Facts and news

New Zealand's Royal Society has produced two major documents in 2016 which examine mitigation options for New Zealand and the likely impacts and implications of climate change.

RealClimate.org is a blog written by climate scientists. The discussions can be very high level, but the ‘start here’ page contains an excellent list of respected sources.

Climate Change Information contains New Zealand-based climate change information.

Climate Change Evidence and Causes is a summary of the issues in FAQ format.

Hot Topic blog – climate news for New Zealand.

Debate

On Skeptical Science you can learn more about a disputed issue in the climate debate. The science is presented according to different levels of complexity – from a tweet, through basic, to advanced, and is based on content from peer-reviewed papers.

Yale Environment 360 provides the latest news, opinion and debate in climate science.

Personal stories

Thin Ice presents the stories of people working in climate science. Very few of these people would call themselves climate scientists – they are a collection of people who study the ocean, air, past climate, numerical models, physics, ice, etc.

These blogs and websites are from people within this community, and show the excitement and frustrations of their work.
