Clean energy stories from six Great Lakes states are among those reported by an unusual collaboration of 14 journalists at Midwest news outlets.
The effort is led by Inside Climate News, a non-profit news service that runs a National Environment Reporting Network. The goal: provide Midwest readers with a local perspective on climate change.
The project is called Middle America’s Low-Hanging Carbon: The Search for Greenhouse Gas Cuts From the Grid, Agriculture and Transportation. See summary.
