We aren't exactly best friends with big corporate advertisers.
We rely on you, our readers, to keep our truth-telling mission funded.

Dear Terry,

I began reporting on Big Coal for The Nation in 2013, when I traveled to the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana to speak with miners, ranchers, environmentalists, and Native American leaders about the industry's legacy. At the time, coal from that region was the country's largest single-source contributor to climate change—yet President Obama's Interior Department was essentially giving mining concessions away to energy companies for pennies.

A lot has changed in the Powder River Basin since then. The largest companies operating there have gone bankrupt, and the government put a pause on leasing new tracts of coal. I'm proud to be reporting on this upheaval and on other aspects of the climate crisis for The Nation alongside some of the most important voices in the movement, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, and Wen Stephenson.

But real reporting costs money. We need your help to continue supporting environmental journalism of the caliber you've come to expect from The Nation.

If just 200 readers give $50 right now, we'll be able to reach our goal of $10,000.
The Nation was one of the first media organizations to report on the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Our history of hard-hitting environmental coverage goes back to well before the birth of the modern environmentalist movement with pieces like Gene Marine's "Politics of the Environment" published in the January 26, 1970 issue, and it's critically important to us that we continue providing our readers with honest, uncompromising environmental journalism. We can't do that without you.

We aren't exactly best friends with big corporate advertisers; this year, for instance, we ran articles and petitions calling for pharmaceutical giant Pfizer to pay its taxes and for Exxon-Mobil to be held accountable for its lies about climate change. Instead, we rely on you, our readers, to keep our truth-telling mission funded.

Please donate today and be one of the readers that helps us meet our $10,000 goal.
