EcoInternet Announces Earth's Newsdesk(Earth) — A new type of environmental news service launches this week, as “Earth's Newsdesk” will report upon ecological science, policy and advocacy from the Earth's perspective. EcoInternet will begin regularly providing biocentric media releases and feature articles for publication elsewhere. This continues a long list of firsts from EI and its predecessors, including the web's first blog and environmental search engine.
The free service will build upon EcoInternet's constant tracking of environmental science, policy and advocacy — and years of deep green analysis and action — and will report upon major threats and opportunities facing forests, climate, water and oceans. It will focus upon environmental sustainability and the needs of the biosphere, and her ability to continue maintaining a habitable Earth for all life.


“The emphasis will be upon fully and truthfully knowing the magnitude of global ecological crises, and reporting upon ambitious yet attainable ecological sustainability solutions,” explains EcoInternet's President, Dr. Glen Barry.
“There is something deeply wrong when foundation-fed environmental groups tell us logging ancient forests protects them, and governments fail miserably to promote adequate climate policies. 'Earth's Newsdesk' will be a fierce, independent voice for ecological sufficiency. No government or organization's greenwash will be safe from criticism.”
This new news service, along with the soon to launch “New Earth Rising” e-zine, will substantially increase EcoInternet's original content offerings. EI continues to recruit essayists and guest bloggers. These writings will compliment EcoInternet's unmatched environmental search, news tracking, deep ecological analysis and action alerts.
Those subscribed to EcoInternet's Climate and Forest News Today email lists, and extensive global media list, will already receive the releases. Subscribers belonging only to EcoInternet's “Earth Action Network” will need to add Earth's Newsdesk to their subscriber settings.

    Hope somebody reads it. Doesn't seem that anybody cares much about it. The candidates are either ignoring it or skipping over it lightly. don't understand it.

    Glen,
    Glad to see you're still fighting to change things…
    The solutions to changing the status quo have to be through the understanding of why we destroy the Earth's environments… and the reasons are as easy to find as finding the sun, but will be extremely resistant to change until either the bombs go off, or the planet takes care of things in no uncertain terms…..
    As you may agree, and although knowing about possible ecological catastrophes is paramount, you may admit that knowing does not in and of itself solve much in the analysis… We can save and modify some of the problems but in the long run things on the planet just keeep getting worse…and that can be reversed… with one single swoop of human resolve..
    Keep me posted…
