A Perfect Storm Story

I usually have a tough time understanding science, but Anthony R. Wood of The Philadelphia Inquirer does a terrific job making things clear in his three-part "Gulf Stream" series that ran in December. Wood reaches back to Ben Franklin to show how changes in the Gulf Stream could disastrously harm our climate. It's a great example of explanatory journalism. Kudos as well to photographer Jonathan Wilson, artist Cynthia Greer, designer Sterling Chen and everyone else who worked on this fascinating multi-media package. And thanks to Steffen Fjaervik, whose posting on the Poynter Institute's "E-Media Tidbits" let me to this story.
