About E.A. (Ev) Crunden

I am a climate and environment reporter based in Washington, D.C. My beat is very wide-ranging; I closely follow government agencies like the EPA, USDA, DOE, and DOI, while also keeping tabs on national trends, fossil fuels, renewables and clean energy, international environmental issues, chemical contamination, food, agriculture, and a slew of other topics. I have reported from Texas (my home state), Florida, Puerto Rico, and Michigan, as well as all over D.C.

Education: I graduated from Smith College in 2013 with a B.A. in Government & Anthropology and a focus on international relations, and later completed an M.A. at Johns Hopkins University in nonfiction writing.

Work: I previously reported for ThinkProgress’ climate branch, ClimateProgress, after several years on the general assignment beat. Prior to joining ThinkProgress, I co-edited first the North Africa & Egypt page and then the Afghanistan & Pakistan and Eastern Europe & Central Asia pages for Muftah magazine. I also worked at the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) running programs around the world, and before that I was, inexplicably, a junior paralegal at a law firm.
