Earth Portal … adding to the Blogroll …

For me, Ecotality has a valuable, diverse, and expanding blogroll.  Perhaps, however, this blogroll simply overwhelms and changes/additions to it are opaque rather than illuminating. Thus, a few words about an addtion today to the blogroll:  EarthPortal.

Let’s let them speak for themselves:

About the EarthPortal

The Earth Portal is a comprehensive resource for timely, objective, science-based information about the environment. It is a means for the global scientific community to come together to produce the first free, expert-driven, massively scaleable information resource on the environment, and to engage civil society in a public dialogue on the role of environmental issues in human affairs. It contains no commercial advertising and reaches a large global audience.

The Earth Portal has three components:

  1. The Encyclopedia of Earth, with over 2,000 articles, is produced and reviewed by 700 scholars from 46 countries.
  2. The EarthForum provides commentary from scholars and discussions with the general public.
  3. The EarthNews offers news stories on environmental issues drawn from many sources.

I’m finding interesting and informative material there … a resource worth having in the back pocket, on that blogroll … for example, much of my personal focus is in the intersecting dynamics of energy and environmental developments/consequences (or, shorthand, Peak Oil and Global Warming — mitigatin both without worsening either).  Energy transitions past and future is a very good background, summary discussion of just this domain …  Both it and the overall site — recommended.
