There are so many voices in the world of environmental reporting that it’s hard to know who to listen to.
With that in mind, here is a list of some of my go-to resources:
1. The Guardian’s environment section
One of the first places that I check for environmental news, the Guardian’s website is updated frequently and divided into user-friendly sections like “Energy,” “Food” and “Green living.” And, unlike the Times, it doesn’t require a subscription.
2. The New York Times’ “Green” blog
If you haven’t checked out the Times’ blogs, you need to. Some of the best reporting that the paper does is hidden in these, and the reporting for Green is both well supported and insightful. The blogs also don’t require a subscription.
If you want a website solely devoted to environmental issues, Grist is for you. Unlike the Guardian and the Times, Grist is perhaps less objective and more extremist in its reporting, but keeping that in mind it can still be a valuable resource.
4. Al Jazeera’s “Earthrise” program
Al Jazeera has some of the best video journalism series on the web, and Earthrise is no exception. If you’re looking for a more positive spin on eco-news, this is the place for you. Each episode follows several projects around the world aimed at combating climate change and improving our how we interact with the world around us.
5. Climate Desk
One of my favorite sites around, Climate Desk is a collaboration between several news organizations (including The Atlantic, The Guardian and Mother Jones) that aggregates environmental news content and posts it on one, easy to navigate page.
