Where to start looking for blogs on sustainability

The Top 50 Eco Blogs from Times Online is a fantastic resource for SustainEd cluster teachers and students.
FROM DARYL HANNAH AND AL GORE TO THE SCIENCE AND ECONOMICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE, THE VERY BEST OF THE WEB

The TimesOnline researchers Adam Taylor and Lucia Adams have helpfully classified the blogs into

1. The must-reads

2. The news blogs

3. Policy, economics and energy

4. The scientists

5. The macro activists

6. The micro activists

7. Ways to live greener

8. The sceptics

9. Eco inventions

10. Celebrity-earth love-ins

11. The politicos

12. The environment in art, pictures and essays

Full list of links posted on the Resources page on the SustainEd wiki

When you have selected your "must reads" ask David to show you how to set up a Bloglines account (or similar) to track the RSS feeds.

Personally I use netvibes to organise my rss feeds, but the principal is the same, subscribe to what you want and let the aggregator update you. Netvibes is my home page and keeps track of my various blogs, magazines, weather, images and mail that I want to be kept informed of.
