I am going to have my students do projects relating to environmental issues such as the effects of acid rain on certain plants and animals, global warming, hazardous waste and the impacts of destroying the rainforest. What are some recent resources and computer programs which can be used by the students to help them with their projects. Who are some presenters that would be interested in talking to some high school students about environmental issues?

I think you should try contacting your fellow teachers through the "teacher talk" feature of Newton. I think you might find some willing speakers by contacting local environmental groups (for their point of view) and the speaker's reference bureau at your local colleges and universities (for an academic point of view) and possibly a trade association for electric utilities, or the Division of Educational Programs at Argonne National Laboratory for industry/government points of view.
