Ask a Reporter: How to Watch “Our Climate Change Challenge” Live Event


Los Angeles Times reporters Rosanna Xia and Sammy Roth will discuss “Our Climate Change Challenge” in a live chat starting at 6 p.m. on September 19.

You can watch this free event on YouTube, Facebook or the X platform, formerly known as Twitter. Register on Eventbrite for direct watch links.

City Editor Maria L. La Ganga will moderate the discussion, which is based on a Times special report exploring the state of climate change in California — and how we can do our part.

“Our Climate Change Challenge” takes an in-depth look at hot topics like California’s coastline, recycling, composting, home solar, sustainable design, electric cars, transportation in common, waste-reduction kitchens, Southern California’s air quality and how we’re increasingly drowning in plastic.

This climate event is the latest installment of Ask A Reporter, the live sit-down series in which Los Angeles Times journalists discuss the news and answer your questions about the stories we cover.

When editor Alice Short was tasked with leading this climate project, she decided to focus on an idea that affects us all: consumption. The things we buy, the choices we make, drive the economy. The result, “Our Climate Change Challenge,” is what our team found and shared and how readers can start focusing on these issues in their own lives.
