Monday What's on the Web: Climate Signals

Each Monday I highlight other bloggers or web contributors who are making important or interesting contributions to climate, sustainability, transportation or market transformation. Check back each week for another installment.

Climate Signals is an innovative database that uses social media to collect large volumes of very current information and studies related to climate change.  Anyone can participate; there is an instructional video describing how to do so.

What makes Climate Signals such a useful site is that the large network is constantly updating the site with the absolute latest and most current information on climate change.  It's more current and through even than Google or Google News in my opinion.  I use what I find there to help me keep my Twitter account current.  Here is a sample of stories and reports collected from a single day (January 19, 2010).

Growing season now 12 days longer over Northern Hemisphere

Warming due to loss of snow and ice twice as strong as estimated

Open water on Hudson Bay at year’s end for the 1st time on record

As with most well-designed sites, there are good keyword and search functions that help the user drill down to what they are looking for.  Definitely keep this site bookmarked.
