National Geographic and the Allianz Knowledge Initiative created EarthPulse to present thoroughly researched and well-presented information about the state of our planet. EarthPulse is rich with essays, galleries of photos and interactive maps, even quizes about our changing planet. It’s a massive and rich resource for you to explore with your students.
“On a planet defined by unprecedented change, perhaps our most precious resource has become knowledge. Only with access to accurate, unbiased facts can a world brimming with possibilities and perils begin to make sense.
EarthPulse draws from experts from every sector to gather information, present a wide range of perspectives, and empower the dialog on global warming, demographic change, economic injustice, and other major challenges.
As our global connections tighten, the pulse of our planet quickens. But so can our ability to understand. So starting with these pages, and a visit to the Allianz Knowledge Partnersite, you can expand your own awareness about the strains being placed on our planet. Perhaps the one thing more powerful than the challenges we face is the knowledge we share together.”
At GISetc.com we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
