Climate News & Views

It gets harder to keep on top of the latest climate news as the number of climate related events continues to climb, and more and more organisations are stepping up to provide service. We’re working on making things easier for you. For starters, we’ve set up an automatic news update system for you here, that will regularly update with the latest information. But, not only do we provide the latest climate information – we review it and provide commentary to help you make sense of what you read.We also make it easy for you to contribute news that you’ve come across concerning climate change as well. And, unlike most news services, we make it easy to provide direct public commentary on news items as well. And to make it even easier for you, we’ve categorised some of the key topics, so that you can find news updates directly related to popular topics – like climate related technology and research.

 

If you have news that you’d like to share, just look below the “Latest News” section and you’ll see a news input form that you can use to send us your news information. Just below that you’ll see a list on contributions provided by other visitors, as well as key stories that we’ve chosen to highlight for you.
