State of the Planet

News from the Columbia Climate School

A chorus of bloggers passes the 1,000 mark on the Earth Institute’s State of the Planet

As the State of the Planet blog surpassed 1,000 entries, we decided to take a look at the numbers and compile a list of the 10 most visited pages. Some are individual postings; others are pages that highlight our coverage of conferences, expeditions or programs. Since our launch, we’ve brought you posts from expeditions in the arctic and Antarctica, about the earthquakes in Haiti and Malawi and the volcanic eruptions of Italy, and from sustainable development projects and important conferences around the world. A full list of our blog features can be viewed in our features archive.

All of these blog posts have been made possible by the scientists, students, postdoctoral fellows and staff who make up the Earth Institute and its research units. And thanks to their amazing contributions, we were named an official honoree in the 15th annual webby awards under the science category.
