Powering A Nation: Motion Graphic

This piece was created as part of PoweringANation.org, a News21 project. Powering a Nation was conceived, reported and produced entirely by student journalists at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The 2009 team covered stories on a wide range of climate change related topics such as mountaintop removal in West Virginia, the food industry’s dependence on fossil fuels, and wind farms in Texas. Our work has won multiple awards from the College Photographer of the Year competition, the National Press Photographers’ Association and the Society for News Design.
