Search the internet for almost any climate-relevant topic and you’ll get tens of millions of hits. One aspect of building the Climate Web has involved spending thousands of hours doing just that, searching for and organizing climate-relevant source materials in the Climate Web. But the Climate Web is much more than a list of climate-relevant resources. Given the knowledge management power of TheBrain software used to build the Climate Web, there’s almost nothing the Climate Web can’t do to help you access your actionable climate knowledge. Some of the capabilities you’ll find in the Climate Web include:

  • More than 60,000 books, reports, journal articles, videos, news stories, and websites, making the Climate Web the closest thing to a collective climate intelligence. And more resources are added almost every day.

  • More than 5,000 Topical Headings allow quick access to topical collections of reports, news and opinion pieces, videos, websites, cartoons, infographics, extracted materials, and more.

  • More than 3,500 Index Entries, all linked together into their own knowledge web, allow you to click through climate change from the equivalent of A to Z and explore ever more granular topics and questions.

  • More than 10,000 graphics and ideas individually extracted by the Climatographers from great climate books, reports, videos, and news stories, and then organized in their own right, let you survey topical knowledge and then jump right to the original source material.

  • More than 500 Insights pages, authored by the Climatographers, help users leverage the Climatographers’ work on climate change since 1988.

  • More than 750 Topical Dashboards for topics ranging from Carbon Pricing Under a 2o C Scenario to Bounding Sea Level Rise, help you rapidly access the most relevant materials for coming up to speed on key climate topics.

  • Dozens of Topical Roadmaps deliver the equivalent of graduate-level courses in key climate topics, pointing you to the most relevant Climate Web while telling the “story” of the topic.

  • Audience Roadmaps point individual audiences, from business decision-makers to K-12 teachers, to the many places in the Climate Web where their actionable knowledge is likely to be found.

  • Dozens of Climate Sites extract information and materials from the Climate Web to create simple websites users can take advantage of without having to jump into the Climate Web itself. From climate quotes to climate videos, from carbon offsets to greenwashing, and from climate fiction to climate chess, Climate Sites are a great resource.
