WBUR’s environmental team reports on climate change, health, pollution, energy and ecology in New England and beyond.
Our team is dedicated to being the top source of environmental coverage in the region, bringing you stories with local relevance and national resonance that you won't hear anywhere else.
And because communities of color are often the hardest hit by the effects of pollution and climate change, we maintain a commitment to covering stories of racism and environmental justice.
These stories put people first, and they are for everyone. We want to reach audience members who already care deeply about environmental news, as well as those who think the issues don't matter to them, or feel overwhelmed by the big stakes.
We breathe life into dry subjects like state legislation, flood insurance and water chemistry. We hope our enthusiasm — for everything from sewage outfalls to battery technology — is contagious.
