This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Jayashree Arunachalam are joined by Lou Del Bello, an energy and climate change journalist.
The panel discusses the ongoing heatwave in India and how climate change is missing from mainstream media headlines or prime time debates. “Every single decision in the newsroom has to be very intentional when it comes to climate change,” Lou says. They go on to discuss how to make climate change an issue of interest for the general public in a more proactive way.
The discussion spans Prashant Kishor’s “padyatra”, the ongoing debate on the abortion laws in the US and a lot more.
