Erin Stone

Climate Emergency Reporter (she/her)

Growing up in southern California, I remember a time when we didn’t have to constantly worry about wildfires and when rain storms were at least a yearly event that urged my twin brother and I to the muddy trails.

It may be a global problem, but solutions and efforts to adapt to the climate emergency happen largely at a local level. If I’m doing my job, you’ll understand what those efforts are, how well they’re working and who is benefiting — or not.

I’m interested in stories that show us what an equitable and ecological world could look like — and what’s preventing us from getting there. I also want to answer your questions and help give you a sense of agency as we face this global crisis together.

I previously covered things such as mental health, domestic violence, and environmental issues for newspapers in Texas and Arizona. I decided to devote my work to climate coverage after reporting on the devastating impacts of rising sea levels on communities in the remote Sundarbans islands in India.

I’m most at peace in the ocean and among tall trees.
