An archive of all the Rochester-area Environmental NewsLinks since 1998.
Click on the correct month and year for a full past month's environmental NewsLinks. Note: Beginning with June 2006, news stories begin at the top of the page and the later dates scroll down. Before June, the news stories beginning with the older date and scroll to the newest date.
* Most of the links inside the pages below will probably no longer work. This is because most news services do not keep their articles posted for long or they put them in online archives requiring you to pay—as is appropriate because it costs these organizations money. But, listing these articles is still valuable for many reasons: 1. You now know they exist, meaning an issues has been reported, and that a professional has researched it. 2. You have a starting point to locate the article given the source and the date of publication.
I believe that a service like this (providing a local online news archive) provides people one of the best ways to understand our local environment because it provides a history of environmental stories so that one can connect the dots later on. All too often environmental problems take a long time to get our attention, but if we have a chance to go back and see when they first showed up and how they were treated in the media, we can better understand how to solve and catalogue environmental problems in the future.
