The Best Climate Stories the Washington Post Covered

From a Washington Post story headlined “The best stories our climate journalists covered this past year”:

The Post’s Climate and Environment team’s mission is to empower readers by publishing revelatory stories about our changing planet and the choices being made — by individuals and the powerful — that are going to shape the future. Our reporters, editors, photographers and videographers travel the country and the globe to find the most compelling stories, and our graphics and data experts produce unparalleled analysis and visualizations of climate change and the impact of environmental disparities on communities near and far. This Earth Day, members of our team are sharing some of their favorite stories from over the past year.
