Protect Earth Newsmagazine

Protect Earth Newsmagazine provides in-depth coverage of how America is addressing the climate crises. Systemic racism has held back progress, along with the deep pockets of industries that don’t want to change the status quo. But there has been, and is, ongoing progress to abate climate change. 

Protect Earth Newsmagazine highlights what lawmakers from the local level on up to the Federal Government are doing to protect the earth. We also report on community ingenuity and innovations that will help the U.S.A. transition to being powered by 100 percent, clean renewable energy.

We hope elected officials from around the country will find our magazine a resource. What one city council is doing in Maine may become an inspiration for a lawmaker from a state on the other side of the country and visa-versa.

We are an in-print and online publication with important updates posted as they occur in our latest news section.
