The media will report on the various attempts to prevent a climate-caused catastrophe as seriously as it would treat attempts to prevent a meteor-caused devastation of the planet's life.
If some newspapers or networks persist in supporting climate denial, responsible newspapers and networks will criticize them, explaining why their behavior is irresponsible -- similar to supporting fascist propaganda during WW II.
Beyond correcting the defects in their previous treatments of the climate threat, the media will develop programs to educate people about climate change and inspire them to do what they can. For example, there could be:
High-quality series (such as Showtime's "Years of Living Dangerously") provided for the entire viewing public.
A talk show in which an informed host (such as Chris Hayes) talks with the world's leading climate scientists, along with politicians, economists, and others dealing with climate change, explaining, among other things, how the President's policies will get us started towards a solution.
A series, perhaps entitled "Climate Denial Expose," which explains that climate denialism has been orchestrated by the Koch brothers and the fossil-fuel companies; how they fund front groups, so the denials appear to come from ordinary citizens; and how much money they have funneled to members of Congress who support denialism.
An ongoing entertainment show featuring some comedian, such as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, or John Oliver, in which climate denial is lampooned.
Just as newspapers and TV news programs keep people informed about the stock market, they will keep people apprised of the atmosphere's CO2 concentration and the number of gigatons left in the planet's carbon budget.
