SEJ and the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital invited SEJ members to an online event Feb 1, 2013. Members were able to preview beforehand "A Fierce Green Fire," a sweeping history of the environmental movement by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mark Kitchell, inspired by a book of the same name written by SEJ co-founder Phil Shabecoff, author, former environmental correspondent for the New York Times and founding publisher of Greenwire. Then, on the day of the forum, those signed-up were able to dial in to the conference call. Listen to an audio recording of that conversation with Shabecoff and Kitchell.
A panel of veteran journalists, hosted by SEJ and the Wilson Center's Environmental Change & Security Program, offered their thoughts on what will be the biggest environment and energy stories in the U.S. and around the world on January 25, 3-5 p.m. in Washington, DC. The event was also webcast live. The archived webcast is now available here. Bloomberg BNA's Director of Environmental News John Sullivan kicked off the discussion with an overview of the key legislative, regulatory, and legal developments expected in 2013. Margie Kriz Hobson of E&E Publishing's EnergyWire moderated the panel.
The petition presses the Cambodian government for a full investigation into the murder of journalist Hang Serei Oudom, who was killed in Cambodia in September 2012. He had reportedly been covering illegal logging activities currently causing massive deforestation of the Cambodian forest.
