Yereth Rosen is a longtime Alaska journalist who specializes in environmental, science, energy and climate-change reporting. She came to Alaska in 1987 and has covered all sorts of news and beats, but wound up focusing on climate change as it emerged as a major story for Alaska and the Arctic. She is an independent reporter writing mostly for the news site Arctic Today and for Reuters. She has been the Alaska-based Reuters reporter since the 1990s, with some breaks for other positions. Previously, she was the Arctic reporter and editor at the Alaska Dispatch/Anchorage Daily News and the Alaska special correspondent for the Bureau of National Affairs, now called Bloomberg BNA. She was a 2018 Alicia Patterson Foundation fellow, completing a reporting project on climate change and oil in Alaska. She was a 2020 Western Journalism and Media fellow with Stanford’s Bill Lane Center for the American West, completing a reporting project on climate change in the Bering Sea. Her IWMF-funded project was a series of stories about the increase in zoonotic health risks being driven by climate change in Alaska. She lives in Anchorage with her two children. The family enjoys skiing, running, hiking and other outdoor activities.
