SkS in the News
Dana's Going down the up escalator and associated animated graphics continued to go viral, with re-posts, mentions, and/or links on TreeHugger, Climate Bites, Business Insider, Grist, Deep Sea News, Planet 3.0, The Climate Show, and Deltoid.
The Open Climate Network, recently launched by the World Resources Institute is an independent, international partnership that tracks and reports on the progress of key countries on climate change. OCN seeks to accelerate progress toward the low-emissions future by providing consistent, credible information that enhances accountability both between and within countries.
