In honor of this year’s Sunshine Week, reporters and the public are invited to a March 11 evening panel discussion to learn how to obtain and improve coverage of climate data.

The National Press Club Journalism Institute and Freedom of the Press Committee have organized a panel of climate science journalists and climate policy researchers to lead this lively discussion.

The conversation will take place in the Club’s Murrow Room and go from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Registration is required; tickets are free with RSVP. There will be audience Q&A at the end.

Participants will learn:
**What quality government/academic/privately-produced data sets are available to reporters and how to access the data
**How to interrogate scientific data sets, particularly what to look for and red flags if you don’t have a data journalism background
*How to evaluate the independence of the scientists/experts they are interviewing and learn who provides their funding

Confirmed speakers include:
**Elliott Negin, senior writer at the Union of Concerned Scientists
**Chelsea Harvey, E&E News climate science reporter (moderator)
