Earth’s Leading Climate Change Portal Turns 10 Years Old
PRESS/SOCIAL MEDIA RELEASE
Climate Ark celebrates with something old, something new
(Seattle, WA) -- The Climate Ark Climate Change Portal at http://www.climateark.org/ turned ten years old this New Year. Tens of millions of users have and continue to enjoy the Internet's best climate search, news feeds, blogging and action alerts. Ecological Internet has been campaigning for sufficient climate policies and been a critic of global environmental policy since Al Gore actually had the power to do something about climate change.
To mark the event, Ecological Internet's President, Dr. Glen Barry, has recommenced writing biocentric, deeply thought provoking and critically acclaimed "Earth Meanders" essays at http://www.ecoearth.info/earthmeanders/. "There is a real hunger for truthful and ambitious solutions to climate change and the many other global ecological crises that threaten planetary annihilation," notes Dr. Barry.
"After much urging and a bit of a break, I am back meandering freely regarding the failure of the environmental movement and espousing a biocentric and sufficient environmental paradigm. I am going to continue speaking shrilly and forcefully regarding necessary actions to achieve global ecological sustainability. And this time it will be as a project of Ecological Internet. Expect more challenging ecological free thinking, remembering they are essays primarily meant to spur discussion."
To diversify funding at the decade mark, Climate Ark has broken with the past and begun to accept tasteful amounts of Google advertising. "This was a difficult decision, after nearly 20 years of ad free Internet activism, but it is crucial we take all measures to remain operational, as the Earth needs bright green biocentric advocacy as never before," explains Dr. Barry.
It is hoped site users will regularly click on advertisements in which they are genuinely interested, and thus financially support Ecological Internet's non-profit work. And report inappropriate ads that may be presented in their location so they can be blocked. Ecological Internet's end-of-year fund-raising drive has nearly completed, and is only a few thousand dollars short of its goal. Donations can still be made at http://www.climateark.org/shared/donate/.
Ecological Internet provides the world's largest and most used climate and environment portals at http://www.climateark.org/ and http://www.ecoearth.info/. Dr. Glen Barry is a leading global spokesperson on behalf of environmental sustainability policy. He frequently conducts interviews on the latest climate, forest and water policy developments and can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
