Top 20 Planetsave Stories in May

top green news of the day

Hello Planetsavers! I thought I’d start doing a monthly wrap-up of our top 20 posts for people to have a glance at. Many of the top stories this month, as you’ll notice, were clearly tied into major world news events. Google is the main traffic driver for the large majority of sites on the Internet and ours isn’t an exception. Covering environmental news consistently, this often results in the biggest news stories rising to the top.

Note that these are the top 20 stories published in May. Some of our older pieces (such as: Global Warming Effects and Causes: A Top 10 ListCycling Shorts? Not For These Sexy Riders!119 One-Liners to Respond to Climate Science Myths) consistently get a ton of views from Google or StumbleUpon, primarily, but I chose to leave those out of this list.

Anway, below are the top 20 from May (out of the 192 stories we wrote). I have to admit, that many of my favorites are not on the list — more obscure green living and activism stories, for the most part — but hopefully you caught them as well.
