Earth Platform

earthplatformWelcome to Earth Platform, the environmental website that informs you about our natural planet and the emerging threats to our world today. With subjects like deforestation, global warming, endangered species and environmental pollution.

It's organised into clear categories: Nature, AnimalsEnergy, Pollution and Organisations.

Earth Platform contains a unique Environmental Search Engine, giving direct access to a wide range of news, background information and related websites. You can type any searchword or words in the window on top of any page (e.g: plants, hunting, air pollution or climate change).

In addition, you will find links to relevant websites at the bottom of each page. Earth Platform provides newsarticles about environmental, wildlife, energy, pollution and Earth related issues. Last but not least, cast your vote in our polls and take a look at the results.

We hope you'll enjoy our Earth Platform website and search engine, and learn more about our planet's beautiful natural wildlife and environment!



The world over, lots of organisations are established to help protect nature and animals. We have listed information and weblinks to the main environmental protection organisations. We've divided these by geographic area. So you'll find the World Wildlife Fund under international, etc.

See more Earth related websites on our Resources page. 


In the category Nature you'll find information about natural landscapes, the seas, oceans and atmosphere. It shows today's  threats to our natural habitat, and the importance to deal with those threats and protect our environment now.


The Animals category is divided into three subcategories. There are pages about Land Animals, Marine Life and Birds. Within these subcategories you'll find information about individual species, such as the panda, tiger or turtle.


Renewable and Non-renewable energy are the subcategories of Energy. Here you'll find definitions and examples of the world's different sources of energy.


Pollution is a threat to man, nature and animals alike. There are many sources of pollution, and most of these endanger lifeforms by bringing hazardous chemical substances in direct contact with nature.

NASA finds answer to why Mars' atmosphere doesn't have more carbon - Mars is blanketed by a thin, mostly carbon dioxide atmosphere -- one that is far too thin to keep water from freezing or quickly evaporating. However, geological evidence has led scientists to conclude that ancient Mars was once a warmer, wetter place than it is today. To produce a more temperate climate, several researchers have suggested that the planet was once shrouded in a much thicker carbon dioxide atmosphere. For decades that left the question, "Where did all the carbon go?" The solar wind stripped away much of Mars' ancient atmosphere and is still removing tons of it every day. But scientists have been puzzled by why they haven't found more carbon -- in the form of carbonate -- captured into Martian rocks. They have also sought to explain the ratio of heavier and lighter carbons in the modern Martian atmosphere.
US Forest Service proposes coal mining expansion in Colorado - National and local conservation groups today condemned a decision by the U.S. Forest Service to continue pressing to open national forest roadless areas in Colorado to coal mining. In a notice filed today, the Forest Service announced it would move forward by issuing a draft environmental impact statement on the proposal to pave the way for mining. The proposal would reopen a loophole in the “roadless rule” for national forests in Colorado to enable Arch Coal — the nation’s second largest coal company — to scrape roads and well pads on nearly 20,000 acres of otherwise-protected, publicly owned national forest and wildlife habitat in Colorado’s North Fork Valley.
