AGU honors outstanding journalists
Date:12/11/2013

SAN FRANCISCO At a ceremony today, a major international scientific society, the American Geophysical Union (AGU), will honor four journalists for excellence in their coverage of science that pertains to the Earth and solar system. AGU is the world's largest organization of Earth and space scientists.

Two filmmakers who have created documentaries and television series about Earth and space science for more than 30 years, and have done so mostly as a teamGeoffrey Haines-Stiles and Erna Akuginowhave jointly won AGU's 2013 Robert C. Cowen Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism. For outstanding feature reporting in 2012 about the Earth and space sciences, AGU awards its 2013 Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism Features to freelance writer Tim Folger. And, receiving the 2013 David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism News is Paul Voosen, former staff writer for Greenwire and now at The Chronicle of Higher Education.

AGU's Cowen Award, given every two years, recognizes an individual journalist or group for "significant, lasting, and consistent contributions to accurate reporting or writing" on the Earth and space sciences for the general public.

Haines-Stiles and Akuginow most recently made such contributions with a three-part PBS series on climate science and sustainable energy sources, called "Earth: The Operators' Manual," which first aired in its entirety on Earth Day (April 22) last year. But, their accomplishments date back decades. When Carl Sagan was the face of science on television, Haines-Stiles served as one of three senior producers of Sagan's 1980 "Cosmos" series, and Akuginow worked in the early 1980s as an associate producer in developing another Sagan series about the nuclear arms race, intended as a sequel to "Cosmos." Between the time of those Sagan projects and the recent "Earth: The Operators' Manual" series, the duo collaborated on numerous exceptional films and
