Elizabeth Dunbar

Elizabeth Dunbar covers the environment, energy and climate change for MPR News, where she’s been a reporter since 2009. In 2015, she co-reported a series on climate change in Minnesota that won a Kavli Science Journalism Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Most recently, she has pioneered new ways for MPR News to engage audiences on complex environmental issues, including using dialogue journalism to bring rural Minnesota farmers and Twin Cities consumers into a discussion on the future of agriculture. Previously, Dunbar reported and edited for The Associated Press in Minneapolis, Louisville, Ky., and Raleigh, N.C. She lives in St. Paul with her husband and two young children.
