About Us

Welcome to The Climate News Network. It’s free, it’s objective, and it publishes a daily news story on climate and energy. It is run by four volunteers (details below), all veteran journalists who have covered climate change for many years for international newspapers and broadcasting organisations and are now freelancing.

We use our contacts and experience to help both scientists and journalists to overcome the difficulties they face in telling people the facts about climate change. We offer scientists an unbiased way to report their research. For journalists we provide reporting which spells out explicitly and authoritatively the context and the implications of the news. This service is entirely free of charge, the stories are there for all to use, and the site is open to everyone.
