About us

Climate Home News is an independent news site specialising in the international politics of the climate crisis.

Climate change threatens people’s lives, homes and livelihoods around the world, with the heaviest burden falling on poor communities, young and future generations. The solutions involve radical economic and social change.

At Climate Home, we believe journalism can make a difference. Through clear, timely and rigorous reporting, we shine a light on the conflicting interests and global trends that shape the response to this threat. Our journalists hold the powerful to account, seek out diverse perspectives and set the news agenda with regular exclusives.
