The latest edition of MIPJ (International Journal of Media and Information Policy) Climate Change, Resource Conflict, the Environment, and Human Security, includes an interview with Sean Gallagher by Kris Wetherholt, the executive editor of MIPJ. It also includes a photo feature drawing on Sean's environmental reporting in China. Sean's work on environmental issues in Asia has been supported by multiple grants from the Pulitzer Center. Gallagher and the Pulitzer Center recently produced "Meltdown," an e-book using images, storytelling and other multimedia elements to make sense of the enormous scale of China's environmental problems.

To see the photo feature and interview, you can subscribe to the MIPJ's 2014 edition (behind a paywall).
