Energy, the Media and You: Behind the scenes with top science reporters

Public discourse on energy topics from nuclear technology to climate impacts to biofuels is often characterized by tall claims, exaggerated risks, biased coverage and impenetrable legalese. The MIT Energy Initiative and Knight Science Journalism Fellowship Program convene four journalists to tell the behind-the-scenes story on how energy stories get told -- and spun. Join an experienced and talented panel from across the media spectrum for an inside look at the forces that shape media on energy and practical insights on how scientists can improve the way that their research is conveyed to a public that is under daily information bombardment.


The Panel:


Philip J. Hilts,
Director, Knight Science Journalism Fellowship Program

Alister Doyle, Reuters environment correspondent

Hepeng Jia, Founder, Science News Magazine

Eli Kintisch, policy reporter, Science

Joyce Murdoch, former managing editor, the National Journal
