Understanding the Environmental Stakes
Laws passed almost five decades ago form bedrock protections for water and air quality and wildlife and public lands in the United States. What will happen to the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act and more in the coming years? In a four-day training program for journalists, we will look at proposed budget cuts and how changes at the Environmental Protection Agency and elsewhere could affect the environment. We’ll look at
rules and regulations that could be rolled back, water use out West, the latest scientific research on the environment, and the outlook for clean energy and climate treaties. We’ll show journalists how to find and use the best data to underscore their reporting on the environment.
Training: June 18 - 21, 2017
