In the time since, E has established itself as the leading independent environmental journal.
Edited for the general reader but also of sufficient depth to appeal to the dedicated activist, E is a clearinghouse of information, news, commentary, and resources on environmental issues. E was founded and is published by Connecticut residents Doug Moss and Deborah Kamlani, and it is edited by Connecticut resident and long-time writer, author, and radio host Jim Motavalli.
