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:
* Encyclopedia of Earth, with over 2,000 articles, is produced and reviewed by 700 scholars from 46 countries.
* EarthForum provides commentary from scholars and discussions with the general public.
* EarthNews offers news stories on environmental issues drawn from many sources.
The Earth Portal is a project of The Digital Universe and ManyOne Networks. It is a non-commercial destination on the Web for news, learning and debate about the state and future of our environment. There will never be any advertising on Digital Universe websites and it will always be free. The Earth Portal will facilitate the emergence of a new community to emerge, directly connecting educators, scientists, journalists, policy makers and you.
EarthPortal is the result of 650 of the world’s top scientists in 49 countries (so far) coming together to produce the highest quality, non-commercial, non-profit resource for information about our planet anywhere in the World. You may register there to show your support for this ambitious effort.
