Understanding climate change: Climatica

Just a quick post today to highlight a new and important website: http://climatica.org.uk/

Climatica is a new website aimed to bring to the fore issues about climate change. Their project statement:

“Climatica is a climate science and public interaction initiative developed by postgraduate researchers.  We offer short articles about climate change and the Earth system, written by the scientific experts (from postgraduate researchers to professors) for you!  We explain the basis of the science, how data is collected and what all of the research is telling us.  A range of written articles, video talks, blogs from the field, and opportunities for questions and discussion, mean that there is something for everyone.  Above all, we hope that you enjoy engaging with the wider, and ever important, subject of climate science!” Source: Climatica

As their project statement says, they are producing and highlighting a wide range of information about climate change, all of which would be indispensable for those teaching these issues (the glossary would be a great reference tool too).

It even featured in the Guardian today, highlighting why climate scientists should be doing more to communicate their findings:

I would urge anyone with even a remote interest in climate issues to keep an eye on this website.
