Freelance Journalist and Writer at The Lens
Based in New Orleans, Michael Isaac Stein writes about climate issues, energy, and criminal justice in the Gulf of Mexico. In particular, he is interested in exploring how the changing climate exasperates existing social, political, and cultural problems. Locally, he writes for a investigative non-profit called The Lens, but his work also appears in national publications such as The Intercept, The New Republic, and CityLab.
Michael Isaac Stein will use his Transatlantic Media Fellowship to travel to Cyprus, and find out how the split island is facing the challenge of droughts and freshwater salinization which have been intensified due to climate change.
