Some other great green websites include:

· The Guardian Climate Change section - clear, practical and up-to-date.

· Grist - Check out the Climate Defenders Guide with ideas on how to talk to a climate skeptic. “Grist is the Colbert Report of climate change, the Daily Show of deforestation, the Oprah of oil dependency — except with real reporting and analytical journalism… The e-zine delivers news and news-you-can-use on pivotal topics — with punny, sometimes corny headlines.” (Time Magazine)

· No Impact Man - A blog that will make you rethink the way you live your life.
