Earthweek: A Diary of the Planet by Steve Newman
Type: Text Feature
Frequency: 1x Weekly
It may be a small world, but it's a planet filled with stories. From man-made occurrences to nature's own news, Earthweek provides a weekly overview of headline events affecting our planet. Covering cyclones, floods, earthquakes, oil spills and nuclear testing - even monkey attacks, snake infestations and a bounty of other natural phenomena - the stories in Earthweek are as diverse as nature itself.
A fascinating and informative read for casual readers who want to keep abreast of world events, Earthweek is also a superb educational resource for students. Earthweek is available as a composed page in color or black and white, and in U.S. and Metric versions.
EARTHWEEK is the invention of meteorologist Steve Newman, who pioneered the real-time reporting of natural and environmental events with the launch of the feature in 1987. Newman has been a broadcast meteorolo gist for more than 30 years, and a frequent guest on ABCâ€™s â€œGood Morning Americaâ€ during El NiÃ±o and La NiÃ±a outbreaks.
His EARTH ALERT bulletins were also a weekly component of â€œDiscovery Newsâ€ on the Discovery Channel, and an online feature of Discovery.com.
In 1980, Newman established the weather consulting firm Earth Environment Service, which provided forecasts and data to agricultural, insurance, industrial and media interests worldwide. His company has also produced the daily weather page for the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee and others.
Newman is designated a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society and is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society. He is also a member of the American Geophysical Union, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the National Association of Science Writers.
He lives on a ranch outside the historic North Texas town of Pilot Point.
