Featured Web Site: Yale Environment 360
Yale Environment 360 is the creation of Yale University’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. It’s also one of the best general-interest publications on environmental issues currently published in the United States. Some of the nation’s most accomplished freelance writers join scientists, environmentalists, academics, policymakers, and business leaders in lucid, well-written explorations of everything from biodiversity to water policy. The site is divided into departments for opinion, straight reporting, analysis, and interviews, as well as by topic and geographic regions. Want to hear why Stewart Brand, founder of the ‘60s bible the Whole Earth Catalog, is now pro-nuke? It’s here. How about an opinion piece on why the nation needs a comprehensive law governing the use of plastics? Ditto. And, of course, there is thoughtful coverage of global warming. Best of all, no trees died bringing it to you. Visit Yale Environment 360 at http://e360.yale.edu/.
