    Post dispatch reporting the effects of air pollution within the St. Louis area. It also dives into the segregated issue we mentioned in class stating that those people effected from the segregation are for more likely to get illnesses from the pollution.

    https://source.wustl.edu/2019/09/environmental-racism-in-st-louis/

    News story of a tool invented to show how polluted St. Louis is. Basically it is an online tool that maps out how much pollution is in the area and how it divides up which is perfect because we can make connections with this tool or article to the bigger picture of environmental racism or segregation happening in our city.

    This is a database that monitors companies compliance with government emissions and climate control policies. It can be a great place to find stories of how companies work with the government to adhere to climate control, or to report on companies who have yet to acclimate to climate regulation.

    https://www.sej.org
    The society of environmental journalists is a hub for information and stories regarding the global climate. It can be a great place to check up on where the conversation around climate is and is going in real time and find inspiration for stories that impact the larger picture in our local area.
