As an example: I just discovered that the US Geological Survey has an RSS feed of worldwide earthquakes: you can select a region and a magnitude threshold, and it will deliver up-to-the-minute links to earthquake information as it comes in.
There must be other science and environment feeds out there. Wildlife reports? Unusual weather information (beyond what is available on standard weather sites)? Solar flares?
