The O’Brien Fellowship in Public Service Journalism at Marquette University hosted “Coal and Wind in China’s Inner Mongolia”, a multimedia presentation as part of a journalistic series on coal emissions in China and the United States.
“We wanted to show how the US stokes the demand for materials made in China that rely on coal to be produced,” said Hal Bernton, Seattle Times reporter and 2013-2014 O’Brien fellow. “We essentially took people on our exploration of these coal sites in Mongolia through the slideshow.”
Through the fellowship, Berton, and Zhu Ye, a graduate student in the Diederich College of Communication, will contribute to a planned series of stories in The Seattle Times about the challenges of carbon emissions in China and the US and the affect these emissions have on the environment.
