Climate Journalism Honored at Pulitzers

Environment and climate stories made strong showings in this year’s Pulitzer Prize winners and finalists, which were announced Monday. The Washington Post won the top prize for explanatory reporting for its "2°C: Beyond the Limit" series, which used temperature data from across the globe to examine places where warming has already exceeded the 2 degrees C threshold. Other climate-related stories were also named as finalists across several different categories, including The New York Times’s work on the Trump administration’s war on science ; the Los Angeles Times’s explanatory reporting on how Californians are adapting to sea level rise ; the Wall Street Journal’s series on PG&E’s failures in the lead up to, and aftermath of, the deadly Camp Fire; a Minneapolis Star Tribune editorial on a copper mine’s water pollution; and a feature piece in the Boston Globe on how climate change is threatening Cape Cod.
