New York Times wins environmental journalism award

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Times has won the 2018 John B. Oakes Award for Distinguished Environmental Journalism.

Columbia Journalism School said Wednesday that an investigative series called "Trump Rules" was cited for a "redoubled commitment" by The Times and its reporters to hold federal agencies accountable "at an environmentally perilous time."

The reporters were Eric Lipton, Coral Davenport, Danielle Ivory, Barry Meier and Hiroko Tabuchi.

Two finalists were named.

The project by the Post and Courier, based in Charleston, South Carolina, by Tony Bartelme, documented widespread destruction caused by toxic algae blooms.

An investigation by digital news outlet Quartz, led by journalist Akshat Rathi, offered "a solutions-oriented approach" to carbon emissions.

The award was founded by family, friends and colleagues of Oakes. He was an environmental journalist and an editorial writer at The Times.
