Blog Profiles: More Science Blogs

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, PR Newswire selects an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job with promoting and contributing to the conversation. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet to us! Tell Blog Profiles writers Christine Cube, Mary Johnson, and Megan Boley why on @BeyondBylines.

On Earth Day next month, scientists will be taking to the streets of Washington, DC for the March for Science, co-organized by Earth Day Network.

They hope to humanize science and partner with the community to support science.

You don’t have to be a scientist to support them or even sound like one, just follow these four blogs.

1. It’s Okay To Be Smart

Joe Hanson is a Ph.D. biologist and science writer. He’s also the creator and host of the PBS Digital Studios’ It’s Okay To Be Smart series on YouTube.

His mission is to “tell the world about the awesomeness of ALL THE SCIENCE.” More than just facts, science is for everyone.

2. WUWT – Watts Up with That

Who better to talk about global warming and climate change than a meteorologist?

Anthony Watts spent 25 years on the air as an AMS certified television meteorologist. Now, he shares that knowledge through his blog as well as a weather technology and content business.

Check out these two posts Outwitting climate change with a plant ‘dimmer’? and Why did the buffalo cross the land bridge?

3. The Planetary Society

The Planetary Society was founded in 1980 by Carl Sagan, Louis Friedman, and Bruce Murray. Their goal was to introduce and educate everyone on the wonders of space.

It’s still the goal now under the leadership of Bill Nye, who’s also known as the Science Guy.

There are several bloggers who contribute to the Planetary Society. Nye is my favorite, but he does not write as much as I would like.

Check out these posts Trump’s first budget proposal is out. Here’s how NASA fared and You’ve met Saturn’s ravioli-shaped moon, Pan. Now learn how it was discovered.

4. EarthDay.org

Twenty years after the first Earth Day, 200 million people in 141 countries mobilized to bring environmental issues to the world stage. Earth Day will have more than a billion people participating in activities. It’s the largest civic observance in the world.

Earth Day Network uses its blog to share news and updates about the environment.
