Welcome, New Readers!

Published June 1, 2005

If this is your first issue of Environment & Climate News, you are probably one of the 8,500 mayors, city council members, village presidents, and county officials added to the complimentary mailing list for Environment & Climate News. Our total circulation now stands at approximately 22,000.

Environment & Climate News is a monthly publication providing the latest news on environmental science and public policy issues.

What makes Environment & Climate News unique is the publication’s focus on state and local governments. While delivering the latest news and information on a wide range of environmental topics, such as climate change, clean air and water, land use regulations, species preservation, and technological advancements, Environment & Climate News reports how these issues affect, or are being addressed by, state and local governments.

Indeed, one of the most significant recent developments in environmental science and public policy is the growing importance of state and local governments. With increasing frequency, pivotal environmental issues are being debated and addressed at the state and local level rather than, or in addition to, the federal level. Environment & Climate News provides you with the information you need to quickly and comprehensively understand environment issues as they relate to your constituents.

You are likely to recognize many of the environmental experts who write for Environment & Climate News or who provide insight and analysis exclusively for our publication. Our contributing editors and other experts are nationally recognized for being at the very top of their respective fields.

As managing editor of Environment & Climate News, I am fully aware that your time is valuable and in short supply. Accordingly, we deliver the latest news, science, and public policy updates in a format that is concise and to the point.

So, once again, welcome to Environment & Climate News. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for stories you would like to see covered in future issues, please feel free to let me know!
