SXSW Eco Panel Highlights Media's Climate Change Coverage, Or Lack Thereof (VIDEO)

WATCH LIVE: Has The Media Failed Us In Climate Change Reporting?

How can the media do a better job reporting on the rapidly growing problem of climate change? Some of the country's leading climate journalists are coming together at this year's SXSW Eco festival in Austin, Texas to try and answer that question.

John Metcalfe (The Atlantic Cities), Kiera Butler (Mother Jones), Suzanne Goldenberg (The Guardian), Phil Plait (Slate) and HuffPost's Kate Sheppard will join moderator Chris Mooney to discuss the current state of climate change coverage in the media, or lack thereof, as the Obama administration ramps up discussion of the global issue and news outlets paradoxically scale back environmental coverage.

Take a look at the live feed above, and tweet us @HuffPostGreen with your thoughts on the state of climate change coverage.
