Green News Roundup

As part of writing this blog I follow a large number of other blogs and news sources — in fact I have over 100 of them in my RSS reader right now (thanks Google Reader!).

So, each week I’ll filter through them so you don’t have to and I’ll give you just the highlights -

(Also, if you blog on a topic that might be interesting to our readers, please leave a comment with your URL and I’ll add your site to the ones I follow – and if you’re nice I’ll add you to the blogroll on the site too!)
