I meant to mention this last week: The Society of Environmental Journalists announced the winners of its third annual awards for excellence in environmental journalism. Congrats to Seth Borenstein (who, you will recall, I heart) in print, Ilsa Setziol in radio, Ed Rodgers in television, and the many other winners. According to SEJ:
The number, quality, and diversity of entries vying for this year’s awards signaled a renewed interest in environmental journalism after a year in which the nation’s attention — as well as the news media’s — had been focused on terrorism and war.
Wishful thinking? I hope not.
