I learned more from the Climatographers' earlier course on sea level rise than I did attending a two-day conference on sea level rise. Highly recommend them!

About The Climatographers

The Climatographers’ climate change experience dates back to 1988, when Mark Trexler started working on the first carbon offsets and nature-based solutions to climate change at the World Resources Institute. Later he continued that work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The Climatographers’ Mark Trexler and Laura Kosloff founded the first specialized U.S. climate risk consultancy in 1991, authored the first climate risk textbook in 2011, and founded the Climatographers in 2012 with the goal of facilitating access to actionable climate knowledge through knowledge management solutions like the Climate Web.
