About Emily, Environmental Journalist

I’m a journalist and entrepreneur who reports on what’s happening at the intersections of the environment, science, technology and society—from political and policy news, to the most promising cutting-edge green innovations.

Since 2018 I’ve been publishing (de)regulation nation: environmental news in the Trump era, the newsletter that updates you on attacks on science-based environment and climate policies out of the Trump administration, BUT ALSO better, good, and great news on progress in climate, energy, clear air & water, public lands protection, wildlife conservation, and more.

So far my reporting has taken me from towns in Arctic Finland and Norway, to conference rooms in New York City, cattle ranches in Wyoming, and a coal-fired power plant in Kansas. You’ll find those and many other articles from my two-decade journalism career linked to my stories page.

Check out the books page to see my book projects. They include contributing to the award-winning book Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century, as well as The Science Writers’ Handbook: Everything You Need to Know to Pitch, Publish and Prosper in the Digital Age. With my partner Patrick Di Justo, a science and technology writer-and-editor, I have co-authored two DIY technology books: Environmental Monitoring with Arduino, and Atmospheric Monitoring with Arduino.

Lately I’m a board member of the Society of Environmental Journalists, a professional organization that has worked for over two decades to strengthen the quality and reach of environmental journalism, in order to advance public understanding of environmental issues. I’ve been part of SEJ’s Freedom of Information Task Force for a decade.
