The Climate Web Team

The Climatographers have worked on climate change since 1988. In the face of almost infinite information about climate change, they see getting the right information to decision-makers — in other words the actionable knowledge that would influence their decisions — as one of the biggest challenges facing efforts to tackle climate change. All decision-makers are looking for “their” actionable knowledge when making decisions, whether individuals, business executives, or policy makers. When it comes to climate change, however, that actionable knowledge is usually lost in the general deluge of climate information.

The Climatographers built the Climate Web to facilitate individuals’ access to actionable knowledge about climate change. They have kept the Climate Web open-access to make actionable knowledge as available as possible. The Climate Web is also structured to provide climate change decision-support services to the business sector – visit The Climatographers website for more information.
