About the "Collector"

The Collector (output above) is programmed to output links and some initial text from Climate Change blog posts published over the last week or so. Latest posts are displayed first and clicking on any title of interest will visit the original post on a new page. Over 30 blogs are now being scanned.

Posts appearing for the first time are labelled 'New Post'. To restrict output length without completely losing posts, older posts appear in a compressed form with clickable titles but no initial text. Blogger and WordPress blogs normally have feeds that the Collector can read but others may not. Please note that a request from a blogger, not to scan their blog, is always respected.
