Abstract

Environmental journalism was sparked in the late 1960s and early 1970s during a time of increasing interest in environmental protection and regulation. With the onset of such interests, coverage of major environmental disasters took place and the birth of a new beat of journalism was born. Environmental journalism is defined by the coverage of the environment, starting off as a beat of event based reporting, and transitioning into in-depth analysis of growing complex environmental problems. Over the past 20 years, the transition from in-depth reporting comes with increasing technology and the wide spread use of the internet. The third wave of environmental journalism takes on new technologies, providing interactive web-based story platforms to explain the most complex of issues.
