The University of Colorado’s Center for Environmental Journalism (CEJ) has launched a new blog addressing environmental journalism, under the leadership of CEJ Co-Director Tom Yulsman, who oversees the school’s Graduate Certificate in Environment, Policy and Society.
A 27-year veteran of science journalism, Yulsman has covered issues ranging from health and medicine to cosmology, but for the past few years he has focused on earth and environmental sciences. The new blog is to include his own postings and also pieces from environmental journalism fellows associated with the program and student and guest bloggers.
The initial post to the CEJournal blog carried a mix of pieces dealing with issues ranging from the role of music in informing journalism, the layoff of a veteran environment/business reporter at Fortune, Americans’ cutting their miles-driven, and “the coming age of bite-sized journalism” with telephones as a key way for accessing the internet. “Will bite-sized journalism be up to the task of helping publics stay informed?” Yulsman asks in his post.
