Farewell Plenty, Hello Mother Nature Network.

If you've landed here, then it most likely means that you've arrived at the Mother Nature Network via PlentyMag.com.  

Like you, we were saddened when Plenty folded in early 2009.  Fortunately, we here at the Mother Nature Network were able to partner with Plenty to bring some of the best of their website to our site.  Any time you land on one of these articles, you'll see the familiar green Plenty logo on its pages.  If you'd like to see more of their articles, just type "Environ Press" into our search box and you'll have access.  

And now that you've found Mother Nature, let us tell you about some of the great MNN.com writers and features you might enjoy: 

* Peter Dykstra, former executive producer of CNN's Science, Technology, Environment and Weather Unit, writes the site's Media Mayhem, Green States, and Political Habitat columns.

* Karl Burkart, an expert in the field of green social networking,

covers the latest in Green Technology from new top 10 green-tech

events in 2009 to a new clean-energy 'super highway,' in Southern

California to the paperless post office of the future.


* Shea Gunther blogs about politics, energy, and the earth's resources. Recent postings include a look at compelling green start-ups, a guide to building your own wind turbine, and timely topics such as the Coen Brothers' new ad on the boondoggle of clean coal.

You can also:

* Visit the Lazy Environmentalist for easy ways to go green without even trying. 

* Know that the government must have good environmental news but not sure how to find it? We translate Uncle Sam for you. 

* Subscribe to MNN's weekly newsletter which brings you unconventional and lively green content alongside breaking environmental news from around the web.

We're glad you're here! 

One last note: A number of former Plenty readers have written to ask specifically about their subscription to the print magazine. While we’ve arranged to carry over some of the content from prior issues of Plenty Magazine,  the folks at Plenty expressly retained all rights  and obligations relating to subscriptions, writer payments, external costs, etc..  We appreciate and understand the frustration...sadly, many print media publications are in difficult straits and we've heard many similar tales of unfilled subscriptions.  We hope that we can offer - cost-free - much of the great content you came to expect from Plenty. Check out our homepage for the latest environmental news.
