About our journalism

Columbia Insight often stands as the sole source of unbiased, well reported news on environmental issues in Pacific Northwest.

Our stories are republished by dozens of news platforms and websites large and small across the region. CI’s journalists include award-winning journalists with national and international pedigree, as well as emerging journalists and voices from communities traditionally under-represented in news media.

Our remit is to cover any environmental story of relevance to the Pacific Northwest, but CI pays particular attention to: climate change, natural resources, wildlife, energy, agriculture and Indigenous tribal issues.
