The Marshall Islands series from @mashable by a team including Kim Wall is incredible.

Taken together with the @nytimes / @NOLAnews coverage of disappearing land in Louisiana, this has been a triumphant weekend for ambitious environmental journalism: nytimes.com/interactive/20…
"This year, New Orleans celebrates its 300th birthday. Whether it will see 400 is no sure thing."
@MSchleifstein, @jswatz and @SaraSneath in @NOLAnews, published alongside the @nytimes series on the sinking of southern Louisiana. nola.com/expo/erry-2018…
This has been an epic weekend for environmental features. @RollingStone has a great @jeffgoodell piece on climate change driving Americans from their homes.

"People will do what they have done for thousands of years. They will migrate to better climates."

Since Trump's election, outlets across the U.S. have been investing more heavily in environmental journalism.

Jaw-dropping features published this weekend may hint at the dawn of a golden age for environmental storytelling informed by science — at a time when it's sorely needed.
"Is this a model for future collaborations? @deanbaquet said yes. 'The big institutions like The New York Times can’t just talk about the crisis of local journalism around the country — I think we should do something.'" nytimes.com/2018/02/24/ins…
Amid the welcome onslaught of amazing environmental features journalism that dropped over the weekend, don't forget @rebleber's deeply reported essay on Scott Pruitt, God and environmental deregulation — @MotherJones's March/April cover story. motherjones.com/politics/2018/…
