SUSTAIN WHAT: Beyond Headlines and Hashtags - LIVE Friday Review of Pandemic News

May 15, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Another week has passed in the first pandemic of the 21st century, with thousands of new stories posted and printed, yet questions still often outnumbering answers. Each Friday, the Earth Institute Initiative on Communication and Sustainability hosts a lunchtime review of COVID-19 headlines and next steps with experts and leading journalists. This week, Ivan Oransky, the co-founder of Retraction Watch, a website tracking scientific false starts and corrections, joins host Andy Revkin in a review of this week’s, and next week’s, headlines with Pulitzer winner Laurie Garrett, NBC’s Robert Bazell, Jon Cohen of Science Magazine and Wendy Wertheimer, formerly of WHO & NIH. Other guests may pop in.
