Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 11, 2014 6:07 AM

This interactive website allows you to explore climate change from the following perspectives:

* By region (and it is global so you click on the location you want to begin)

* By theme (and there are seven themes):

   - Food Security

   - Food Emissions

   - Climate impact on production

   - Climate impact on people

   - Adaptation

   - Mitigation

   - Policy and Finance

Quoting from Larry Ferlazzo's post Big Facts is "intended to provide a credible and reliable platform for fact checking amid the range of claims that appear in reports, advocacy materials and other sources. Full sources are supplied for all facts and figures and all content has gone through a process of peer review."

This is an open access resource. Much more information may be found at the site. (And think about checking out Larry Ferlazzo's post at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2014/02/08/very-very-impressive-new-interactive-site-on-climate-change/

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 28, 2014 7:45 PM

Incisive article by Casey Coates Danson on how each of us can reduce pollution and mitigate climate change.  All of the steps are workable now.  All that's needed is the will to save our planet.  Some of the more interesting ideas:

 

Stop supporting corporate greed.

Change what we eat.

Work locally to reduce the amount of fossil fuels in our communities.

Pass a carbon tax to fund alternate energy research.

Treat "climate change" with the same sense of urgency that created the space program.

 

None of these approaches is the so-called "silver bullet" to controlling climate change, but used together, we may be able to save ourselves and the future of our children.  Aloha, Russ.
