BOSTON, April 5 /CNW/ -- Responding to the growing public interest in
global warming, The Christian Science Monitor has launched a new long-term
initiative to focus greater coverage on the causes and effects of global
warming and its impact on climate change. This coverage will appear both in
the Monitor's daily newspaper and online at
The Monitor intends to be a key source for all wishing to better
understand global warming and will offer original content on climate change,
resources for understanding the latest scientific research on the topic, and
suggestions on how individuals can alter their habits to prevent global
warming and greenhouse effect.
"Our website, in particular, improves the way that the Monitor can help
readers understand a subject that for many years has been a source of
confusion and contention, but is now recognized as an issue that demands
attention from everyone," said Monitor Editor Richard Bergenheim when speaking
about the Monitor's commitment to global warming coverage. "We want to help
people understand what steps can be taken to mitigate effects of global
warming and how we can adapt to climate change."
As part of its global warming coverage, the Monitor will begin a new
series on adaptation that will examine how people are coping with climate
changes that have already altered how people live. The first report on
Thursday, April 5, will examine how individuals are adapting to water-related
challenges caused by changing weather patterns.
Every Thursday, the Monitor publishes in print and online a Weekly Media
Survey, a synopsis of global warming-related issues and events.
In addition to offering links to all its coverage of global warming, the
Monitor's global warming website, www.csmonitor.com/globalwarming, will expand
in the coming weeks to offer slide shows, audio and video reports, charts,
graphs, interactive options, and a myriad of links to global warming
Visitors to the Monitor's website can sign-up for a free weekly e-
newsletter on the environment.
Other topics addressed will include: causes of global warming; effects of
global warming; global warming myths; global warming prevention; greenhouse
effect; greenhouse gases; an inconvenient truth; pollution; and reports such
as the UN IPCC report on climate change.
