Dear ICN Reader,
Today I’m proud to announce that Inside Climate News reporters have won National Headliner Awards, honoring the best journalism in the United States in 2020.
Our series, Hot Molecules: Low Hanging Greenhouse Gases, written by Phil McKenna, Lili Pike, Katrina Northrop and Feng Hao, won second place in the category “Online investigative reporting for digital-only website and BEST IN SHOW.”
Hot Molecules examines potent climate “super-pollutants” – emissions like methane and nitrous oxide that are much more potent at warming the planet than carbon dioxide – and shines a light on their biggest sources.
The series previously earned honorable mention in the 2020 Best in Business Awards from the Association for Business Journalists, and is a finalist in the 2021 Deadline Club Awards contest. Winners will be announced soon.
