InsideClimate News is a "non-profit, non-partisan news organization that covers clean energy, carbon energy, nuclear energy and environmental science."[2] It is based in Brooklyn, New York.


Three InsideClimate News reporters won the annual Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, citing "their rigorous reports on flawed regulation of the nation's oil pipelines, focusing on potential ecological dangers posed by diluted bitumen (or 'dilbit'), a controversial form of oil."[3] Among other things, they covered the aftermath of the Enbridge oil spill (2010–2012).[4] The reporters named in the citation were Lisa Song, Elizabeth McGowan, and David Hasemeyer.[4]

In April 2016, InsideClimate News was named a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in the category of "Public Service," that is, "a distinguished example of meritorious public service by a newspaper or news site" for the 2015 Exxon: The Road Not Taken series, "a probe into a major oil company's decades-long misinformation campaign to muddy the debate over climate change."[5][6] InsideClimate News was awarded a 2015 Sigma Delta Chi Award for excellence in journalism by the Society of Professional Journalists for the informational graphics in the Exxon: The Road Not Taken series, which "provide a visual timeline of Exxon's views and efforts on climate change since the 1970s, and evidence of its uncertainty campaigns in the 1990s and 2000s."[7][8] The White House Correspondents Association awarded InsideClimate News a share in the 2016 Edgar A. Poe Award, which annually honors "excellence in news coverage of subjects and events of significant national or regional importance, written with fairness and objectivity," for the Exxon: The Road Not Taken series.[9][10]
