Hi, I’m Abbey. Welcome to my blog! I love the great outdoors, music, and ice hockey in all forms.
I’m currently a digital content strategist at the Center for Climate Integrity out of Washington D.C. — a non-profit working on “polluter pays” messaging. We require fossil fuel producers to bear the cost of the damage caused by their products. To do this, we educate the public on accountability for corporate misconduct and support litigation/climate cases aimed at holding fossil fuel companies and other climate polluters liable for the damages they have caused.
Simply put, Exxon knew and Exxon lied — and then funded a decades-long deception campaign around climate change while working to safeguard their investments from climate-related issues like sea-level rise and extreme heat. All while selling us their products. Other oil and gas companies knew too. And so did coal. It’s kind of like climate change is a public problem, amirite?
I was previously a web producer/social media manager at Climate Central — a non-profit climate change news and research organization. I also work on content strategy, email newsletters, editing, writing, metric tracking, production… you name it, I probably did it.
I graduated with my MA in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Journalism in May 2015. During my time at the University of Montana, I served as web editor at the Montana Kaimin (UM’s student-run newspaper) and tablet producer for the UM J-School’s student-run magazine, the Montana Journalism Review and the Native News Honors Project newspaper insert.
I also interned at Backpacker Magazine in Boulder, Colorado in 2014. Check out some of my stories.
