Green Lantern

Green Lantern is a advice column that provides "illuminating answers to environmental questions"  (not related to the comic book of the same name.) Want to know what jewelry companies/gemstones are the most environmentally responsible? Is it better to roll down your windows or turn on the ac when driving? Why are environmentalists always saying don't waste water if water gets recycled? The column answers these and hundreds of other queries.

They do an amazing job of providing sources - each one page article contains about 20 links to original studies, background sources, relevant companies, etc. They also have practical, real world advice for people who like the environment but also like their cars and aren't about to start bicycling everywhere. They're not preachy and they're not too technical, but they do a good job of reflecting what's scientifically accepted and what's contentious. If you're looking for a topic for an ecologically related paper or project, this is a great place to start.
