Earth Encyclopedia

The Earth Portal ( and its centerpiece, the Encyclopedia of Earth ( were just launched at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
The EoE 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 will reach a large global audience.

At launch, the EoE has 3,000+ articles from more than 700 authors and content partners that span 50 nations. Initial content partners include the American Institute of Physics, the University of California Museum of Paleontology, the National Humanities Center, the International Arctic Science Committee, the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, and the United Nations Environment Programme, to name just a few.
