Floodlight Expands Its Sharing Of Climate Stories

Floodlight, an investigative newsroom covering climate news, has expanded its story-sharing service to allow journalists and news outlets to republish Floodlight stories. 

A new website will make most of Floodlight’s work available for republication. However, Floodlight will continue to partner one-on-one with national and local outlets. 

Floodlight has worked with partners such as the Orlando Sentinel and National Public Radio to investigate the dark money that block climate action. 

A recent investigation with NPR shed light on how Chevron, working in a news desert in Richmond, California, controls what residents read about its refinery by owning the local news website, Floodlight claims. 

“As the news industry contracts, Floodlight’s work supports and supplements partner newsrooms — bridging the gap between local and national journalism to deliver stories that engage readers and help them understand the systemic barriers to climate action,” says Emily Holden, founder and executive director of Floodlight.
