New look for Daily Climate homepage

We live in a fast-paced world. You deserve a fast-paced news stream.

We're proud to offer an update on our desktop website: Same great news selection, now better organized and much easier to access.


Gone are the tiny photos and small type. We live in an increasingly visual world, and our new site reflects that. We also give you quick access, on the right side of the page, to top stories in several of the subtopics we track: Politics, causes, resilience, solutions, good news, and the United Nations (yes, it's still relevant).

And we make it easy to sign up for our daily newsletter – 15 to 20 top stories of the day, hand-picked by our editorial team and delivered free to your inbox by 8a ET every morning.

We live on a changing planet and publish on an ever-changing medium. It was time for The Daily Climate to catch up. We hope you enjoy the changes. Whether you do or don't, we value your feedback: feedback@ehn.org
