Students and Volunteers wanted! Check it out! United Earth News PARTI
What is important to UEF and United Earth News?
It is not homogenized news. (Or Kim Kardashian, or the stock market - it is the birds and the bees and advancing public awareness on vital issues. )
Our slant and tone is one that supports life as the highest value on Earth. What will help our children to have a bright healthy future is at stake and our focus.
What is important are the Bee extinctions, changing climate could devastate our human food chain and make life impossible for our children in the near future.
Stories and events are evaluated on what the sequence or event will do to support life and mother nature. Many species are locked into what used to be a "normal" cycle of the seasons. One example is fish eggs hatch when the water reaches a specific temperature within hours. As our climate changes, species can not cope with what a regular clock from nature. Polar bears and penguins and local song birds are just a few species in danger.
The one thing that makes our planet unique is LIFE. By not protecting biological-diversity, we endanger our food chain. By not protecting our human and civil rights for all humans, we endanger the freedoms that we hold so high and prise. Liberty, justice and freedom for all is at stake of those who have it.
United Earth Fund and United Earth News objective is to foster public awareness, education and participation. EnviroNotice, for example, is building a central calendar for ecology, environment and human rights that make it easy to find what your interest and know who is doing what where - so you can join in, make new friends and make a difference.
Founded in 1977, there was no Internet. Satellite costs were over 6 million dollars a year just to link up universities in the U.S.A.. With no digital technology it was impossible to connect people with passion to change the world. With that barrier gone, it is up to us now to clear our vision and support life, liberty, human and civil rights for all of us on earth. Together we can do this. This is the first step forward in an ambitions project to create student journalists around the world, and establish wildlife refuges, and rescue networks for our most precious element on earth: LIFE.
Join us, and let us help you to foster your passions. Whether it is to report on your local community, or save an endangered species - or perhaps to stop human trafficking in the United States by welfare agencies - or to help feed the hungry; There is lots to do and you are welcome and needed to join in.
Disenfranchised and feeling hopeless or powerless can change if we work together. UEF and UEN aim to build bridges to make that happen by involving and supporting student projects, initiatives and investigative journalism. These initiatives will bring non-homogenized news, public awareness and participation alternatives to support life, liberty and freedom for all.
So we hope you will join in with us in your area of interest and help us make a difference supporting life, human rights and to protect endangered species. If the animals can't make it, we are the next endangered species. It appears we already qualify for that designation.
Whistle blowing on crimes, accountability and advancing human and civil rights is necessary and we hope you will join it, make new friends and make a difference with UEF

United Earth News
Supporting student journalism since 1978.
United Earth Fund (UEF) student's and volunteers began writing, researching and producing "United Earth News" (UEN) at the University of California in 1978. Our "Radio Environmental Calendar" did Cover stories that had little of no exposure in the mass media of that time. UEN stories focus on Human Rights, Ecology, Environmental toward creating public awareness and action initiatives.
Passionate students gained experience and accredited classes were made available tailored to our journalism and production objectives. Students joined in to make a difference.
Obstacles: With no Internet, RCA Satellite wanted $6 Million a year for satellite time to connect universities in all 50 US states. United Earth Fund, UEN's parent, could not raise the funds to connect the universities and schools. The lack of communication technology was the barrier: but no more.
UEN produced the Radio Environmental Calendar for stations to include in their news shows. UEF did produce documentaries and a "A Day with Rolling Thunder" in 1978 for international satellite distribution for the Symposium on Humanities international satellite conference. Although we invited Rolling Thunder, he said we was not allowed to travel to speak at the conference (government). We are working on these issues in our stories and features yet today. The Documentary "A Day with Rolling Thunder" is available on this site.
UEN began to work on human rights issues in our own country. RT told us to start in our own land so we began an international Human Rights campaign for the Hopi and Native American Indians. UEF did receive thousands of petition signatures by mail from Europe, Japan and United State in support of the Human Rights Initiative. UEF is in contact with Hopi today and the Hopi Story is available on this site. Peabody Copper, Peabody Coal, and Peabody Energy are all players in the 4-Corners strip mine and human rights crisis.
UEF/UEN began research on energy and environment. We went to Coal Fired Power Plants, Nuclear Energy Facilities, Hydro-Power Dams, Geo-thermal fields that produce power for the nation.
Becoming aware of the ability to turn from pollution to self-sustaining technologies UEF did create the "Energy Independent America" public awareness campaign. UC Davis Professor Harry O. Walker fed us content and historic data to present the story to the public. We are still on this mission today.
United Earth Fund and New Mission is to support LIFE as the highest value on planet Earth. Through public education and our EnviroNotice Calender, we intend to level the playing field by helping passionate people like you, connect and link to the areas they are passionate about. For example our Fracking Calendar and Endangered Species Calendar allow you to find who is doing what and where with context on each issue. We support life. That is our angle and activity.
How many Tigers are left and where are they? Who is doing what to preserve this species? What are the issues with the indigent native populations in the habitat area? What are the economic interests at play? How long might we have before the death knell sounds for a species? Our aim is to make it easy and fun to find out and connect to your interest.
With education, team work and student power, our aim is to protect Mother Nature/Ecology, Environment and Human Rights locally and globally.
Students around the world make this ambition and initiative possible. UEN and EnviroNotice make it possible to find what your interests and connect to take action or just keep informed.
So we invite you to join in, make new friends and make a difference!
