City Limits’ earned three honors Wednesday from the Silurians Press Club, a prestigious and now century-old organization that represents New York-area journalists. The nonprofit newsroom was recognized for its work in environmental reporting, investigative reporting and feature photography at the Silurians’ Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards.

Climate reporter Mariana Simões received the Merit Award in environmental reporting for her investigation into how fossil fuel groups are spending millions of dollars and strategically launching lawsuits to fight gas ban policies across the nation, using similar tactics, funding and legal sources. This includes an effort to kill a ban on gas hookups in new construction in New York, which the state passed in 2023 to combat climate change and reduce the use of polluting fossil fuels in homes.
