Environmental News

Environmental Health News

An independent news organization that reports, publishes and contextualizes news stories on environmental topics. Articles are put into the categories of toxification, children, water, population, oceans, food & agriculture, energy, climate, air, world, US, and opinion. You can also join their newsletter and have a selection of the top stories emailed to you every day. This is a great way of staying on top of news across a broad range of areas while also supporting an organization that is not funded by special interest groups.


An environmental news site focusing on the categories of climate & energy, justice, cities, politics, food, living, business & tech, and science. The articles are frequently snarky, sarcastic, and informal, but at the same time extremely interesting and focused on issues that sometimes fly under the radar. You can get their newsletter (as often or as infrequently as you want) and they also make great educational videos for kids and adults alike.

Civil Eats

A daily news source for critical thought about the American food system. Their articles are divided into the categories of food & policy, farming, health, and the environment, and I like that they cover both successes and failures in this area. You can sign up for their newsletter, but unfortunately, you can only view up to five articles of theirs per day before they ask you to subscribe (but this can be circumvented by going into incognito mode.)

Climate Desk

A “journalistic collaboration dedicated to exploring the impact—human, environmental, economic, political—of a changing climate.” Essentially, they consolidate articles (with permission) that were originally published by about a dozen different news outlets that pertain to the areas of climate change, science, politics, energy & tech, food & health, weather & climate. They also produce videos and a podcast. This is another good source for staying up-to-date on major current issues pertaining to the environment.

Yale Environment 360

An online magazine offering opinion, analysis, reporting, and debate on global environmental issues published by the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Yale University. It features original articles in the areas of climate, energy, biodiversity, oceans, food & agriculture, solutions, cities, and policy. Its articles tend to be data-driven, fact-based, and scientific, yet are also quite easy to understand. You can also sign up for their newsletter.
