While the days of false equivalency in climate change journalism appear to be in the past, mainstream media outlets still disproportionately amplify the views of businesses and coalitions pushing back on climate action, a new study says.

A new proposal from the Trump administration that defines habitat under the Endangered Species Act would limit the areas species will have to recover, environmental groups say.
