A new chapter at Hothouse 🌻
Dear Hothouse readers,
Over the last two years, this intrepid little newsletter has amassed a global audience of thousands dedicated to climate action. We’ve published Pulitzer Prize winners. We’ve appeared online in magazines from Scientific American to Popular Science. And you, dear readers, have motivated us to publish some of the best original climate solutions on the web.
I can’t thank all of you enough for your support of Hothouse. I’m writing because we’re planning some changes. When Jemima Kiss and I started thinking about Hothouse a few years ago, we wanted a publication that investigated climate solutions and gave people a way to act. At the time, there was nothing like it.
Last month, I accepted a position at The Washington Post to tackle this challenge as the next climate columnist. As “Climate Coach,” I’ll explore these questions for millions of people around the globe, and build on what we started at Hothouse. If you’re interested, you can sign up to receive it here.
It will be tough to leave Hothouse behind when there’s so much I learned and that I love about this publication. But as a new dad, with limited time and finances, this is an opportunity to pursue the original idea behind Hothouse for a global audience.
I’m incredibly proud of what Hothouse has accomplished and can still do. We’ve connected and built a big, influential audience that is eager for a new brand of solutions journalism that is growing quickly.
With that in mind, the original founders of Hothouse (Jemima Kiss and I) are passing over management of the next iteration of this publication into the capable hands of Cadence Bambenek. She’ll be announcing more details over the coming weeks. Jemima and I will stay on as readers and admirers.
I’m happy to answer any questions. I’m here at this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you ever want to reach out. I want to say thank you so much for everything you’ve done to support Hothouse over the past two years.
