Welcome to the Earth Institute Blog

With over 800 scientists, researchers, students and staff representing the Earth Institute on every ocean and every continent, the full scope of our work is practically impossible to grasp in any single medium. But that doesn’t mean we can’t try. From expeditions through the Southern Ocean to cramped labs in Manhattan, something new is being discovered each day. We’ll try to capture stories, opinions and thoughts of how the Earth works and how we can sustainably make our lives here better. We will do it by tapping the best minds in climate, geology, oceanography, ecology, sustainable development, global health, energy, food and water, and more. We hope you will continue to check back with us on this site to learn, debate and spread the word about how you can be a part of the critical work that is shaping how we live.

I was hoping to find some stirring observations and comments here!

My primary interests are how all of mankind is connected, not just with each other but also with Mother Earth.

The HeartMath.org folks are measuring and studying the earth’s eM changes and corresponding physical/psychological world events.

Best wishes all!

By forging close ties with stakeholders in all aspects of its work, the Earth Institute is able to expand its reach and more effectively help the world achieve sustainability. While one organization cannot achieve sustainable development alone, the Earth Institute is committed to playing a major role to ensure a world of shared prosperity and environmental sustainability.
Thanks For This Great Post.

Something like this kinda makes you realize how huge the Earth is. So many people, from different parts of the world. They have the potential, an idea to make the world a better place. And with the help of other like-minded individuals, their ideas begin to evolve and improve each time. That’s truly something wonderful, isn’t it?

This is a great blog! I live in the Philippines and we have a ton of problems — politcal and economic — that people rarely pay attention to environmental concerns. I travel a lot with my daughter to expose her to what the world is really about. I’m so glad I came across this place. It truly resonates with my love for our planet and finding ways to help preserve it.

To get rid of the CO2 in the atmosphere they plan on sending it through large air filters filtering out the CO2 and leaving the air and touched and then filtering the CO2 Underground through pipes after about 50 years of doing that I guarantee you the Earth will be saturated in CO2 it would be better if we took the CO2 and blasted it into space or we could use the CO2 as fuel before space shuttles
