Online Resources: Environmental News
If you are interested in photography of the environment, first become familiar with environmental issues. The internet provides a firehose of information, and the key is figuring out where to start.
Over the years I have developed a daily routine canvassing reports from a core group of online news outlets that focus on science, environment, and climate news. Many more exist.
The Daily Climate, Environmental Health News and SEJ Headlines all aggregate links to articles published across the nation and world. Grist and Mongabay highlight recent news and originate articles on a range of environmental issues.
The Conversation discusses environment from an academic view, commissioning pieces by scientists who have recently published research, or responding to recent environmental news. Articles are in clear language for lay audiences.
Of course other environmental news sources are online, like High Country News, which reports on western U.S. issues, the New York Times Climate and Environment page, which has a stellar group of environmental journalists, and the U.K.’s Guardian, which covers U.S. environmental issues better than most U.S. outlets.
But I’ve found over the years that the first sources mentioned above tend to discover most all the relevant environmental stories on the web and post links to them. And no doubt you will find sources of your own that you gravitate towards. But at a minimum these ten or so sources are a place to begin, to get a handle on the main environmental issues under discussion at the moment. And no doubt this list will change, that is the only constant on the internet.
