A dream has finally come true. After four years of hard work, the first of what will someday be thousands of the most trustworthy, educational portals on the Web, is about to launch. It will be free of corporate/commercial bias, and FREE to the public forever!
http://earthportal.org is the result of 650 of the world’s top scientists in 49 countries (so far) coming together to produce the highest quality, non-commercial, non-profit resource for information about our planet anywhere in the World.
Please go there and enjoy the vision video announcing the official launch this Friday.
The portal will be previewed in a press conference in Washington DC at the Press Club beginning at 1 p.m. EST today featuring Jane Goodall (by video) , Robert Corell, and Ambassador Richard Benedick among others.
And after the launch tomorrow, please go back and register there to show your support for this breathtakingly ambitious effort.
Our children deserve no less. Our planet deserves no less.
Please also pass this on to everyone you know who cares about science, the environment, education, truth, knowledge…
The Earth Portal is a non-commercial destination on the Web for news, learning and debate about the state and future of our environment. There will never be any advertising on Digital Universe websites and it will always be free.
The Earth Portal will facilitate the emergence of a new community to emerge, directly connecting educators, scientists, journalists, policy makers and you.
Join us and bring your children on April 27th (tomorrow) at http://EarthPortal.org.
