DescriptionAfter experimenting with a variety of quick-hit approaches to environmental coverage a four-year-old online news startup focused on climate change is moving in a slower more involved reportorial direction. Originally launched in 2007 as SolveClimate News the site announced on September 6 2011 that it had hired an executive editor Susan White and changed its name to InsideClimate News “to better reflect the investigative mission it will pursue under her leadership.” The addition of White formerly a senior editor at ProPublica is yet another milestone for the outlet whose evolution has exemplified the winding road of Internet publishing.
