In this special year end round table, Circle of Blue reporters discuss the big stories of 2016.
In 2016, Circle of Blue’s US coverage closely followed the developments out of Flint Michigan, as the city continued to struggle with lead contamination in its drinking water. Our team also covered the ongoing controversy over the Dakota Access Pipeline. Around the world, we reported stories on water conflict, infrastructure spending, stranded assets, and severe droughts brought on by El Nino in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
