Climate blog so far

4 April 2005
Ahead of openDemocracy's debate on the politics of climate change, which starts on 21 April, we're creating a new dedicated space for the climate blog, tentatively titled "openClimate" (now there's a suprise).

oD's earlier climate blog, a category of "oD Today", can be found here. Entries include:

Wings of Change - Can NGOs learn a lesson from the British government? (8 Mar)

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
