Earth in Peril  Site Reviews(0)
For decades environmentalists have warned that ever-rising numbers of people and their impact on the Earth's finite resources could lead to disaster, not only for wildlife and ecosystems but also for human populations. With each passing year, as scientists gather and publish more data that graphically reveal the link between population growth and environmental degradation, those warnings are becoming harder to ignore. In this map-based feature, gauge the scope and effects, both actual and potential, of the human "footprint" on our planet.

Earth Institute at Columbia University  Site Reviews(0)
Under the very able direction of Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs, The Earth Institute at Columbia University is dedicated to addressing a number of tremendously complex issues, including the vexing question of sustainable development as well as the needs of the world*s poor. To this end, the Institute supports a number of creative projects in the biological, engineering, and health sciences, along with inculcating a spirit of cooperation across various disciplines. The homepage of the Institute is rather delightful, largely due to the fact that its general layout is quite simple and user-friendly. Visitors can start their journey by looking at their news releases, and then taking a gander at the *Reports from the Field* area which brings to light some of the recent investigations by Institute affiliates in an engaging and informative fashion. Those looking for some of their scholarly work should take a look at the *Research* section of their site where they can learn about the various initiatives that are in progress at the Institute. The site is rounded out by a detailed calendar of events.
