A jury of accomplished writers like Rod Hicks, Reto Gregori, Amanda Zamora, and more all voted for Denyer and his coworkers to earn this award.
In the article Denyer wrote, he explained how global warming was starting to affect a large island in Japan called Hokkaido. He discusses how the melting of a blanket of sea ice has caused fish populations in Japan to dramatically fall around 70% over the last 15 years. Denyer also talked to fishermen in Japan about their fears and how they have seen ice around Hokkaido dramatically disappear over the last few winter seasons.
