ClimateState relaunch!

Welcome to the relaunch of ClimateState!

Mission statement
ClimateState gathers knowledge about the broad spectrum of climate change and tries to help increase understanding and awareness about the threat of dangerous (unchecked) climate change. The scope is to encourage the fast paced deployment of  solutions, i.e. carbon sequestration with Biochar and taxing Co2.
