Rhode Island Environmental News

[Note: Feeds.WhiteLilac.Info has been rebuilt and expanded here.  August 2016]

News about Rhode Island's environment is gathered automatically from blogs and feeds, and almost every source originates in Rhode Island. This process catches some stories that aren't  important or relevant to this website, but everything here is in order of latest date published at top. Some of the feeds don't always work, some need adjustment, and some stories I see in newspapers or websites that I want to include but can't be brought in automatically, so some news is missing. Eventually, this news service will be refined, but there's plenty to read already.

A more useful way to read the news is by category. I assign environmental categories to news stories as I read them, which sometimes means they don't show up for a little while if I'm taking a break from indexing things here. I don't index the irrelevant stuff. Some stories go back to 2010 because their news feeds were set up to deliver older stories, not just the usual 5 or 10 stories.

Providential Gardener does not necessarily agree or disagree with any of the views expressed in these blogs. Facts may or may not be accurate. So read thoughtfully and do your own research in reliable sources. Of course, in this day and age of the Wild-West internet where everyone can publish their opinions, it's a serious and important question what "reliable sources" might be....

If you want to subscribe to one of the news sources directly, go to the source and grab the rss feed. In the menu, there is a list of news sources.
