Welcome to Green News Roundup, MNN's main news blog. We admittedly won't have the most local news, traffic and weather in the first four, seven or even 11 minutes. But if you're interested in science and environmental news, we get up early so you might not have to, scouring the Internet to collect and present you the most important or at least interesting stories of the morning. We don't stop there, though. We track the top news on Digg midday and recap the day's green news with a Last Call before we camp out for the night under our desks. So relax and let us do the work for you; we'll make sure you know what on Earth is going on.
