Nielsen: The Oil Drum is the #4 Sustainability Site on the Web
The Oil Drum was recently ranked by Nielsen as the #4 sustainability site on the web (behind TreeHugger, WorldChanging, and Biopact). Biopact has a nice article on the report, which can be found here and from which the graphic below is duly appropriated.
The takeaway message: we have far to go with regard to making real progress on sustainability, folks. However, it is nice to see that our community is contributing in a small part. Keep it up. The more people who get the message, the more reason we have to be "sustainable," the more of a chance we have of lessening the pain. I'm not saying that I'm overly optimistic, but I'm saying that we have to continue to try to make the world a little bit better of a place. Thanks for helping us do so.
Below the fold is a link to the webinar and the report itself.
Here is a link to the audio webinar (which is VERY interesting regarding the trends in sustainability on the web) and the slides from the presentation in PDF format:
(and here's the description of the presentation...)
The audio webinar is a discussion of green marketing, greenwashing, and many other pieces of the green world. The PDF is a data-heavy analysis of trends in the green blogosphere and contains the analysis in which TOD is mentioned kindly.
