About Earth News
The Earth News is one component of the Earth Portal, a comprehensive resource for timely, objective, science-based information about the environment, with other components including the Encyclopedia of Earth, and the Earth Forum.
Earth News Content
EarthNews spans all topics on the environments of Earth and their interactions with society. It provides three types of news from different sources. First, an RSS feed from environmental news services selected by the EarthNews editorial staff. Second, stories identified or submitted by authors and topic editors for the Encyclopedia of Earth. Third, stories chosen by the Author of the Week from the ‘Environment in Focus’ topic that week. EarthNews editorial staff inserts links into some news stories to connect them with material in the Encyclopedia of Earth.
All material in the Earth News is approved the Stewardship Committee of the Environmental Information Coalition (EIC), the governing body for the Encyclopedia of Earth. The EIC consists of a group of scientists and educators, within the Environmental field, who set editorial and governance policy for the Earth Portal and specifically Encyclopedia of Earth.
