Welcome to the Live Earth wiki,


Live Earth is a talk show hosted by teachers and professors who do research on the environment. Our goal is to provide free peer reviewed educational materials to teachers who teach a course dealing with the environment. Some of the research disciplines we are putting presentations together on include climate, ecology, energy, environmental science, geography, geology, oceanography, populations, toxicology, and others. If you are a research and teaching at a university and would like to donate a presentation to our educational collective, please let us know. Our shows take place the second Wednesday of each month at 8 pm EST. Shows are recoreded and archived and may be used in your class, but not reproduced with out express permission of the presenter.
