  
about climate change, both domestically and internationally.

New York Times environment writer Andrew Revkin addresses these and  
other questions in a “live” presentation at the University of  
Delaware, Wednesday, March 12, part of the 2008 edition of the  
university’s “Global Agenda” international affairs speaker  
series. Moderated by former CNN world affairs correspondent and UD  
distinguished journalist in residence Ralph Begleiter.
