Published by the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota and authored by science journalists, researchers, and educators across the country, Ensia is an independent, nonprofit magazine that reports on a wide variety of environmental issues and debates. Founded in 2008 as a print magazine (and formerly titled Momentum), Ensia, which stands for Environmental Solutions In Action, expanded in 2013 to include an extensive online component. Here, visitors can peruse a variety of articles, editorials, infographics, multimedia, and interviews. Readers can search for content by Category (e.g. Health, Business, Ecosystems, Technology) or by Section (including Articles, Videos, and Voices - or editorial). Recent articles include a report about ongoing research to identify why some types of soil seem to protect plants from parasites - and the potential environmental benefits about such research; an editorial by the Director of the California Academy of Sciences that argues that the "urban agricultural" movement has environmental drawbacks; and a feature story about Madagascar's ongoing efforts to rid the country of poisonous toads.
