April 22, 2009

April 22 was Earth Day, a day for celebrating the environment and thinking about what we can do to protect it. NSF supports basic research and educational efforts on a wide range of national and global environmental challenges--from green gasoline and other alternative sources of energy to climate change and protecting the Earth's oceans. This month, we've created Green Science, a page of news items recently highlighted on our home page, along with links to more environmental news and information.
