Earth Gauge is a free information service designed to make it easy to talk about the links between weather and environment. Originally developed for weathercasters, the information is also available to the general public, educators, parents and students.
Location: Washington, D.C.
Background: Earth Gauge is a partnership between the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Through a free, weekly e-newsletter, Earth Gauge provides environmental content – quick facts, in-depth fact sheets and visuals – to television weathercasters for use on-air, online and in community outreach.
Currently, Earth Gauge is distributed to more than 200 local television weathercasters, radio broadcasters and newspaper journalists in 117 cities. Earth Gauge is also distributed to National Weather Service Warning Coordination Meteorologists, educators, non-profit organizations and other interested subscribers across the country.
