iBerry Hub    

Recent news and information on Climate Change.
There are many excellent sources of Climate Change information, some more challenging than others. Non-experts, including the iBerry team, prefer to highlight educational material that is basic and open to all. This new page is a first attempt to select links to relevant blogs and twitter lists but we need more recommendations. We would also like to include links to popular climate change websites and open textbooks. (Email address is on the front page)


Experimental Blog Post 'Collector'

The Collector below is programmed to output links and some initial text from Climate Change blog posts published over the last week. Latest posts are displayed first and clicking on any title of interest will show the post on a new page. At present only a limited number of blogs with 'standard' RSS feeds are being scanned. Any request from a blogger, NOT to scan their blog, will be respected.

The idea behind the Collector is to make some of the most recent recent climate change posts rapidly accessible rather than aggregate entire blogs as blog reader apps may do. Useful or useless idea? Any feedback, comments etc appreciated, particularly recommendations for blogs that should be included.
