Link of the month: Climate Change News Digest

I have recently come across this great internet news portal on climate change called Climate Change News Digest and I want to share it with as many of 1-earth blog readers as possible. It is one of the most comprehensive online news portals I have come across concerning climate change issues.

Climate Change News Digest has this to say about themselves:

"Climate Change News is an internet news portal that provides constantly updated links to the latest news on climate change. All articles are filtered to remove the repetition and rubbish and leave only the relevant. The aim of Climate Change News is to promote a broader view of climate change and to show how inherently it is linked to political, economic, ethical and even philosophical issues", and

"Currently the mainstream media is not presenting a broad coherent view of what is going on; it is up to us to join the dots. Here's an example: Leaked drafts of the 2007 IPCC report have revised upwards the lowest limits of temperature rise to 3°C. Scientists have already said that a 2°C rise will lead to runaway global warming. Come to your own conclusion, then visit the action and links pages to see examples of what can be done".

So check out CCND for the latest news on climate change for your daily dose of climate reality and rationale for cutting back on consumption and more reasons to get involved in or support the environmental movement.
