Climate Journalism

Inside Climate News produces award-winning climate journalism, with a particular focus on science, politics & policy, justice, fossil fuels, and clean energy.

Population(s) Served

ICN’s environmental reporting network brings quality science and climate journalism to underserved readers in regional and local markets where journalism is slowly disappearing. We have four regional hubs so far, located in the Southeast (KY), Midwest (OH), Mountain West (UT), and West Coast (CA).

Population(s) Served

We launched an Environmental Justice Reporting Initiative to address the glaring silence on matters of environmental justice in American journalism. So far we have been able to hire a team of three reporters, constituted a stellar advisory board, and are working to build capacity around the country.
