Jon writes about green innovation, the built environment and a host of other things that catch his interest as the Pacific Northwest Correspondent for Sustainable Industries. He has previously covered the business side of the Copenhagen climate talks, the (attempted) clean-energy transformation in Wales, the mining boomtown fueled by the Canadian oil sands, and the rollicking world of home-energy inspections as a staff writer at Grist. He’s also been a reporter for a small-town newspaper in Brown County, Indiana. He grew up near Chicago and now lives in Seattle with his wife, hiking gear, a neglected vegetable garden and too many books. You can follow him on Twitter at twitter.com/jhiskes.
