Climate Progress


Climate Progress blog is positioned to fill out the blogosphere with "the progressive perspective on climate science, climate solutions, and climate politics. It is a project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization". The editor, Joseph Romm is someone we've written about before, here and here. Featured climate news this week includes reference to an opinion piece by Bill McKibben in Tom Paine.commonsense and a powerfully written, seminal piece by Tom Athansiou, called "The Inconvenient Truth, Part II." The opening paragraph of Tom's piece in Foreign Policy In Focus was spine chilling:- "...So you already know the first part of the inconvenient truth: we're in deep trouble. And one good thing about 2006 is that this ceased to be a public secret. We not only know that the drought is spreading, the ice melting, the waters beginning to rise, but we also know that we know. And this changes everything." Good luck to Climate Progress. We'll be visiting them often and hope you will as well.
