SEJ Award Winners

The vast amount of information – and misinformation – out there about the environment makes it difficult to get a solid understanding of the discussion. What we really need is a collection of clear, pointed, engaging pieces to serve as a primer on the biggest issues. If only we had such a thing …

Wait, what’s this? The Society of Environmental Journalists named the winners of its 7th Annual Awards for Reporting on the Environment?

Hmmm. Let’s see what we find …

How corruption and self-interest can ruin seemingly noble green initiatives

Why it’s inherently difficult to ‘go green’ and the lies we tell to convince ourselves it’s working …

How carbon offsets work (or don’t) …

Just how damaging a contributor to greenhouse gases coal is …

Why warming warnings have been ignored or hushed up by our leaders …

What exactly climate change is and the role of carbon emissions and biofuels in it …

The role of China's economic boom

How our unquenchable thirst for convenient products ends up impacting our oceans

Whether ethanol is part of the cure or the disease …

How to recapture the vigor of youth by investigating vernal pools

(OK, that last one didn’t really win any awards. In fact, it was probably only read by about five people. But, dammit, it’s hard-hitting stuff!)

So whether you’re just starting to learn about the issues or you’re an environment-news junkie itchin’ for a fix, click on any of the above and dive into some of the best information out there. Give ‘em a read, then come back to let us know what you think by commenting below.
