Earthweek: Diary of a Changing World by Steve Newman
Type: Text Feature
Frequency: 1x Weekly
Available for print / Web / mobile
Our planet is changing more rapidly now than at any other point in human history, and the deepening climate crisis is one of the most pressing issues we face. Earthweek has been reporting each week on the events that shape our world for more than 30 years -- from rampant deforestation and pervasive plastic pollution to tropical cyclones, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, even monkey attacks and snake infestations. The stories in Earthweek are as diverse as nature itself.
A fascinating and informative read for casual readers who want to keep abreast of these events, Earthweek is also a superb educational resource for students. Earthweek is available as a composed page in color or black-and-white, and in U.S. and Metric versions.
Earthweek is the invention of meteorologist and science journalist Steve Newman. Steve’s career spans more than three decades in broadcast and print media.
In addition to having been a frequent contributor to ABC’s "Good Morning America" and the Discovery Channel’s Discovery News, he has written about the environment for the San Francisco Chronicle and the Los Angeles Times.
In 1980, Newman established Earth Environment Service, a weather consulting company that provided forecasts and data to agricultural, insurance and media interests worldwide.
Newman is designated a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society and is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society. He is also a member of the American Geophysical Union and the National Association of Science Writers.
The print version of Earthweek premiered in the San Francisco Chronicle on January 2, 1988, and has since expanded to be published in more than 100 newspapers worldwide.
Steve now lives with his husband in Barcelona, Spain.
