Relentless pursuit of climate accountability
Climate accountability — investigating the various drivers of delay on climate action—is critical to understanding and addressing climate change. Drilled News brings together a handful of print and audio reporters who have been on this beat for years, and we make our reporting available to a broad mix of national outlets as well.
In addition to this website, we produce the Drilled and Hot Take podcasts, the Drilled News newsletter, and sponsor the Heated newsletter
We will be partnering with or syndicating to a variety of outlets, including HuffPost, Grist, New York Magazine, Earther, Popula, and more. We are also a proud member of Covering Climate Now, a global journalistic collaboration to strengthen coverage of the climate story. If you would like to syndicate our reporting, or collaborate on a reporting project, get in touch!
Funding and Transparency
Drilled News received early funding from the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development. Current founding funders include the Economic Hardship Reporting Project, Critical Frequency, and a handful of advertisers.
We are actively seeking additional funding (holler!) and plan to launch a membership program soon to enable individual support of our reporting. Many more details on our funding, and our overall approach here.
Also on the transparency front, we will show our work wherever possible, providing links to primary sources on investigative pieces, and letting readers in on the reporting process, which we see as a key step toward building media literacy. We will no doubt make mistakes, and encourage you to let us know when we do.
