The Generator is an environmental news archive started and sponsored by the Ebono Institute.

It holds seven years of articles from mainstream media as well as items featured on The Generator radio program which ran weekly from 2005 until 2009.

An archive like this ensures that articles that may disappear from the public domain are preserved and complements feed based services such as Facebook and Twitter which, like broadcast media, are ephemeral and more or less synchronous in nature. Consider the case of NSW Premier Rees’ statement that Coal is more important than food’. This has now largely been expunged from the public record and almost the only evidence that it was ever said is here, on The Generator.

We always provide links back to the original article and it is sometimes instructive to see how articles “evolve” over time.

It also offers a means of providing context and background to your readers and followers as well as being a useful research tool.

The newsfeed is currently maintained by Neville Gilmmore. Other contributors are invited to post articles as they see fit.
