Amy Harder is one of the top national energy and climate change reporters in the U.S., considered to be a uniquely balanced and influential journalist with respect across the spectrum. She covers these issues in a regular column at Axios, called Harder Line.
In her column and elsewhere on Axios.com, Harder reports on trends and exclusive scoops, while also distilling into understandable formats complex energy and climate issues relevant to people outside the industry. Harder interviews some of the biggest CEOs in the energy industry, and at the same time bridges the gap between what CEOs say and what everyday people care about.
Previously, she covered the same issues for The Wall Street Journal, based out of its Washington, D.C., bureau, and before that at National Journal.
She has appeared on PBS NewsHour, MSNBC, CBS and NPR, among many other media outlets. She is regularly sought out to speak and participate in events, including moderating and participating in panel discussions and giving speeches in Washington and throughout the country.
She is originally from Washington State and received a B.A. in journalism with honors from Western Washington University.
