Introducing the Climate Desk

Starting today, Mother Jones and a notable group of news outlets are launching the Climate Desk, an unprecedented effort to cooperate on coverage of climate change. We’re working with the Center for Investigative Reporting, Grist, The Nation Institute, Slate, The Atlantic, Wired, and WNET on this project, which we describe as “a journalistic collaboration dedicated to exploring the impact—human, environmental, economic, political—of a changing climate.”As global warming is the biggest challenge of our time, we thought it only appropriate that we pool our resources to explain and explore how the world is adjusting to this new reality.

Reuters.com blogger Felix Salmon has an excellent post kicking off our collaboration. He’ll be looking at how—or whether—corporations are moving to address the risks they face from climate change. I’ll be covering the politics and policy from Washington, DC, and Kevin Drum will also be weighing in on his blog. We’d love story ideas and tips, so please send them to scoop@motherjones.com or drop us a note in the comments below. And stay tuned for more on our new project!
