“Climate change is the biggest issue of our time, it’s the biggest story of our time,” Holman told host Bob Mackin.

A focus of his work will be helping journalists put a human face on those directly affected by the changing climate and environmental disaster, while confronting a post-truth society.

“I think we also need to be thinking about information not just as a controlling force, not just as a force of certainty, but also as a source of community.
