About This Website

Inspired by the work of climate expert, Dr. Mark C. Trexler and his partner Laura H. Kosloff, an environmental attorney, this special collection focuses on their work creating The Climate Web, an extensive curated resource of over 11,000 documents with links to 14,000 news stories, blogs, and websites about climate change.  

Like EarthSayers.tv, The Climate Web™ through aggregation and curation significantly reduces information overload for as E.O. Wilson noted, "If only we knew what we know...we are drowning in information while starving for wisdom," a problem significant given the enormity of the subject with little obvious progress to date and now accepted as the number one disruptor to our way of life, to commerce, and to our economic system.

Arctic Sea Ice Reaches Another Record Low (March 2017)

Published on Mar 22, 2017

On March 7, 2017, Arctic sea ice reached its annual wintertime maximum extent, according to scientists at the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and NASA. The Arctic sea ice extent set a record low after a warm winter. Combining the Arctic and Antarctic numbers shows that the planet’s global sea ice levels on Feb. 13 were at their lowest point since satellites began to continuously measure sea ice in 1979.
