The Arctic-News Blog describes the situation in the Arctic, highlighting the threat of albedo changes and large emissions of greenhouse gases due to decline of snow and ice and abrupt methane eruptions from the Arctic Ocean seafloor. Contributors to the blog all share a deep concern about the way climate change is unfolding in the Arctic and the threat that this poses for the world at large.
Posts cover topics such as sea ice, permafrost and methane clathrates, and will typically address recent developments on such topics. Posts are typically left as they are, in order to provide an archive on such developments. To find posts on a topic, a list of labels (or keywords) is added in the panel on the right hand side.
In addition to posts, the Arctic-News Blog contains pages that provide general background on topics. These pages are updated from time to time to reflect new developments. A list of pages is included in the panel in the right hand side. Further blogs, pages at facebook and groups at facebook are mentioned below. Note that only posts at this blog will show up when doing a label search.
Further blogs and facebook pages and groups set up and moderated or edited by Sam Carana

Widely followed ‘influencer’ at Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube for sharing significant resources and content in Earth Sciences, climate change and geo-engineering, to name but a few.
Physicist, Engineer, and now a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa. He is in a Ph.D. program, with a focus on Abrupt Climate System Change (atmosphere, oceans, Arctic, methane…)
He has earned a Masters in Science (M.Sc.) in Laser Optics/Physics. He also earned his undergraduate, with a Bachelors of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Engineering Physics.
Also interested in investment and startups in climate solutions and renewable energy. An avid chess player, who once attained a ranking of 41st in all of Canada. He has taught chess for the last ten years weekly, at a local community center.
CleanTechnica strives to be (er… remain) the most indispensable website on the planet for cleantech news and commentary. We have been covering the cleantech industry obsessively since 2008 — before it was popular for mainstream media to dedicate blogs or subdomains to the topic.
Technology-wise, our focus is solar power, clean transport, wind power, energy efficiency, and energy storage. However, we also get into many other topics — geothermal, hydropower, nuclear power, climate change, etc.
Overall, I think our top goals are to:
- inspire people and help them to take cleantech action in their lives
- share correct information on cleantech, including debunking widespread myths and horrible coverage in the mass media.
All in all, we want to be a useful site for the world and want to develop a strong, useful community of world citizens in order to help move humanity forward in a positive direction!
Communicate the science and effects of climate change to the public and decision-makers.
An independent organization of leading scientists and journalists researching and reporting the facts about our
changing climate and its impact on the public.
Climate Central surveys and conducts scientific research on climate change and informs the public of key findings. Our scientists publish and our journalists report on climate science, energy, sea level rise, wildfires, drought, and related topics. Climate Central is not an advocacy organization. We do not lobby, and we do not support any specific legislation, policy or bill. Climate Central is a qualified 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Scientific and Journalistic Integrity — We report the scientific facts of climate change however they fall.
- Importance of Informing the Public — Democracy calls for an informed public. We seek to reach the widest possible audience with the scientific facts to support a healthy public debate.
- Effective Communication — An innovative mix of cutting-edge science and communication defines our approach, to reach and move important audiences.
- Collaboration — We work in the lead in our specific field, and we contribute our talents and efforts as a partner with the community addressing climate change.
- No Advocacy — We advance no specific policy, legislation, or technology to address climate change. We are scrupulously non-partisan.

The Climate News Network is objective, and it publishes a daily news story on climate and energy. It is run by four volunteers (details below), all veteran journalists who have covered climate change for many years for international newspapers and broadcasting organisations and are now freelancing.
We use our contacts and experience to help both scientists and journalists to overcome the difficulties they face in telling people the facts about climate change. We offer scientists an unbiased way to report their research. For journalists, we provide reporting that spells out explicitly and authoritatively the context and the implications of the news. This service is entirely free of charge, the stories are there for all to use, and the site is open to everyone.
Climate One at The Commonwealth Club is a thriving leadership dialogue on energy, the economy and the environment. We bring together top thinkers and doers from business, government, academia and advocacy groups to advance the discussion about a clean energy future.
ThinkProgress is a news site dedicated to providing our readers with rigorous reporting and analysis from a progressive perspective.

Founded in 1999, Grist is a beacon in the smog — an independent, irreverent news outlet and network of innovators working toward a planet that doesn’t burn and a future that doesn’t suck.
Climate, sustainability, and social justice are the most important stories on the … well, on the planet right now. The stakes are high: just, you know, our entire frickin’ future. And it’s easy to despair when denial, delay, and doom dominate the headlines.
But that’s not the whole story, and it never will be. At Grist, we find reasons for hope and optimism every day — while also irritating and shaming those who stand in the way of progress. Our independent, nonprofit newsroom pursues in-depth stories on under-covered topics like clean energy, sustainable food, livable cities, environmental justice, and a better economy. We elevate solutions, expose inequity, and give our readers the context, knowledge, and tools to make a difference.

Skeptical Science is a non-profit science education organisation, run by a global team of volunteers.
The goal of Skeptical Science is to explain what peer reviewed science has to say about global warming. When you peruse the many arguments of global warming skeptics, a pattern emerges. Skeptic arguments tend to focus on narrow pieces of the puzzle while neglecting the broader picture. For example, focus on Climategate emails neglects the full weight of scientific evidence for man-made global warming. Concentrating on a few growing glaciers ignores the world wide trend of accelerating glacier shrinkage. Claims of global cooling fail to realise the planet as a whole is still accumulating heat. This website presents the broader picture by explaining the peer reviewed scientific literature.
Often, the reason for disbelieving in man-made global warming seem to be political rather than scientific. Eg - "it's all a liberal plot to spread socialism and destroy capitalism". As one person put it, "the cheerleaders for doing something about global warming seem to be largely the cheerleaders for many causes of which I disapprove". However, what is causing global warming is a purely scientific question. Skeptical Science removes the politics from the debate by concentrating solely on the science.
The Tyndall Centre was founded in 2000 to conduct cutting edge, interdisciplinary research, and provide a conduit between scientists and policymakers. With nearly 200 members ranging from PhD researchers to Professors, the Tyndall Centre represents a substantial body of the UK’s climate change expertise from across the scientific, engineering, social science and economic communities.
The Tyndall Centre has since 2000 significantly advanced the fundamental analysis of emission reduction from all major energy sectors, the understanding of climate impacts, risks, and adaptation options, the public perceptions of climate change, and the governance of climate negotiations and policymaking. From 2000 to 2010 the Tyndall Centre was core-funded to a total of £19m by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Engineering and Physical Science research Council, and the Economic and Social Research Council. In the years since core funding came to end, Tyndall partners receives several million per year in project funding, including from public and private consultations on how to respond to climate change.
