Local reporting on climate change: heartland edition

Now that the action on fighting climate change has shifted to state and local levels, much of the work on reporting about that action has fallen to local and regional newsrooms. A collaboration of 14 reporters across the Midwest, coordinated by InsideClimate News, has produced a series of local stories about curbing greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture, energy and transportation. The stories range from urban micro farming to major energy producers kicking the fossil fuel habit.
