From Best-Selling Novelist, Something Rare: Plot About Climate Change

"Barbara Kingsolver's novel, 'Flight Behavior,' opens with a scenario that could have been ripped from a Harlequin Romance: Dellarobia Turnbow, a restless young housewife in rural Feathertown, Tenn., is walking into the woods to meet a man who is not her husband. Things take a turn, as they always do in fiction. But this turn is not the usual one."

SEJ President Hopey's Letter to Texas Observer Editor and Publisher, and Editor's Response

December 18, 2012

Dave Mann, Editor
Piper Stege Nelson, Publisher
The Texas Observer

Austin, Texas 78701

Mr. Mann and Ms. Nelson:

As president of the Society of Environmental Journalists, I must take strong exception to the wholly inaccurate portrayal of our October conference in the December 11, 2012, article written by Melissa del Bosque and headlined "Notorious polluters sponsor a conference for environmental journalists."

Topics on the Beat: 

"Fossil-Fuel Funded Operatives Litter the Mainstream Media"

"Have you ever found yourself reading a news article or op-ed in which an 'expert' from a distinguished-sounding 'think tank' or 'institute' seeks to distort or attack climate change science or, alternately, decries public investment in clean energy solutions, and wonder in whose interest this individual and their organization is operating?"
