Environmental Science 170

Some sources of articles for News Reviews.

Browse carefully. Not all articles will be appropriate. Try browsing under forests or wildlife, or searching on specific topics.

Recommended!  Sightline.org

·        Summarizes environmental and other news from the Cascadia bioregion (roughly the Pacific Northwest and adjacent parts of Canada).  Check out the Environmental News, and still avoid Commentary and blogs. 

Environmental News Network

·        Choose articles from “Top Stories” or one of the top menu categories, but be careful to avoid press releases or commentary, which are not always clearly marked.  Look for an author’s name, or a news service (AP or Reuters). 

Environmental News Service

·        Again, choose news articles, not press releases or commentary.  Many articles cite ENS as the author, which should usually be ok.  (Some of them are not much different from press releases.  Look for information from a variety of sources in the article.)
