What does this site cover?
This site provides commentary on policy to address the problem of climate change. The emphasis is on information and analysis, although it does make judgements at times and always tries to make these clear. It does not seek to provide a news service.
It is intended for anyone interested in climate change policy. It primarily looks at policy worldwide, although it is based in the UK and sometimes addresses UK-specific issues.
It includes pages giving briefings on topics of continuing relevance and a blog which look at topical issues. The pages include material from previous blog posts, combined, updated and edited to provide a more comprehensive review of a particular area. Pages are added and updated as I develop new material.
If you wish to follow the blog you can easily do so by clicking on the “Follow” button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
The site is not about climate change science, developments in low emissions technologies, investments and commercial transactions, or energy policy more generally, except where developments in these areas have significant implications for climate change policy.
