Our Science librarian at Northfield, Deborah Lazar recently found this excellent resource for teachers and students.
Reporter Andrew C. Revkin's blog on Climate Change helps us to face the reality that by 2050 or so, the world population is expected to reach nine billion. Those billions will be seeking food, water and other resources on a planet where, scientists say, humans are already shaping climate and the web of life. In Dot Earth, Revkin examines efforts to balance human affairs with the planet’s limits. "Supported in part by a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, Mr. Revkin tracks relevant news from suburbia to Siberia, and conducts an interactive exploration of trends and ideas with readers and experts." Dot Earth also includes a "blogroll" to other blogs dealing with news, earth and environmental science, poverty, development & design, media & environment, sustainability, analysis & policy, freemarket advocates, industry views, and youth activism. Quite a gold mine. Thanks, Deborah.
