Adventure and Environment
AdventureWe wish someone covered high-profile expeditions the way Alpinist.com once covered climbing projects. (The site shut down in October and was for sale at press time.) For now, your best bets are EverestNews.com, which post frequentbut not necessarily verifiedupdates during theHimalayan climbing season and ExplorersWeb.com, which also covers polar and oceanic endeavors. ExpeditionNews.com offers briefs on expeditions, research projects, and adventures around the world.
EnvironmentOur Code Green columnist prefers Grist.org for up-to-the-minute eco-news and commentary (with a sense of humor), although she geeks out daily on GreenBiz.com, a sustainable business blog edited by clean-tech wiz Joel Makower, and DotEarth.Blog.NYTimes.com, by New York Times environmental reporter Andrew Revkin, for the smartest analysis of environmental stories. For less wonky enviro (and cultural, political, and lifestyle) news about the Rocky Mountain West, we love NewWest.net. Join BetterWorldClub.com for roadside bicycle assistance and discounts of hybrid car rentalsits a green version of AAA. And,lastly, TheDailyGreen.com is packed with tips on eco-smart living, eating, and building.
