Climate Sites at https://climatesites.net extract carefully curated topical information from the Climate Web, the closest thing to a collective climate intelligence existing today. Incorporating the work of thousands of experts across hundreds of topics, if there is an answer to tackling climate change it’s probably in the Climate Web!
While the Climate Web is open-access and easy to learn, its size and scope can be intimidating at first. Climate Sites offer a more familiar visual interface through which to explore key climate topics and materials from the Climate Web. Climate Sites also help you in better undertstanding the Climate Web itself.
