I am tough on Andy — precisely because he is the most thorough and high-impact climate reporter. He reports on his blog:
I’ve received quite a nice honor for my sustained examination of the science and politics of global warming, from the North Pole to the White House. It’s the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism….
The award, named for the NBC television correspondent and anchor who died in 1996, is given to journalists operating pretty much below the radar, on stories that simmer instead of explode.
Kudos, Andy. Well deserved.
