Climate Now collects and categorizes all the vital climate change news from around the world daily. You will find a mixture of newspaper clippings and articles from scientific journals.
But with so much news, how is the worthwhile information chosen? For a start, only reputable information is considered. That means only news from long established, respected outlets is considered reliable unless the subject matter is not considered contentious. Articles that claim to be peer-reviewed science but which cast doubt on the certainty of anthropogenic climate change will not be included on Climate Now. The case is considered closed and it will not be debated.
Science is the focus in Climate Now and in particular climate science, therefore articles about weather (as opposed to climate) are normally only incorporated in the case of particularly major events.
Not too much attention is given here to clean energy technologies as the subject gets ample press elsewhere, but news about Air-Carbon Capture (Direct Air Capture) and geo-engineering are covered.
Climate Now collects and categorizes stories that are of interest to a wide range of viewpoints and don't necessarily reflect the views of Climate Now. And while positive and hopeful stories are included whenever possible, those that feature pessimism are welcome too, since there is a divergence of views about which approach is best.
Opinion pieces from the environmental media are usually not linked to on Climate Now in order to avoid inadvertent bias, while op-eds from major newspapers often will be where they are considered to be soundly scientifically based.
Finally, Climate Now is a globally relevant news site, which means that focus on any one country is avoided. Articles that are of interest only to Australians for example, or Canadians, will be avoided.
