About This Series
Americans are divided on what is causing Earth's climate to change. It's a sore point in our national conversation, surrounded by harsh politics and cherished values yielding no middle ground.
But away from the headlines and the necessity to choose sides, Americans are experiencing noticeable, and sometimes profound, changes in their communities. The streets of Miami are filling up with seawater. The permafrost in Alaska is thawing. The peach crop in Georgia is failing. How are Americans explaining these things? What are they doing to contend with these new circumstances that are upending their lives?
Meera Subramanian is on the road for InsideClimate News finding middle ground, to tell stories about a common problem we otherwise can't seem to talk about.
Middle Ground was a finalist for the Scripps Howard Awards honoring the best journalism of 2017, in the category "Topic of the Year—Divided America."
