The Workshop's Russ Choma is in Phoenix this week for the Reynolds Business Center's "Covering the Green Economy" seminar.

Reynolds Business Center

Choma is on the program for 21 business and environmental journalists from around the country and Canada attending the seminar at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The three-day reporting institute, funded by a grant from the McCormick Foundation, is designed to teach attendees "to recognize 'greenwashing,' track federal stimulus dollars designed to create green jobs, and answer consumers' most frequently asked questions about leading environmentally sustainable lives."

"Greenwashing" describes the practice of businesses falsely claiming to be environmentally friendly.

Reynolds center staff will be live-blogging and tweeting on the event, as well as live streaming the keynote address by Jeff Goodell, contributing editor at Rolling Stone and a frequent contributor to New York Times Magazine.
