Biden Admin Giving $50K To Teach Climate Change To Indian Journalists

By Adam Andrzejewski for RealClearPolicy

The U.S. State Department will send up to $50,000 to nonprofits and universities in India to teach Indian journalists about climate change, according to a recent grant notice.

This program aims to increase Indian journalists’ knowledge about climate change, increase their confidence on reporting on climate change issues, and increase the quality of climate change reporting in India. The program will be considered successful if attendees can write long form articles about climate by the end of the program, the grant notice states.

These goals will be accomplished by funding nonprofits and universities in India to host workshops in the languages of Teluga and Odia for local journalists. The State Department expects around 50 journalists will attend these workshops, and expects each attendee to publish an article on climate change shortly after the workshops.

If the U.S. really wanted to improve the journalistic coverage of climate change, one might think they would start in the U.S. with global publications like The New York Times.

The U.S. doesn’t need to influence the Indian news cycle. If India needs improvement of their coverage of climate change, there are plenty of capable nonprofits and universities in India that could fund and carry out this program with domestic funding streams.

This is one of many wasteful programs the Biden Administration has pushed in the name of combatting climate change. Other examples include engaging surfers on topics of climate change and funding anti-climate change art in China.
