Powering a Nation: The Quest for Energy in a Changing USA

"Powering a Nation" is the University of North Carolina’s contribution to the News21 project led by eight of the 12 top journalism programs participating in the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism Education funded by the Carnegie Corp. of New York and John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in Miami, Fla. Ten Carolina journalism students selected as News21 fellows have been working since January with faculty – joined by two students from Harvard University and the University of Missouri – to produce stories about wind farms, the electrical grid, mountaintop removal, coal activists, biofuels, religious response to environmental issues and other topics.
