Visit the one-stop info shop for CopenhagenDecember 9th, 2009 by cdunagan
I was planning to put together a list of sources to help readers follow the Copenhagen climate change summit.
But there is really no point of me doing the work, given the comprehensive Web site, called CopenBlog, put together by folks at the Society of Environmental Journalists. While I am a member of that organization, I had nothing to do with this project, though I wish I could say I helped.
What does the CopenBlog site contain?
All the coverage is categorized by topic for easy searching.
The site also lists compilations for the:
Official COP15 Twitter Feed,
The Guardian Copenhagen Page,
Washington Post Climate Page,
Grist Copenhagen Hub,
The Daily Climate, and
New York Times Climate.
“Official Sources” include Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Framework Convention on
Climate Change, and United
National Climate Change Conference.
I am also quite pleased with SEJ’s “Climate Change Guide,” which includes sections on:
Skeptics and Contrarians,
“Creation Care” and Evangelical Views,
Some Help for Sifting Disinformation from Information,
and several other helpful tools for environmental reporters.
I posted the links here so you can take a quick look at these subjects, but I think you’ll find that the Web site is so easy to navigate that you may wish to return frequently.
For a focus on the Northwest, I would add the Climate Impacts Group.
The only other thing I’d like to call your attention to for now is a series of opinion pieces by Paul Krugman, an economist and columnist for the New York Times who has been talking a lot lately about climate change and how the world ought to respond. Check out these columns:
