River of News
The River of News is an aggregation of news feeds about environment-related topics from a wide variety of sources. While SEJ selects the individual feeds, SEJ does not select the stories that the feeds provide. SEJ neither endorses nor bears responsibility for their content. They are provided as a service to SEJ members who many want to glean story ideas from them. SEJ urges all users to check the accuracy of assertions made in these feeds.
The feeds in the River of News span many content types — from professional news services and newspaper blogs to government agency press releases and public relations or activist group releases. Some are grouped topically. You can see a list of feed categories in the dark grey box to the right.
