    SkS in the News

    Rob Painting's Increase Of Extreme Events With Global Warming (Basic Version) was re-posted on TreeHugger.

    Dana's Going down the up escalator and associated animated graphics continued to go viral, with re-posts, mentions, and/or links on TreeHugger, Climate Bites, Business InsiderGrist, Deep Sea News, Planet 3.0, The Climate Show, and Deltoid.

    SkS Spotlights

    The Open Climate Network, recently launched by the World Resources Institute  is an independent, international partnership that tracks and reports on the progress of key countries on climate change. OCN seeks to accelerate progress toward the low-emissions future by providing consistent, credible information that enhances accountability both between and within countries.

    This "new kid on the block" will likely become a valuable resource for SkS authors and users.
