News sources

September 3, 2007 at 7:53 pm Leave a comment

A staggering amount of environmental news can be found on the web. I have listed a few sources below with RSS feed links where available (if a source offers several feeds, then I haven’t listed them – you’ll have to poke around and find the ones you want). Instructions for using RSS feeds are provided in a separate post.

Sources are classified as:

  • Science news – news articles about scientific research
  • Social news – news articles about the environment
  • Science – tables of contents of environmental/green science journals

If I were to point you towards one area or another, I would say, “science (with or without news) is nice,” but the choice is yours. Above all, don’t overdo it. If every member watches one or two sources, we will have plenty to talk about. If you have a source that you would like to share, post a comment.
