The Boulder Stand: This independent online environmental magazine is produced and edited by graduate students in the environmental journalism master's program administered by the Center for Environmental Journalism. The Stand's mission is to publish and promote the work of journalists, researchers and thinkers connected to the Boulder community, and serve as a platform for University of Colorado students to publish their work. Accurate reporting and informed commentary at The Boulder Stand are aimed enriching the public dialogue on critical environmental issues locally and in the larger global context.
Covering Climate Change: To help journalists cover this critical and complex story, CEJ co-director Tom Yulsman worked with the Poynter Institute's News University to create this online interactive course. It is designed to give non-expert reporters and citizen journalists a firm grounding in the science and policy underlying climate change.
Rocky Flats Bomb Factory Virtual Exhibit: The 1969 Fire: This multimedia exhibit tells the story of the most dramatic and dangerous event in the history of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant south of Boulder. Rocky Flats, located just 16 miles northwest of Denver, Colo., built plutonium bombs from 1952-1989 and has since been turned into a national wildlife refuge. Its controversial legacy resides in human memory, in the environment, and in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Plutonium bombs manufactured at Rocky Flats are used as detonators for thousands of U.S. hydrogen bombs. This exhibit tells the story of a 1969 plutonium fire that could have contaminated the Denver area with radioactivity.
