30 years ago Earth Day was established to remind us each year, for at least one day, how important it is that we understand, appreciate and renew our planet. Today, I am pleased to share with you a preview of a major endeavor that will be unveiled later this week. It is called the Earth Portal -- a new non-commercial destination on the Web for news, learning and debate about the state and future of our environment.
Backed by hundreds of the world's top scientists spanning 49 countries, the Earth Portal will enable a new community to emerge, directly connecting scientists, journalists, policy makers and you.
Watch the vision of the Earth Portal now at http://EarthPortal.org. You can also a download a high-quality version of the video there.
Given the trends we all are seeing more clearly every day, the future of our planet is at stake in the decisions we make in the next few years, and the Earth Portal community may make a pivotal difference in that future.
It launches in five days. Join us on April 27th at http://EarthPortal.org, and let's make every day Earth Day!
