The Premium Access Climate Web
Topics | Questions | Entry Points


Most of the materials you’ll find in the Climate Web are physically linked together, making it very easy to click your way through sources and topics. Tags, on the other hand, allow any selection of Climate Web resources to be organized and displayed without being physically linked. Tags give us enormous flexibility to customize content delivery to facilitate access to potentially actionable knowledge.  They do have a downside, particularly on-line. 

Tagged resource collections in the Climate Web are called "Dashboards," each of which can save you from hours to days of time. In fact, you’re likely to find resources organized in Dashboards that you never would have otherwise come across either in the Climate Web or by searching the internet. The kinds of resources that we can organize via Dashboards are shown in the Legend just below. 

The bad news is that Dashboards are less convenient to use in the on-line (and Open-Access) version of the Climate Web precisely because they deploy virtual rather than physical links. You have to click on Dashboard thoughts to activate them, and when you do the entire Dashboard structure disappears. And since the on-line version of the software only remembers one click, you often won’t be able to simply backspace your way back to the Dashboard view. To learn more: Tags   

With local  Premium Access to the Climate Web all you have to do is hover your mouse over a thought to activate it, so the Dashboard doesn’t disappear. And if you do start exploring, you can easily backspace your way to the full Dashboard view. You can even pin the Dashboard to the top of your screen for ready access. 

There are hundreds of dashboards available to you in the Climate Web, falling into several categories: 

Dashboards that help you come quickly up to speed on the basics of key topics, in this case Carbon Pricing, pulling together resources from all over the Climate Web. 

Dashboards focused on narrower aspects of a topic, in this case Internal Carbon Pricing, but again pulling together resources from all over the Climate Web.

Dashboards that pull together just one category of resources, in this case a “Core Library” of books, reports, and journal articles relating to climate change solutions.  

Another such example is this Dashboard focusing on the anticipated physical impacts of 3o C of average global temperature change. 

Or this Dashboard, summarizing the chronology of the “oil and climate change” conversation over several decades.

This Dashboard compares nature-based mitigation potentials from multiple studies. 

This Dashboard pulls together the body of work of climate adaptation and communications expert Susanne Moser that you can access through the Climate Web.

This related Dashboard, pulling together key graphics and ideas extracted from the combined works of Susanne Moser, allowing you to survey her work on a single screen (all the graphics and ideas link back to their original source).

Or a particularly advanced Dashboard, showing the questions we were asked to answer as part of a client briefing on low-carbon investing (each question leads to a relevant collection of resources for answering the question). All of the materials are linked under the individual questions, allowing the client to revisit the materials at any time.  


  • Dashboards can also serve as the basis for in-depth topical briefings. For existing ready-made briefings, see this thought. 

  • For more information on the briefing prepared for a major investment firm on the linkage (or lack of linkage) between corporate carbon intensity and climate risk see this thought.

Now just Backspace in your browser to return to the Dashboard that you arrived here from!
