The need for a good environmental news source

With shrinking budgets at newspapers and other news sources, a great deal of news about the environment just isn’t getting published. I hope to remedy that with The Green Dispatch.

Gleaning scientific papers and press releases from around the world, The Green Dispatch publishes news significant for ecology and sustainability. It is my belief that much of, perhaps most of, the things to pay attention to when it comes to the environment and ecology happen at the margins, the conservation efforts of rare buckwheats in New Mexico, saving songbirds in Great Britain, restoring rivers and streams in Appalachia.

Published twice a week, the green Dispatch is at the cutting edge of environmental news. What you may read two or three weeks from now at Yale360, Grist, or The Guardian’s environmental page is often covered at the Green Dispatch this week.

Why subscribe? Besides supporting this newsletter and staying informed about important environmental news, a portion of the profits from The Green Dispatch goes to the conservation organizations that I cover.

A bit about me

I have been a freelance writer since 2003, writing about current events, the arts, music, and the environment. In 2010 I completed my master’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy at Johns Hopkins University. I have worked and volunteered for a number of conservation projects in southern California, where I live, conducting rare plant surveys, researching methods to remove invasive species, and promoting the local ecology.
