At the last count, more than 460 news and media partners claiming to represent 57 countries and a “reach” of two billion people had signed up to “ten tips of best practice to get the climate story right”. The “partners” include various universities, newspapers, and non-governmental organisations, but also Agence France-Presse, Bloomberg and Reuters.

What then are the ten tips that will enable journalists to “get the climate story right”?
