Brooklyn Heights-based independent nonprofit news agency InsideClimate News—which focuses on climate change and energy issues, has won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. The award-winning story is “The Dilbit Disaster: Inside the Biggest Oil Spill You’ve Never Heard Of,” about the “dangers of oil pipelines.”
InsideClimate News is based at 16 Court Street, across from Borough Hall, and is staffed with seven full-time journalists. It was founded and is published by David Sassoon, and funded by a foundation.
According to its webbie, the pub covers clean energy, carbon energy, nuclear energy and environmental science—plus the territory in between where law, policy and public opinion are shaped. Our mission is to produce clear, objective stories that give the public and decision-makers the information they need to navigate the heat and emotion of climate and energy debates.”
